New Delhi: Veteran actress Neetu Kapoor shared fond memories of her sister-in-law Ritu Nanda, who died on Tuesday. Neetu shared a set of pictures of Ritu with Ranbir Kapoor (Rishi and Neetu Kapoor's son) and herself and wrote, "Lovely memories," adding a few heart emoticons.
In one of the photos, Ritu Nanda can be seen happily posing with Ranbir and in another one, she is seen posing with Neetu, her daughter Nitasha and sister Rima Jain.
