Ranbir Kapoor: Randhir Kapoor is suffering from dementia

Veteran actor Randhir Kapoor is suffering from dementia, his nephew and actor Ranbir Kapoor told.

“My uncle Randhir Kapoor, who is going through an early stage of dementia, came to me after the film and said, ‘Tell dad that he is amazing, and where is he, let’s call him’. Art crosses the boundaries of medical conditions… And a good piece of storytelling really embodies that,” Ranbir told NDTV. Ranbir said this about his father’s last film Sharmaji Namkeen, “The show must go on – you all have heard it but I have seen my father live that. After his demise, we thought the film wouldn’t get completed. We thought of trying VFX or I could wear prosthetics and complete the role but nothing was working out. It was a tough time for all of us. And that’s when Mr. Paresh Rawal stepped in. It was very generous of him to take up this challenge.”

Randhir Kapoor is the eldest son of Raj Kapoor, the legendary actor and filmmaker. Within a year, he lost both of his younger brothers, Rishi Kapoor (67) and Rajiv Kapoor (58). Rishi Kapoor died two years ago on April 30th, after a two-year battle with cancer, and Rajiv Kapoor died in February of last year from a heart attack. Raj Kapoor passed away in 1988, and his wife Krishna Raj Kapoor passed away in 2018.
