Ritu Nanda, the sister of Rishi, Randhir, Rajiv and Rima Kapoor, was married to industrialist Rajan Nanda. They have a daughter, Nitasha, and a son, Nikhil, who married Amitabh Bachchan's daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda in 1997. Ritu Nanda was the grandmother of Shweta and Nikhil's children Navya Naveli and Agastya.

Rishi Kapoor's wife Neetu Kapoor remembered her sister-in-law in an Instagram post, saying: "My dearest, may your soul rest in peace." Neetu and Rishi Kapoor's daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni mourned Ritu Nanda with these words: "To the kindest most gentle person I've ever met - They don't make them like you anymore - RIP bua." Ritu Nanda often featured in pictures from the Kapoors' family get-togethers.
