Bollywood celebrities like Aamir Khan, Amjad Ali Khan, Karan Johar and Manisha Koirala mourned the death of Kapoor family's matriarch, the widow of the legendary Bollywood actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor. "We are deeply saddened by her demise", son Randhir told Press Trust of India shortly after her demise. She was grandmother of Kareena, Karisma, Ranbir Kapoor.

Dignity under duress was Mrs Krishna Raj Kapoor's mantra to survive.

Krishna, was the wife of late superstar, Raj Kapoor and mother to Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor and daughters Rima Jain and Ritu Nana. If we look at the passionate affairs that Raj Kapoor had right under his wife's aquiline nose, then yes, she could be seen to be passive and docile.

Author Suhel Seth also tweeted his condolences to the Kapoor family.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan arrived at Kapoor residence to pay her last respect.

Several B-Towners took to social media and offered their condolence.

In the industry, Krishna commanded a lot of respect, and that was visible as a string of celebrities turned up to pay their last respects. "However when Raj Saab ignited a similar passion for Vyjanthimala, Krishanji put her foot down and simply walked out with the children until her husband apologised and came back". The last rites will be performed at a Chembur crematorium, Randhir said.
