Meanwhile, actor Amitabh Bachchan penned a heartfelt note in memory of the Kapoor family matriarch.

"Jab pati ke ghar bahu ban kar jaana, toh yeh soch lena ki tum kainchi lekar jaana chahti ho ya buniya ki auzaar," ("When you go as a bride into your husbands home, you must decide whether you want to carry scissors with you or a pair of knitting needles!")

“Krishna aunty .. my mother and me will miss u always.. #KrishnaRajKapoor,” tweeted Khan.
