Five Generations of a family in the Hindi Film Industry can be none other than the Kapoors. And Karan Johar ropes in the Kapoor Khandan for his show Koffee With Karan this Sunday. Children of the legendary Showman of Bollywood, Raj Kapoor: Randhir, Rishi and Rajiv, sister Reema and Neetu Singh come together to give us a Roller Coaster ride. Excerpt from the interview:
You have a special relation with each and every one of them!
Neetu: Everyone. Especially Chimpu and Reema are my best friends… and Dabboo of course… I’ve worked with him in so many films.
Randhir: She’s my favorite heroine.
Rishi: Her first leading role as a heroine was with Dabboo.
Neetu: Yeah! Rickshawalla.
But of course your more special bond has been with your husband. It’s been 27 years now.
Rishi: We were in 11 films together.
Is there any particular moment you can think back to about just spending time with family. Anything that has moved you. Just left an indelible mark?
Neetu: I think we’re all very bonded Karan! We meet for lunches and for dinners and we don’t need outsiders because we’re self-sufficient and so happy with each other.
Randhir: At breakfast, we discuss lunch… at lunch we discuss what we’re having for dinner. That’s a typical Kapoor trait.
Neetu: We talk about food… and with so much of passion….
How come you don’t look anything like them Neetuji?
Rishi: I deprive her! I don’t give her anything to eat!
Neetu: And he says you sleep on a bed of nails. I enjoy doing this.
Rishi: She’s very disciplined.
Neetu: And that’s why my kids are disciplined and he’s also disciplined.
Randhir: Ya sure!
Neetu: Atleast now he takes care of what he’s eating.
Rishi: This is all puppy fat yaar!
You won’t have it any other way? This is a special family to be a part of.
Neetu: Absolutely! Each and every one of them and the head is the Mother-in-law. She is wonderful and all the humor comes from her.
Really? That’s something everybody doesn’t know…
Neetu: She’s the funniest. With a straight face she can just make you crazy.
I’m so much younger than you’ll but just want to say “God bless you all”
Only Karan can pull the oldest powerful family on to a show. And before Karan winds up with the season her invites TV tycoon Ekta Kapoor with three of her favourite blue-eyed boys from Balajee telefilms, namely Ronit Roy, Hiten Tejwani and Ram Kapoor, Karan’s favorite Madhuri Dixit and Rani Along with her as Rani is a huge fan of Madhuri and finally Shilpa Shetty, Shamita Shetty and their mother. With that Karan Johar winds up the show and is highly unlikely that he will another season as he is now associated with NDTV for an entertainment channel.
