Despite having a massive age gap, the duo enthralled the audience with their chemistry. And now, in a recent interview with Lehren Retro, Raveena shared that she had a massive crush on Rishi Kapoor. The diva revealed that as a child, she had attended Rishi and Neetu Singh’s wedding, and ended up sulking throughout the same. She mentioned:
“I was sulking because he got married. I had the biggest crush on him. Everytime he used to go abroad, he used to get me like a doll or something. And I was sulking throughout his wedding. The only consolation was that he got married to Neetu ji. It was the best thing. I love them as a couple. I used to adore both of them. When we finally did a film together, he laughed because I was forced to call him ‘Chintu ji.”

After the tragic demise of Rishi Kapoor in 2020, Raveena Tandon had once shared a priceless picture of herself with the late actor. Well, on what would have been Rishi and Neetu’s 41st wedding anniversary, Raveena had dropped a throwback picture from the wedding of the duo.

Along with it, she had penned a heartfelt caption where she revealed how Rishi had requested her for the picture so that he could add to his autobiography, Khullam Khulla. The caption could be read as:
“Found a gem. A tad too late though. Thank you @juuhithesoniibabbar for finding this pic. Chintu uncle kept asking me for this pic to put in his autobiography. And somehow I had lost the original. Found it .so that’s me standing with chintu uncle, at his wedding. Wish I'd gotten it a bit earlier. Nonetheless it is treasure for me. #treasuredmemories @neetu54."
