Shah Rukh Khan’s Emotional Message On Fauji Director Raj Kumar Kapoor’s Demise: “We’ll Miss You”
This morning, we brought you the sad news of Raj Kumar Kapoor, director of the popular series Fauji breathing his last on Wednesday in Delhi. He was 87. The news was confirmed by his daughter Ritambhara. She told IANS, “My father died at 10.10 p.m. yesterday (this was written on Thursday). He was in a hospital for sometime, but his death was very sudden. He was otherwise in good health... He went quite peacefully."

Now, superstar Shah Rukh Khan who started his career with the show, shared a picture with the man on social media. SRK penned a heartfelt note about him which read, “He loved me so much. Encouraged me. And today if I am used to being mollycoddled on sets it’s because of this man who made a ‘Fauji’ out of a boy, like his own. Will miss you Sir...always. May u find peace in ur new mission.”


Noted filmmaker Shekhar Kapur too tweeted about an incident when he had called SRK to his house, “Yes, I remember well the day the ‘Colonel’ brought you to my house during Faujj. ‘Watch this young man’ He said. And he was so right. What a wonderful compassionate man @iamsrk,” his tweet read.


Re-tweeting on Kapur’s tweet, Shah Rukh Khan replied, “And he was so jovial. Somehow in the midst of all stresses he had a way that could make u smile away ur troubles. One of those people u assumed will never leave your side cos he was so full of life .”


Fauji's first episode aired in 1988. The show was about commandos joining the army training school.
