He married Shukla and had a son Kumar Gaurav also an actor and two daughters. His son married Namrata Dutt, the daughter of actors Sunil Dutt and Nargis and sister of actor Sanjay Dutt.

Rajendra had acted with Sanjay’s father and mother Sunil Dutt and Nargis in the blockbuster film Mother India (1957) where both Sunil Dutt and Rajendra Kumar played natural sons of Nargis. He had a special relationship with Sunil Dutt, who is quoted as having said that “Even though Rajendra Kumar did not win any award through out his career, he was one of the most genuine human being I have ever encountered. When I was struggling with the troubles related to the arrest of my son Sanjay Dutt and my house was repeatedly being searched by means of numerous police raids, Rajendra Kumar was the one who came to my rescue by staying at my house and ensuring that raids were conducted using due procedures, false evidences were not planted in the house and valuables were not stolen”. He was a gentleman to the true sense of the word — very disciplined on the film sets and polite with his co-stars. Meena Kumari, the legendary actress paired with him in a number of films. Although, being a major star at the time, he would modestly address Meena Kumari as ‘Mem Sahab’. Rajendra Kumar lived his life astutely and conserved his resources very well and was known to be a rich person.
