Kareena, Karisma mourn uncle Rajiv Kapoor

Raj Kapoor’s youngest son, Rajiv, passed away in Mumbai on February 8.

Neetu Kapoor announced the shocking news of her brother-in-law’s demise and family members and friends visited the Kapoor family home in Chembur (eastern Mumbai) to pay their last respects.

Chimpoo, as Rajiv was fondly called, is the third Kapoor sibling to pass away in a short span of time. His oldest sister Ritu Nanda passed away last January while elder brother Rishi Kapoor passed away last April.
