When Kareena Kapoor Revealed Why Her Grandfather, Raj Kapoor Was Biased Towards Her Sister, Karisma

The Kapoor family is often termed as the 'First film family of India', courtesy of the fact that the five generations of 'The Kapoors' have been associated with the Hindi film industry. For the unversed, it all started with Basheshwarnath Kapoor, who did a cameo in his grandson, Raj Kapoor's film, Awara. It was Basheshwarnath's son, Prithviraj Kapoor, who is among the founding figures of Hindi cinema. The legendary actor gave birth to three sons, Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor, and Shashi Kapoor.

The three brothers not only ruled the Hindi film industry but are also one of the most successful actors in the history of Hindi cinema. While Shammi Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor ruled the silver screens with their acting skills, it was Raj Kapoor who also excelled as a filmmaker and producer. The next generation of stars from the Kapoor family, who made a name for themselves in the film industry, included Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, and Rajiv Kapoor.

It's fair to say that out of the three men, it was Rishi Kapoor, whose success was not a match for his brothers. Just when everyone thought that the benchmark set up by Rishi Kapoor would not be surpassed, his son, Ranbir Kapoor entered into the scene with his cousins, Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan, proving why their family is called the 'first family of the film industry'.

Sharing the reason behind it, Bebo revealed that Karisma had blue eyes, similar to their grandfather's. However, she had her father, Randhir Kapoor's green eyes. The actress further shared that Raj Kapoor used to give her one mango during the summer season, while he gave two mangoes to Karisma because he was biased towards her. She had said:

"My grandfather Raj Kapoor was biased towards Karisma because both of them had blue eyes. I have green eyes as that of my father. During summer seasons he would give two mangoes to Karisma and I would end up getting just one. I had to work hard to please him."
