Raj Kapoor's wife Krishna dies

Kareena Kapoor Khan's father Randhir Kapoor said, "My mother passed away at about 5 am today due to cardiac arrest.old age was another factor". We've across with several photographs with a bunch of unseen photographs of Krishna Raj Kapoor with her family members.

In May 1946, Raj Kapoor married Krishna Malhotra and the couple had five children - three sons, Randhir, Rishi and Rajiv, and two daughters, Ritu and Rima.

Krishna Raj Kapoor, the matriarch of the Kapoor family passed away leaving the entire Kapor family to mourn this loss. And right till the showman's death in 1988, she was by his side, providing constant support as Raj Kapoor battled various controversies. Kareena's actor husband Saif Ali Khan was also there.

Her last rites will take place at Chembur crematorium.
