Seventy-one-year-old Ritu Nanda, the daughter of Bollywood’s showman Raj Kapoor, passed away at early hours on Tuesday in New Delhi after a long battle with cancer. Sister of Rishi, Randhir, Rajiv, and Rima Kapoor, Ritu was married to Rajan Nanda and is survived by son Nikhil and daughter Natasha Nanda. Nanda rose to fame for selling 17,000 pension policies in a single day that led to her mention in the Guinness Book of Records.

 Amitabh Bachchan, whose daughter Shweta Bachchan is married to Nikhil, took to his blog and wrote, “My ‘samdhan’ Ritu Nanda, Shweta’s Mother in Law passed away suddenly at 1.15 Am .. cannot communicate .. travelling (sic).” Senior Bachchan along with daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were spotted at the Mumbai airport clad in white attires on their way to Delhi early in the morning.
