This happened a few days after RK studios, which Krishna held very dear, was sold off, after the Kapoor family performed their last Ganesha Chaturthi there.
Krishna Raj Kapoor, who tied the knot with Raj Kapoor in May 1946, is survived by her children Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Rajiv Kapoor, Ritu Nanda and Reema Kapoor.
The last rites will be performed at Chembur crematorium, confirmed Randhir.
Though her sons, Randhir and Rajiv Kapoor are in Mumbai, actor Rishi Kapoor on Sunday left for USA for medical treatment.
Hello all! I am taking a short leave of absence from work to go to America for some medical treatment. I urge my well wishers not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. It’s been 45 years “plus”of wear and tear at the movies. With your love and good wishes,I will be back soon!— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) September 29, 2018
Krishna was also part of special screenings, her last being Sanju starring her grandson Ranbir Kapoor....
