Wife of legendary actor Raj Kapoor, Krishna, passed away on Monday due to cardiac arrest. She was 87.

"My mother passed away at about 5 am today due to cardiac arrest...old age was another factor. We are deeply saddened by her demise," son Randhir said.

In May 1946, Raj Kapoor married Krishna Malhotra and the couple had five children - three sons, Randhir, Rishi and Rajiv, and two daughters, Ritu and Rima.

The last rites will be performed at Chembur crematorium, Randhir said.

On Instagram, Riddhima, the elder of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu's two children, posted a picture of Krishna from her family vacation in Paris.
