As Krishna Raj Kapoor passed away on Oct 1, most of the Bollywood celebrities were present at the funeral including Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Arjun Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar, and the entire Kapoor family. However, Krishna's son Rishi Kapoor, Neetu and their son, Ranbir, were not present in the funeral procession owing to Rishi's medical treatment.

But Alia Bhatt, along with Karan Johar, was in attendance in order to make up for her rumoured beau Ranbir's absence. Yesterday, a video of Alia making a call to Ranbir at the funeral of Krishna Raj Kapoor went viral.

Alia's phone screen can be seen with the name 'RK' flashing on it. When the video gets disconnected, Alia tries to get the connection again. Check out the video right here-

As the First Lady of Bollywood Krishna Raj Kapoor ji went to her heavenly abode, it was heart tugging to not see her favourite son Rishi Kapoor ji & grandson Ranbir during her final go. Apparently, Rishi-Neetu ji are in US for his treatment. Whereas Ranbir went to Abu dabi a night prior to his dadi's death! Here, Alia was trying to Face Time Ranbir whom she has saved as "RK", so that he could be a virtual part of the final rites of his beloved granny 😭But alas, the disconnection issues made it impossible! Karan & Abhishek asked her if it worked but she shakes her head disappointed 😞 I'm so proud of you jaan for carrying out your responsibilities with dignity & grace. For going to meet the Kapoor clan, spending time with them until the cremation, standing with them, supporting & solacing them at such a grieving hour ❤ Your just like your Dad, always there for people who need you! Bc as my daddy says "It is better to be there for someone who grieves, at a funeral than being at a wedding", I'm extremely proud to stan you 😭😻 Ofc, inhuman peeps would call it all a PR again but the cheap, rude comments under most media posts regarding Krishna ji's death are intolerable! If you can't respect a deceased soul, your no human. Let the family get their much needed peace at this phase of sorrow. Your harsh words aren't going to touch their vicinity 💫 But what confused and pressed me more is that the religious customs & rituals couldn't wait for Rishi sir & Bira to arrive and be part of the mourning 😫 It was so heartbreaking 💔 to know Bir is all there alone, probably guilty of leaving a night prior, when his colleagues & fam could attend the funeral. I hope no one goes through that guilt 😔😭 How badly I wanted his dadi to attend Bira's wedding & see him settled 😔 I send all my deepfelt condolences & prayers to the entire clan along with my Bir. She's irreplaceable but we can assure ourselves that she might have met her beloved husband up there 🌸 ❤🌠 #krishnarajkapoor #RIP #angelsdontdie #foreverremembered #condolences
