On February 9, 2021, the Kapoor clan had gotten the biggest shock as Randhir Kapoor's youngest sibling, Rajiv Kapoor had left for the heavenly abode. No one had believed their eyes when late actor, Rishi Kapoor's wife, Neetu Kapoor had shared her last goodbye for her late brother-in-law on her Instagram handle. She had posted a picture of Rajiv and had written, "RIP".
Recently, in an interview with ETimes, Randhir Kapoor opened up on the pain of losing his three siblings. The actor shared that his brother, Rajiv had no prior medical condition. Randhir said, "I am left alone in this house. Rajiv was a very gentle and extremely jovial person. It is so tough to believe that he is gone. He had no medical history. His health was simply fine; he had no problems whatsoever. I don't know what's happening. I was equally close to Rishi and Rajiv. I have lost four people from my family--my mother Krishna Kapoor (October 2018), eldest sister Ritu (January 14, 2020), Rishi and now Rajiv. These four were my central core, with whom I did most of my talking." (Also Read: Soha Ali Khan's Living Room Has A Big Wall Size Painting Of Her Own, She Shares A Glimpse Of It)
Randhir Kapoor also narrated the whole incident how he had found out that his brother, Rajiv had a cardiac arrest. He said, "Well, I have a 24-hour nurse since I have a bit of a problem in walking due to a nerve-related issue. The nurse went to wake him up in the morning at about 7:30 am and he did not respond. She detected that his pulse was very low and dropping further. We rushed him to the hospital but all efforts to save him failed. And, now I am left alone in this house."
Kareena Kapoor Khan had penned her last goodbye for her uncle. She had shared a rare picture of Raj Kapoor with his three sons. In the picture, we could see Raj Kapoor flashing his big wide smile and had hugged his youngest son, Rajiv Kapoor, who was standing right beside Rishi Kapoor and on the other side was Randhir Kapoor. Alongside the picture, Kareena had written, "Broken but strong."

The late actor, Rajiv Kapoor had shared that while everyone was elder to him and had passed out, it was Rishi Kapoor, with whom he was left in 11th standard. To this, Rishi Kapoor had remarked, “I didn’t pass out, but I failed out.” Continuing to this, Randhir Kapoor had said, “We all failed. All of us failed.” Rishi ji had added, “Hum sab 11 fail hain.” When Karan Johar had asked if nobody went to the college, Randhir ji had said, “Only girls went to the college, Ritu and Rima.” To this, Rishi ji had added, “And Ranbir, yeah, Ranbir has gone to the college.” (Don't Miss: Amitabh Bachchan Remembers His Father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan As He Pens An Excerpt Of 'Madhushala')
