“My mother passed away at about 5 a.m. today due to cardiac arrest…old age was another factor. We are deeply saddened by her demise,” son Randhir told PTI.
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.
She was the sister of renowned actors Rajendra Nath, Prem Nath and Narendra Nath. Her sister Uma is married to veteran actor Prem Chopra.
The last rites will be performed at Chembur crematorium, Randhir said.
