Actors Kareena Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor took to Instagram to remember their family member, Raj Kapoor’s elder daughter Ritu Nanda on her 72nd birth anniversary. Ritu died this January after a prolonged fight against cancer.
Kareena took to Instagram stories to share a vintage black-and-white childhood picture of her aunt, the signature Kapoor gene very much in place. Neetu too took to Instagram stories to share a more recent picture with Ritu from last year. She wrote: ‘30 October 2019’. It appears to be from Ritu’s birthday celebration last year.
On January 14, Ritu died after a long struggle with cancer. Ritu, the second child of late Raj Kapoor, was married to industrialist Rajan Nanda and was the mother-in-law of Shweta Bachchan Nanda. Over the last two and half years, the Kapoor family lost three members in quick succession -- family matriarch Krishna Kapoor died in 2018 while Ritu passed away in January. Actor Rishi Kapoor, also battling cancer, died in April this year.
Last year, on the occasion of Ritu’s birthday on October 30, nearly the entire Kapoor clan came together, including Karisma Kapoor and Shweta. Karisma had dated Shweta’s brother Abhishek for seven years before they broke off. Abhishek went on to marry Aishwarya Rai while Karisma married Delhi-based industrialist Sanjay Kapur. They later got divorced.
Neetu has, in the past, shared pictures of the family and some of them have featured Ritu. She has often shared pictures of entire Kapoor clan, many of which featured Ritu.
