Actor Neetu Kapoor has often spoken about her children Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor Sahani. Recently, she opened up on her bond with the two during a conversation with Filmfare. With Ranbir, Neetu said that she shares a special relationship, which also includes the two talking everything about movies. Admitting herself to be a movie buff, Neetu said, “We always discussed movies. Since the beginning, we shared such a relationship. Now, I also discuss the scripts that come to me. Any films offered to me, I discuss with him.”
She also revisited the time when Ranbir took her out on a lunch with the money he saved up. “I remember a nice incident of Ranbir from a Mother’s Day gone by. He had just started earning, I think she was an assistant director in Black then and he had made some money and it was Mother’s Day and he took me to a restaurant called Just Eat Around the Corner. It served lunches for Rs 100 or so and we had to fill the whole plate at one go. So that was my best Mother’s Day as we stood in a line with a plate and I saw everyone was piling up their plate with food as you could go only once to fill the plate. And I was the proudest mother that day, as that was the first ever lunch my son had taken me out for.”
Talking about their personalities, Neetu said, “Riddhima is more like a hands-on daughter. She goes crazy even if I cough. She will make sure to send me messages and send me Indian nuskas. Ranbir is more on the quieter side. He will just ask me,” adding that she was an obsessed mother who forgot the world in the first 10 years of embracing motherhood.
She also spoke about how Rishi Kapoor wanted them to have a normal upbringing. “When Ranbir was assisting in Black, Rishi told him to go by an auto or a bus… And Ranbir poor thing, he was so tall and he had to go to America on these long flights and he had to go in economy, he used to say mom, my legs get numb, I get jammed. The only thing I used to make sure then was to give him an aisle seat. So at least he can stretch his legs. I think these things are important. I would give the credit of this to my husband, because I used to spoil them.”
Riddhima had on Sunday morning shared a heartwarming post for Neetu Kapoor on the occasion of Mother’s Day.
