In May 1946, Raj Kapoor married Krishna Malhotra and the couple had five children - three sons, Randhir, Rishi and Rajiv, and two daughters, Ritu and Rima. Her son, on Monday, shared the sad news of her demise, saying, "My mother passed away at about 5 am today due to cardiac arrest... Old age was another factor. We are deeply saddened by her demise."
