The Kapoor family is considered as one of the pillars of Bollywood. It has given us one exceptional performer after another. Late Raj Kapoor is considered as one of the greatest 'showman' that Indian cinema ever produced. Today, Karisma Kapoor has shared a old picture of Raj Kapoor along with his wife, Krishna Raj Kapoor. We can see that he is looking handsome in a suit. It looks like he has been garlanded somewhere as there is one in his hand. Krishna Raj Kapoor looks dainty with the veil over her head. She looks exceptionally beautiful.
As we know, Raj Kapoor was married to Krishna Malhotra. She was his distant cousin. It was an arranged marriage. It seems the great Prithviraj Kapoor felt that Krishna was perfect for him. Throughout his life, Krishna was a pillar of strength. Though it was an arranged marriage, it seems the filmmaker doted on her. His daughter, Rima Jain had said that Raj Kapoor's fascination with the woman in white could be traced to the time when he first saw Krishna Raj Kapoor. It seems she was in a white saree with mogras in her hair, taking music lessons on the sitar. She told Filmfare, "Being an artiste, he reacted to the visual. He was reminded of Goddess Saraswati. The image of the ‘lady in white’ stayed in his mind and was later seen in his films. My mother always wore white and had a flower in her hair."
Krishna Raj Kapoor who passed away in October 2018 due to a cardiac arrest was 87. Karisma Kapoor has always spoken fondly about her grandfather. She has said how she on the sets of Ram Teri Ganga Maili told him that she wanted to be an actress. It seems he told her that she did have to work very hard to survive and shine in this industry.
