The sudden demise of Bollywood actor Rajiv Kapoor on June 9, 2021, shocked the industry and his fans alike. As the news spread, it was revealed that two of Rajiv Kapoor’s exes, Divya Rana and a Pune-based airhostess, rushed to his house upon hearing the tragic news, showing their deep affection for him even in death.
According to exclusive information, the airhostess was the first to arrive at Rajiv Kapoor’s home and was inconsolable, refusing to let him be taken away. Divya Rana, who co-starred with Rajiv Kapoor in their debut film ‘Ek Jaan Hain Hum’ (1983) and was said to be married in Dubai under the name Salma Manekia, also arrived shortly after and wept inconsolably. The Kapoor family was surprised to see the two ladies in question at the house during those traumatic hours.
Divya Rana and Rajiv Kapoor’s love story was well-known in the industry, as they fell passionately in love during the making of ‘Ek Jaan Hain Hum’. Despite working in other films like ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’, ‘Watan Ke Rakhwale’, ‘Ek Hi Maqsad’, and more, Divya Rana’s career in Bollywood did not soar to great heights. She was also cast in the unreleased film ’20 Rupees’ with Nana Patekar and worked in a Bengali film with Victor Banerjee. Her pairing with Mithun Chakraborty in films like ‘Maa Kasam’ and ‘Akhri Muqabla’ was appreciated, but she did not achieve much success in the industry.
In recent times, there have been reports of issues in Divya Rana’s marriage in Dubai, and it is hoped that the couple can resolve their differences. Rajiv Kapoor’s untimely death brought back memories of his past relationships, with both Divya Rana and the Pune-based airhostess showing their deep emotional attachment to the late actor, even in his final moments.
As Bollywood mourns the loss of Rajiv Kapoor, his exes’ presence at his house during his last moments highlights the enduring impact he had on their lives, leaving a poignant reminder of his legacy in the industry.
