Raj Kapoor's daughter Ritu Nanda breathed her last on January 14 and her ashes were immersed in Ganga river by her son Nikhil Nanda and Bachchan family. Abhishek Bachchan accompanied his niece Navya Naveli Nanda and Agastya to Haridwar. Amitabh Bachchan took to his Twitter handle to write that they are back in Mumbai after Ritu Nanda's 'chautha' and within moments "shall be the 18th of January - the death Anniversary of Babu ji." For those unaware, Big B was very close to his father who passed away in 2003 at the age of 96 after prolonged illness.

He wrote, "I still can't believe she is not with us anymore as I can feel her around. A woman of substance, a spirited and humble soul, she had only love and warmth to offer. She gave us the courage, made us dream, taught us to live with values and spread hope. She leaves behind millions touched lives and smiles."
Nikhil Nanda concluded by saying: "In my journey, she made me who I am. You meant the world to me, mom." Singer Pankaj Udhas expressed his condolences after reading Nikhil's tweet.
