This is no news that Raj Kapoor was the original showman of Hindi cinema. His first film was Inquilaab, at the age of 11, and his first lead was opposite Madhubala in Neel Kamal. After that, there was no looking back for him. With every year in Bollywood, he gave his fans many iconic characters and made sure that his magic never leaves their souls.
While Raj Kapoor is known to have many rumoured relationships in the industry, he married Krishna Raj Kapoor, daughter of his father's maternal uncle and according to his daughter remained faithful to her throughout his life. Rishi Kapoor in his book ‘Khullam Khulla’ also opened up about his father Raj Kapoor’s extramarital affairs and said that he was involved with Bollywood actresses Nargis and Vyjayanthimala which forced his mother to stay away from him. She came back only when Raj Kapoor closed that chapter of his life.
On the other hand, speaking about her parent’s relationship, Rima Jain once shared in an interview with Filmfare, “No matter what was said and written, Papa loved mother deeply. The truth is that all life he remained obsessed with her. He may not have expressed it to her the way she’d have liked him to. She may not have been a big part of his life. But whatever Raj Kapoor did, he came back home. His love for her was immense. He’d even press her legs and joke, ‘Raj Kapoor ka kya haal bana diya! Meri biwi mujhe pair dabane lagaa rahi hai. Ghar ki murgi dal barabar!’ He loved celebrating New Years because it also happened to be mom’s birthday.”
Together they have 5 children- Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor and two daughters Ritu Nanda and Rima Jain.
