After this episode, Veena decided to bury the past behind and take another shot at her marriage and give her husband another chance.
Theirs was a perfect, dreamy and fairytale like lovestory that was inspirational and surreal, but not many know that this always-in-love Kapoor couple did hit a rough patch at one point. So much so, that continuing the relationship looked like a task.
The reason behind the troubled marriage was Rishi Kapoor’s drinking problem. Rishi Kapoor was equally in love with his whiskey as his wife and reportedly used to get violent after a few too many drinks.
Things were so bad that Neetu Singh was once on the verge of filing an official complaint against Rishi Kapoor. But the graceful lady decided to give another chance to Rishi Kapoor and that worked! Today, the couple is one of the happiest ones we see around in Bollywood.
