Bollywood celebs attend Mona Kapoor’s prayer meet
B-town celebs were spotted paying homage to Mona Kapoor at her prayer meet held yesterday
Mona Kapoor was quite well acquainted with the industry and had a lot of friends in B-town. And that wasn’t ‘coz she was Boney Kapoor’s ex-wife, but also the CEO of Future Studio, one of the largest indoor shooting studios in Mumbai. When she passed away on Sunday (March 25), Bollywood mourned. And they mourned again at the prayer meet held yesterday, March 28. Industry insiders have always described her as a very warm and affectionate person and that was pretty much evident as virtually the whole industry appeared for the chautha and prayed for her soul. Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapur attended with their parents Babita and Randhir Kapoor. Priyanka Chopra came along with her father Ashok Chopra to offer her condolences to the bereaved family. Even cousin Parineeti Chopra was seen attending the meet. She stars opposite the late Mona Kapoor’s son Arjun Kapoor in her next film Ishaqzaade.
From the Bachchan family, mother and son duo Jaya and Abhishek were seen paying their tributes. Mona’s family – brothers-in-law Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor, Sanjay’s wife Maheep, nieces Sonam and Rhea – were present. Others commemorating her death were Abhishek Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Vidya Balan, Chunky Pandey, Aruna Irani, Rohan Sippy, Shatrughan Sinha, Malaika Arora Khan and Arpita Khan.
