Kareena: “I now have another brother in the industry.”
The youngest Kapoor lad, Armaan Jain (he is Raj Kapoor’s daughter Reema Jain’s son) is making his Bollywood debut with Lekar Hum Deewana Dil.
Not surprisingly, almost the entire Kapoor clan turned up in support at the music launch of Armaan’s debut film. From matriarch Krishna Kapoor to the newcomer’s three maamas — Randhir, Rishi and Rajiv – to his aunt Neetu Singh to his mother Reema Kapoor-Jain to his cousin sisters Kareena and Karisma Kapoor, the clan closed ranks in support. Only cousin Ranbir was conspicuous by his absence because he was not in town.
Kareena and Karisma made up for it by lavishing affection and praise on their younger cousin brother. Kareena smiled, “I am very happy today to see that the Kapoor legacy is being taken forward by Armaan and that I now have another brother who is all set to step into the industry. It is a proud moment for us.”
Armaan performed on the song ‘Khalifa’ from the soundtrack of the film which has been composed by A R Rahman. After the performance, Armaan hugged his grandmother and said emotionally, “I miss my nanaji but I know he is present here. My nani doesn’t go for any event so I am really thankful to her and my entire family for coming to this event.”
