The ever young and radiant, Babita Kapoor celebrated her 74th birthday on April 20, 2021, and the whole Kapoor clan decked up for the grand celebration. Members of the Kapoor family were papped outside Kareena Kapoor Khan's house for Babita's birthday celebration. Earlier, Kareena and Karisma's father, Randhir Kapoor was spotted outside Kareena's home. Later we also saw Karisma with her kids, Kiaan and Samaira. What caught our attention was the unique birthday card that Kiaan made for his grandma. Scroll down to check it out!
For the uninitiated, Babita Kapoor was born to the actor, Hari Shivdasani and British-Christian, Barbara Shivdasani. She had made her debut in 1966 with the film, Dus Lakh. Babita and Randhir had kept their relationship a secret from their families, because of the Kapoor family's tradition, that he wasn’t allowed to marry an actress. But Randhir chose the filmiest way to introduce Babita to his grandfather, Prithviraj Kapoor and his father, Raj Kapoor and finally in 1971, the couple had tied the knot.
On April 20, 2021, Karisma Kapoor was papped outside Kareena Kapoor Khan's home for their mother, Babita's birthday, along with her son, Kiaan Raj Kapoor. The actress and her son were all geared up in face shields, face masks and gloves. Little Kiaan was seen holding a handmade birthday card for his grandma, which was a collage of some memorable pictures of Babita Kapoor with her daughters and grandkids. Check out the pictures below:
To wish her mom on her birthday, Kareena Kapoor Khan had posted two throwback pictures. The first picture was from Kareena and Saif Ali Khan's Fortune Heights residence, in which Bebo had posed with her sister, Karisma Kapoor and Babita. The second picture was a rare throwback one from Babita's acting days. Promising to trouble her mother forever, Kareena had written, "Happy Birthday to our strength, our world...my mother. Lolo and I will ofcourse trouble you forever, that’s what mothers are for." Karisma Kapoor had posted a video, comprising of cherishable memories with Babita and had captioned it as "Happy birthday to our mama. We love you more than any words can describe. Keep rocking!"
When Babita had turned 73 last year, Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan had posted throwback pictures from their archives. Kareena had posted an unseen picture of her parents, Randhir Kapoor and Babita. To wish her 'Queen', Kareena had written, "Happy Birthday Queen" followed by heart emoticons. In the picture, Randhir and Babita held each other's hands and it reminded us of their Kal Aaj Aur Kal days. Karisma had posted a throwback picture with Babita and Kareena from one of their vacations and captioned it as "Happy birthday mom. We are missing spending ur birthday with you..."
In an interview with Barkha Dutt, Kareena Kapoor Khan had opened up on her parents' divorce. She had revealed how her parents may not be living together anymore but they continue to share a good friendship and are often in touch. In her words, "Yes, my mother is my best friend but I adore my father because I respect and love him a lot. He is in a strange way not very in your face because he is somebody who's always also chosen to be at the back. He's not somebody who is commanding the attention and wants that. He's silently always there for us and I know it. I mean 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 you know we kind of don't stay together but we can still like you know be friends and stay in touch and still take decisions sometimes about the kids."
Belated happy birthday, Babita Kapoor!
