Riddhima Kapoor has shared a rare family picture from her archives and it’s a treat for the film lovers. It shows Raj Kapoor’s late wife Krishna Raj Kapoor sitting with four of her children.

Riddhima shared the black-and-white photograph on her Instagram Stories and captioned it, “Classic.” Krishna Raj can be seen in a sari with her head covered as she sits with one of her kids, probably her youngest child Rajiv Kapoor in her lap. Her daughter Ritu Nanda seems to be on the left whereas her eldest son Randhir Kapoor is on the extreme right. While all of them are simply smiling for the camera, little Rishi Kapoor is the only one posing with a hand on his waist. Raj Kapoor’s other daughter Rima Jain seems to be missing in the photo.

Rishi passed away in April after a two-year battle with leukaemia. He was the third generation actor of the famous Kapoor dynasty and is survived by his wife Neetu, actor son Ranbir Kapoor and daughter Riddhima. Rishi’s sister Ritu had also succumbed to cancer in January this year. Bollywood actors Karisma and Kareena Kapoor are the daughters of actor-filmmaker Randhir Kapoor. One of Rima Jain’s sons Armaan Jain had also made his Bollywood debut in 2014 with the film Lekar Hum Deewana Dil but is not active in films at present.

Meanwhile, Rishi’s family have welcomed a new family member - a dog whom they have named Doodle Kapoor. The little black and white pug has been dominating Riddhima and Neetu’s social media accounts ever since his arrival. Riddhima was recently asked about the well being of mother Neetu on Instagram. She replied, “We derive strength from each other, we are well.”
