Celebrating Raj

She shared the images on her Instagram Stories and wrote, “15th of August. Your birthday Raji, we celebrated you. And the day you came into the world.”

Raj Kaushal

Raj was a filmmaker who directed several films including Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi and Shaadi Ke Laddoo. Following a heart attack, he died on June 30, 2021.

Raj and Mandira tied the knot in 1999 and welcomed their first child – son Vir – in 2011. In 2020, they adopted their second child, four-year-old daughter Tara.

On his first birth anniversary after his death, Mandira shared a picture with him and wrote on Instagram, “15th August: Was always a celebration. Independence Day and Rajs Birthday.. Happy Birthday Raji.. we miss you and hope that you are watching us and have our backs like you always did.. The gaping void will never be filled (heartbreak emoji) Here’s hoping you’re in a better place. (folded hands) Peaceful and surrounded by love.”
