Shweta Bachchan Nanda's mother-in-law passed away in the wee hours of January 14 in New Delhi at the age of 71 after a seven-year-long battle with cancer. Ritu Nanda was the daughter of late Bollywood actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor and sister to Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor. She was married to businessman Rajan Nanda who passed away two years ago.
