Bollywood has lost yet another powerful legendary star in form of Rajiv Kapoor. Rajiv Kapoor lost his life to cardiac arrest and left for heavenly abode on 9th February 2021. But the person most affected by this untimely and tragic demise of his uncle as ace Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor. Ranbir is in deep shock with uncle Rajiv Kapoor’s sudden death.
Kapoor family and Bollywood was already mourning the loss of evergreen and stalwart bollywood star Rishi Kapoor’s death which took place last year in April 2020 and now in this new year 2021, the grief and mellow mood has yet again intensified with late Bollywood actor Rajiv Kapoor’s death. Most importantly, this is a testing time for Kapoor family as Ranbir is in deep shock with uncle Rajiv Kapoor’s sudden death.
The youngest Kapoor scion who had been extremely close with his beloved uncle Rajiv Kapoor of Ram Teri Ganga Maili fame, Ranbir is in deep shock with uncle Rajiv Kapoor’s sudden death.
This is true that Rajiv Kapoor’s sudden death came in as a huge second blow and shock to Ranbir after his father Rishi Kapoor’s death last year.
From the entire Kapoor family, it was only Ranbir that Rajiv Kapoor was closest to as he was not much of a talking kind of a person but whenever they both met, Rajiv always poured out his heart to Ranbir.
Infact, in a recent interview byte with a senior Bollywood journalist from a leading digital entertainment portal, a friend of the Kapoor family was quoted saying, “They were really close. In fact, Ranbir was closer to his uncle (Rajiv) than his father at one point of time. It was only when Chintuji (Ranbir’s father Rishi Kapoor) fell ill that Ranbir became close to his father. With Chimpoo Uncle (Rajiv Kapoor) Ranbir always opened up his heart, spoke his mind. He will miss Chimpoo Uncle the most”.
After still trying to come to terms with the irreplaceable loss of his father in the last year April 2020, this one can be counted as a big and huge second blow in a series for Ranbir as his beloved Rajiv Uncle’s death has left him totally in a state of shock and also literally shaken as well. Even Alia Bhatt was close to Rajiv.
Earlier, back in April 2020 when Ranbir lost his father Rishi Kapoor it left entire film industry and fans in state of grief but mostly it was his wife Neetu Kapoor who was affected severely by this.
In a recent interview byte with a senior Bollywood journalist from a leading digital entertainment portal, when asked about the one person who helped Neetu Kapoor to get over the grief and mellow feeling of bereavement, a friend of the Kapoor family revealing that person’s name was quoted saying, “It is her daughter Ridhima. If it wasn’t for her, Neetuji would have been lost after Chintuji’s death. Ridhima has taken full charge of her mother’s life. She has put her own life on pause to devote herself fully to her mother”.
Speaking about how Neetu’s son Ranbir finds it difficult to express his feelings, the friend furthermore also added, “Though he cares deeply for his mother, and is as worried about her as his sister Ridhima, it is Ridhima who came forward to be with her mother during this hour of need. Ridhima is so protective of her mother now it’s almost as if she is the mother and Neetuji the daughter”.
