Talking about Randhir Kapoor, the veteran actor lost his brother Rishi Kapoor in April last year after a two-year battle with cancer. The actor then lost his other brother Rajiv Kapoor in February this year after a heart attack. According to a news report in The Indian Express, the Jawani Diwani actor had recalled his losses and had called 2020 the worst year of his life. He had said, "The last year has been a very sad time in my life. 'Sad' is really a modest word here; 'worst' would be apt. In a matter of 10 months, I lost both my darling brothers- Chintu (Rishi Kapoor) and Chimpoo (Rajiv Kapoor). Also, I lost my mother (Krishna Kapoor) and sister (Ritu Nanda) in the last two-and-a-half years. We-my three brothers and two sisters-were extremely close to each other."
