Krishna Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor and his wives, Shashi Kapoor and Jennifer and their children were and are the only decent members who carried themselves with elegance. The rest of them especially Rishi, Lolo and Bebo are narcissists and arrogants people.

Hair styled, dressed well and the lady had style. She came across as a nice lady. May the family have strength to bear this loss. The other family members be it Raj Kapoor, his sons, grand son or Kareena, Karisma were and are all philanderers. They should have learnt at least from Mrs Krishna Raj to be dedicated to a single man and support the family
