"These guys had a WhatsApp group on which they were frequently in touch. The WhatsApp group was pretty active and yesterday a certain Rajiv Khanna in that group happened to post something nice about his daughter's new work. Reading it, Rajiv Kapoor felt so happy that he called up Rajiv Khanna last night and spoke to him about the same and extended his congratulations wishing the Khannas the very best” the news portal quoted a source as saying.
Rajiv Kapoor’s last rites were performed in Mumbai in presence of close family members and friends. Besides the Kapoor family, Bollywood actors like Chunky Pandey, Alia Bhatt, Shah Rukh Khan among others also arrived at the funeral to pay their last respects.
