Rajiv Kapoor passed away on Tuesday, February 9, and was 58 years old. According to reports, he suffered a massive cardiac arrest, following which Randhir Kapoor rushed him to Inlaks Hospital, which was the closest medical facility near their residence in Chembur. The doctors declared him dead on arrival.
Kapoor is known for his performance in ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili‘ (1985) and ‘Ek Jaan Hain Hum‘ (1983). He was also the director of ‘Prem Granth‘, which starred Rishi Kapoor in the lead.
Neetu Kapoor, Rajiv Kapoor’s sister-in-law had expressed condolences on Instagram.
Rajiv made his acting debut with Ek Jaan Hain Hum in 1983 and starred in multiple films such as Aasmaan (1984), Lover Boy (1985), Zabardast (1985). However, none of the films could touch the popularity that was achieved by 1985’s Ram Teri Ganga Maili. He starred opposite Mandakini in the film, which was directed by his father.
Rajiv’s friends from the film industry remembered him on social media. “Devastated!! Another big loss to the family one of my most favourite people in the world. Love him so so dearly. Don’t remember a Happy Moment without him. Chimpu uncle we will miss you,” wrote actor Neil Nitin Mukesh. “That’s a terribly shocking news. RIP Rajeev kapoor,” wrote Divya Dutta.
