Before moving further, let's have a glimpse on Shakti Kapoor's love life on his birthday. Shakti Kapoor and Shivangi Kohlapure (sister of the famous actress, Padmini Kolhapure) had eloped to marry in the year 1982. It was love at first sight for Shivangi when she had first seen Shakti Kapoor. However, she came from a conservative family, and it was tough for her to carry on the relationship, so the duo had then decided upon a runaway marriage and had gotten married on December 13, 1982.
Shraddha Kapoor took to her IG handle on September 3, 2020, and shared a throwback picture of her 'baapu', Shakti Kapoor and wished him in the quirkiest way possible. Her birthday wish can be read as "Birthday Baapu! @shaktikapoor. Happy birthday to my precious Baapu! Thank you for being my Superhero and the best father in the universe."
Shraddha Kapoor's brother, Siddhant Kapoor also shared an unseen, childhood picture of him with his dad, Shakti Kapoor and wrote in the caption, "Happy Birthday POP! I love you! Thank you for everything."
On her parents, Shakti Kapoor and Shivangi Kolhapure's 38th marriage anniversary on December 13, 2019, Shraddha Kapoor had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared a rare picture of the adorable couple. Along with it, she had written, "Happy anniversary mommy and baapu! Love you both more than words can ever express. Thank you for loving me unconditionally and making me the person that I am today."

Once in an interview with The Times of India, Shraddha Kapoor had shared that her mother thinks that she is the lucky mascot for her father's career in Bollywood. She had said, "My dad was already doing well when I was born, but my mom tells me I was the lucky mascot in his life and that after I was born, he did even better. I was lucky to have affluent parents. I am spoilt in the sense that my father has given me an expensive car even though I would have liked to have bought my own car. My dad wants to constantly pamper me and I have a constant friction with my parents on that, as I like to make it on my own. My dad is protective at a personal level, but professionally he gives me all the space. Now with my third film, they let me be a bit on my own. He is jovial and is good to hang out with and exuberates positive energy. He doesn't listen to me, even though I keep telling him things like his mom."
Talking about Shraddha Kapoor's love life, she has been rumoured to be dating celebrity photographer, Rohan Shrestha for a quite some time now. Every now and then, speculations about their marriage hit the gossip columns. Shakti Kapoor had a hilarious response to his daughter, Shraddha Kapoor's wedding rumours. In a conversation with IANS, he had said, "Really? My daughter is getting married? Please don't forget to invite me too, to the wedding! Let me know where the wedding is, I will be there. I am the father and yet I have no clue. So, please let me know." (Don't Miss: Dilip Kumar's Brother, Ehsan Khan Dies Within A Month After Younger Brother, Aslam Khan's Demise)
