Neetu Singh turns 54
Do Kaliyaan, Rafoo Chakkar, Kabhie Kabhie…the actor has some classic movies to her credit
As a child actor, Neetu Singh started working at the age of eight. After being part of the industry for some time, she tied the knot with Rishi Kapoor in 1980 and decided to quit movies. Mrs Kapoor made a special appearance on the big screen after almost 26 years in Love Aaj Kal, after which she took up Do Dooni Chaar opposite her husband Rishi Kapoor. It was a simple film about a middle-class family and Rishi and Neetu looked supremely sweet together.And they have another pairing coming up in Yash Chopra’s next with Shahrukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.
Her superstar son Ranbir Kapoor has always maintained in his interviews that Neetu is a doting mom and that he has always been very attached to her. There was a time when Mrs Kapoor was the blue-eyed girl of Bollywood. And although she left her career mid-way to focus on her personal life, we are glad that she’s made a comeback of sorts. We would love to see the lady do more roles, ‘coz honestly, we loved her performances…
