#राजीवकपूर के निधन का सुनकर बहुत दुख हुआ।उनके निर्देशन में बनी फ़िल्म ‘प्रेम ग्रंथ’ में काम किया था।वो एक गुणी डायरेक्टर थे।उनके व्यक्तित्व को क़रीब से जानने का मौका भी मिला।एक ज़िंदादिल और ख़ुशमिज़ाज इंसान थे! प्रभु उनके परिवार वालों को इस दुख से जूझने की ताक़त दे! #OmShanti 🙏 pic.twitter.com/y0OTu834A3
