While the third generation of Kapoors may show that family differences have been forgotten, we want to know whether they are really prepared to project a ‘We Are Family’ pose!
Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor and Randhir Kapoor may still conduct conversations over delicious Punjabi food and a good bottle of wine, but we have rarely – if ever – seen all the Kapoors together in the same frame. Remember a few years ago Raj Kapoor’s entire family came together for the cover shoot for an international magazine? But Randhir’s estranged wife Babita and her daughters were missing from the big family moment. It’s no hidden truth that Rishi-Randhir’s wives were never the sisterly bhabhis projected in desi dramas.
Recently though, Ranbir Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor exchanged a lot more than the usual pleasantries at an awards night function. We are jogging back our memories over the Kapoor row ‘coz cousins Bebo and Ranboo may star together in Zoya Akhtar’s film.
Obviously they are not being approached to play lovers. It’s a story about siblings. Yes, the Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara director is writing a script inspired by her relationship with real-life brother Farhan Akhtar. And Zoya wants real-life cousins KK and RK in her next project.
A few weeks ago, Kareena said that she was excited about the movie. She added, “I’m very keen that Zoya finishes her script soon. I’m constantly in touch with her. It’s a terrific project, and I am dying to work with Ranbir.”
Really, Bebo? Or is it one of those facades actors put up in filmdom? We’ll hold our excitement till we get an official confirmation from the director. In B-world you can’t take everything at face value!
