Kareena Kapoor Khan shared an adorable black and white photo, also featuring late actor Rishi Kapoor. She wrote ‘Broken but strong’ and Ranbir Kapoor’s sister Riddhima Kapoor, among others, also dropped a comment on the post.
The past year has already been tough for the Kapoor family as they lost Rishi Kapoor and Ritu Kapoor. And now, with the demise of Rajiv Kapoor, this has only made things harder. In fact, Kapoor was snapped at the Kapoor family Christmas lunch in 2020 and was not very active at gatherings.
Rajiv made his debut in 1983 with Ek Jaan Hain Hum. He took on the lead role in Ram Teri Ganga Maili back in 1985. Following that, he is well known for a handful of films like Hum To Chale Pardes, Zabardast, and more. The actor last worked in Zimmedaar in 1990 and later, worked as a producer and director.
May his soul rest in peace!
