Krishna Raj Kapoor breathed her last today morning and the entire Bollywood industry is in a deep shock.
Some interesting things about the lady are coming out now and let us tell you that being the wife of legendary actor Raj Kapoor, she too had an eye for films.
A leading daily quoted Rima Jain sharing some experiences of her mother. Ram Teri Ganga Maili was one film which was loved by the audience a lot. Talking about the climax of the film, Rima said “If he shot a scene, he’d ask her opinion. Like he showed her the climax of Ram Teri… where Ganga (Mandakini) dies. My mother said, “Ganga mar gayi, picture flop!”
Raj Kapoor made two endings of the film and when he showed her the other one. As he didn’t liked anyone to interfere in his films he said “Ab Krishnaji Raj Kapoor ko seekhayegi kaise film banana!” When she was younger he’d call her Billo. Later he began addressing her as ‘Krishnaji’ out of respect. But after 10 drinks if she chided him about going overboard, he’d shout back ‘Krishna!’ Once they had a fight where my mother picked up the bottle and threw it on the porch. The bottle rolled and rolled… hit against something and stood up! My mother couldn’t help laughing. Papa said, “Stupid woman! She thinks it will leave me, it won’t!”
Well, that was the kind of relationship Raj and Krishna shared with each other. Krishna Raj Kapoor- the favorite Krishna aunty will be sorely missed.
