Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor love story: Best couple pictures, moments every fan must see
Today, late legendary actor Rishi Kapoor and his lovely wife, Neetu Kapoor would have completed 41 years of togetherness if he had been alive.
Rishi Kapoor wrote about his life in the book "Khullam Khulla: Rishi Kapoor Uncensored", and there he mentioned his relationship with Neetu Kapoor. On their special occasion, let's take a ride on their journey from being friends to lovers to husband and wife and grandparents.
Rishi Kapoor first met Neetu on Bobby's sets, but at that time, the actor was in a relationship with somebody else. Neetu became the love advisor of Rishi, and eventually, they became very close friends after they starred together in Puttanna Kanagal's Zehreela Insaan.
How did love come in between? Well, the Bachna Ae Haseeno actor went to Paris for shooting Barood, and there he realised that Neetu has immensely impacted his life with her presence. He telegrammed her a letter saying, "Yeh sikhni badi yaad aati hai."
Soon enough, they started dating, which continued for 5 years before tying the knot. But, Rishi never wanted to get married, he said, "I'll only date you, I'll never get married to you." But their family forced him, and they arranged an engagement ceremony without letting him know. Rishi mentioned, "I was caught off-guard when my parents and close friends got Neetu and me to sit in a mandap meant for somebody else's engagement and made us exchange rings."
Then, on January 22, 1980, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor got married. The actor confided, "Adjusting to married life was difficult for me to start with because I'd never been answerable to anybody before. But we have spent an incredible thirty-seven years together as husband and wife, and I feel blessed to have her in my life."
They have been together for 40 years, and they have two wonderful children, actor Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor and a granddaughter, Samara Sahni.
