New Delhi, Feb 14 (ANI): How the beautiful, cute and fun-loving Jodi of Bollywood Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor got engaged is a story in itself.
92.7 BIG FM’S special Valentine’s episodic ‘Pyaar Ka Suhaana Safar – Ek duje k liye’is going to share the story of their teenage romance, which bloomed around 1975 and still stands rock solid.
The two fell in love with each other during the shoot of their movie ‘Zehreela Insaan,’ only realizing it much later when the ‘Bobby’ star went to Europe for another movie.
The long distance soon made the 63-year-old actor feel the absence of the bubbly 57-year-old actress, following which he sent her a telegram that read “Ye Sikhni badi yaad aati hai.”
Love blossomed and grew stronger between them without anyone’s knowledge and before anyone could know, they got engaged due to a sweet coincidence.
It was during the release of Rishi’s movie ‘Jhoota Kahin Ka’ that he got engaged to his love Neetu in Delhi. Rishi had checked in to a hotel in Delhi for a relative’s engagement with his family and it happened to be the same hotel, wherein Neetu was staying with her mother since few days.
Without even giving him a gist of what she was upto, Rishi’s sister Ritu, who knew about the budding relationship between the couple, went to meet Neetu and her mom and decided that they both get engaged.
Raj Kapoor with utmost respect went to Neetu’s mom with a marriage proposal of their children. While everything got finalized in a matter of second, the couple was set to get engaged but with one major problem. Ritu quickly addressed the issue and the couple finally got engaged.
It was indeed ‘Ek Mein Aur EK Tu, Dono Mile iss Tarah’ for one of the most iconic onscreen and off screen pairs. (ANI)
