It's a known fact that Kareena Kapoor Khan and Karisma Kapoor's parents, Randhir Kapoor and Babita, have been separated for more than 3 decades now. However, they have never decided to head for a divorce. Babita raised both her daughter Karisma and Kareena as a single mother. However, Kareena has said that her father Randhir Kapoor has always 'silently' been there for them.
"My mother is my best friend but I adore my father because I respect and love him a lot. He is not very in-your-face because he is someone who has always chosen to be at the back. He is not someone who is commanding the attention and wants that. He is silently always there for us and I know it,” Kareena Kapoor Khan said in an interview with Barkha Dutt.
Speaking about dealing with her parents' separation at an early age, Kareena said, "My parents have a lovely relationship because sometimes, two people realise that their lives aren’t exactly going the way they planned, so it’s better that they don’t stay together but they can still be friends and sometimes, take decisions about the kids. It’s not necessary that they have to be staying under the same roof or being there 24*7 together. I think both Karisma and I understood that at a very early age, that this kind of relationship can exist as well. It has existed for almost 35 years with my parents and I see that in times when they need to come together, they are always together, but they prefer to have their day-to-day lives separately, which is wonderful.”
During a media interaction at Babita's 70th birthday party in 2017, when Randhir Kapoor was asked why they didn't head for a divorce despite being separated for many years. The veteran actor had said, "Divorce for what? Why should we head for divorce? I don't intend to get married again, and nor does she. She found that I was a terrible man who drank a lot and came home late, which was something she didn't like. And I didn't want to live the way she wanted, and she couldn't accept me as I am, though it was a love marriage. So it's okay. We had two lovely children to look after. She brought them up in the best way and they have excelled in their career. What else I could have asked for as a father?"
