Rajiv Kapoor made his Bollywood debut in 1983 with Ek Jaan Hain Hum and has since appeared in films such as Aasmaan, Lover Boy, Zabardast, and Hum To Chale Pardes. He last worked in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Toolsidas Junior. Rajiv Kapoor has also donned the director’s hat and made the 1996 film PremGranth, which starred his late brother

Rishi Kapoor

and Madhuri Dixit-Nene.

Earlier, in an interview with Yahoo News,

Randhir Kapoor

conveyed his emotions regarding the loss of his brothers. He mentioned that he was finding it challenging to reconcile with life, feeling as though he had lost his two hands. He expressed a prevailing fear regarding his brother Rishi’s health, considering his battle with cancer. Randhir recalled visiting Rishi alternately during his treatment in America. However, he remarked that nobody anticipated Rajiv’s sudden passing.

Randhir reminisced about the time he and Rajiv spent together at their bungalow in Chembur. He expressed regret that despite Rajiv’s initial success with his debut film, he couldn’t achieve much in Bollywood. Randhir noted that Rajiv’s short-lived marriage to Aarti Sabharwal in 2001 and various unfortunate incidents in his life had a negative impact on him. This led to deep frustration, causing him to lose focus on his professional endeavors. Despite being considered the most talented among the Kapoors, Rajiv’s life lacked stability. Randhir also mentioned Rajiv’s directorial venture, “Prem Granth” (1996), which unfortunately failed.

Rajiv’s brother also revealed that Rajiv was quite enthusiastic about his involvement in ‘Toolsidas Junior.’ Randhir Kapoor mentioned that Rajiv was hopeful about receiving substantial character roles in the film. However, he tragically passed away before its release. ‘Toolsidas Junior’ was eventually released in 2022.
