“Of all the Kapoors, it was Chintu (Rishi Kapoor) who  was closest to her. He’s devastated  by her death,” informs a source close to the Kapoors. Known to be ever-cheerful, Ritu Kapoor-Nanda’s deteriorating health  had wiped  the smile  off  her face in recent  years. She spent  most of  her last years in the US getting medical treatment  for her illness.  “She  was   Raj Saab’s favourite. The  sunshine girl. A pity, the illness destroyed  her  happiness. But through she continued to be happy  person. She  bravely battled  the  disease  for  nine years, ” says  a source close to the family.

Rishi himself has battled cancer bravely. He had spent much of 2018 in the US battling the disease with several stars meeting him while he was indisposed. The Kapoor siblings are known to be quite close though sister Ritu was rarely in the limelight. With the spotlight firmly on the male members back in the 70s and 80s – Rishi, Randhir and Rajeev – Ritu stayed away from the world of films.
