Bollywood, as we all know, is not a place where many relationships have thrived or survived. Many couples have broken up their years of marriage in this industry and one of the early names is that of Randhir Kapoor and Babita. The two separated on mutual decision and have been happily living their lives. Now, their daughter Kareena Kapoor Khan has opened up on the separation of her parents and how the two are managing the two daughters that they have together.
In an interview with Mojo Story, Kareena Kapoor opened up about how Randhir has always ‘silently’ been there for them. She also said that when he and Babita ‘need to come together, they are always together’. “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,” said Kareena.
She added, “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.”
