Raza Murad says – “This is a major loss for me. We go back a long way, back when he used to be an assistant director. He used to work like any other assistant, doing daily chores. He had no pretences about him, despite coming from such a privileged family. This is what Raj saab taught all his children, that they should first learn to live ordinary lives, before thinking of becoming stars.”

Raza Murad further tells – “Yes. Definitely. You see, his films didn’t work. Prem Granth was a good film, but it didn’t work. His television series didn’t work. His marriage didn’t work. Destiny wasn’t on the side of Rajiv Kapoor. Worse actors than him have succeeded in this industry. I’ll say that there was loneliness, but never bitterness.”

Rajiv said that he was always compared to his uncle, Shammi Kapoor, because of their physical resemblance to each other, and that didn’t work in his favour. He told Cinestaan, “As far as my career is concerned, Ram Teri Ganga Maili is the best film I did. The other films didn’t do well, but not all were bad. The sad part was that everybody wanted to project me like Shammi Kapoor, because I looked like him.”
