Neetu and Rishi Kapoor have been happily married for 30 plus years and they have been giving us the cutest relationship goals. But what we didn’t know was that they didn’t have a great first meeting. In fact, it was extremely ‘horrible’ as Neetu Kapoor recalls.

The actress also spoke of how the two, who starred in many hits including ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Khel Khel Mein’ and ‘Kabhie Kabhie’, became a hit on-screen couple.

Neetu shared nostalgic life-bits while chatting with actor Annu Kapoor on his radio show ‘Suhaana Safar with Annu Kapoor’. She shared, “I had a horrible first meeting with Rishi Kapoor. He had a habit of bullying, so he would comment on my make-up and clothes, and I’d feel so angry. He was actually a brat who would bully everyone and I was very young at that time. I used to be furious with him.

She also shared how the both of them were stuck with each other. “After ‘Bobby’ became a superhit, Dimple got married and Rishi was left with no other Heroine because everyone used to look older than him. I was the only young actress around and by default, after ‘Rickshawala’, all his movies started coming to me,” she said.

However, Neetu was at the top of her career and she was signing multiple movies at the time. “I was very young, and I had never really been on a date before. This went on for three years, after which I signed ‘Naseeb’, ‘Shaan’ and another four or five big-budget movies. Then Rishiji asked, ‘You are signing so many movies, don’t you want to get married?’ He was thinking about it, I had no idea.

She continued, “He had never said that he wants to get married. We were just dating. So I said, ‘There has to be a boy to get married to’. Rishiji said, ‘So who am I?

Talking about their marriage, she said, “I returned the signing amounts of all the movies I had signed, and then gave notice to everyone asking them to finish all pending movies. I had worked so hard in that one year (to complete all projects before marriage), you can’t even imagine.”

And then my husband told me to finish everything, so we could eventually start a family. It wasn’t that women couldn’t work (after marriage) but I was tired working for 15 years continuously. I wanted a simple life,” she added.
