Interestingly, the same story was narrated by Rishi Kapoor at an event. Sharing the video on Instagram, Neetu wrote, “Same story narrated by both of us on different occasions.” In the clip, Rishi said that the shoot for the song went on for four days and all those days, Neetu and Rishi refused to speak to each other but anyone who watches them on the screen will believe that they are so much in love with each other.
On the show, The Burning Train actor also spoke about how even during the shoot of the song “Parda Hai Parda” from Amar Akbar Anthony, Neetu and Rishi had fought and were not on speaking terms. She said when, by the end of the song, she had to give him a rose, she really wanted to hit him with the flower but the shot had to be romantic.
Neetu and Rishi Kapoor married in 1980 and have two children together — actor Ranbir Kapoor and jewellery designer Riddhima Kapoor Sahni. Rishi died in 2020 after a two-year battle with cancer.
On the work front, Neetu will be back on the silver screen with Jug Jugg Jeeyo, which also stars Varun Dhawan, Anil Kapoor, Kiara Advani, Prajakta Koli and Manish Paul.
