It was in 2006 when Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor's daughter, Riddhima Kapoor tied the knot with her 'best friend', a Delhi-based industrialist, Bharat Sahni. Five years later, in 2011, Riddhima and Bharat embraced a new chapter of their lives, i.e., parenthood, with the arrival of an angel, whom they have named Samara Sahni. Since then, Samara is not just the heartbeat of her parents, Riddhima and Bharat but the entire Kapoor and Sahni families, especially her nana, late Rishi Kapoor, nani, Neetu Kapoor and mama, Ranbir Kapoor. With kind-heartedness like her grandparents, on-point style game like her mommy, simplicity like her father and cuteness at par with her mama; Samara is a lovely tweenager!
Ever since the demise of Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni and Bharat Sahni often take to their social media handles to post some cherishable memories with the late actor. In May 2020, Bharat posted pictures from New Year Eve 2010, which had given a glimpse of a pregnant Riddhima, an all-smiling Rishi Kapoor, the ever-graceful Neetu Kapoor and the dapper him. The pictures were taken when Riddhima was in her final trimester. Bharat had captioned the pictures as "Beautiful memories #2010 #newyearseve Just before Samara was born!"
Riddhima Kapoor Sahni is an ardent Instagram user and her little one, Samara Sahni is a social media sensation. When this little social media sensation and her Rockstar mamu, Ranbir Kapoor come together in one frame, it is ought to make you say 'awww'! Riddhima posted a throwback picture of Ranbir with his newborn niece, Samara, as he dearly held the little one in his arms and cuddled her with love. She captioned the adorable picture as "Both cuties." And we couldn't agree more with Riddhima!
In Riddhima Kapoor Sahni's words, Samara Sahni has Ranbir Kapoor 'wrapped around her little finger' and though 'girls chase Ranbir he runs after Samara'. Just like Ranbir adores his little niece, Samara, his ladylove, Alia Bhatt is also in awe of the princess of Kapoor khandaan. To mark Samara's tenth birthday in March 2021, Neetu Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Alia had posted the same picture of the little one with the messages, "Happy birthday my precious doll! Love you too much. Wish I could be there with you today!", "Happy Birthday dear Samara!" and "Happy birthday my cutie patootie!!! Sams a big girl now" on their IG stories respectively.
Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had posted an array of pictures, comprising of some beautiful and cherishable moments of her daughter, Samara with her and the Kapoor clan. To wish her 'precious' and 'the most beautiful girl', Samara, Riddhima had poured her heart out in the caption and her note could be read as "To my most precious! To the most beautiful girl - You have grown up so fine & you make me proud everyday! I love you my Sam. May your birthday sparkle just as much as you do! Happiest birthday my princess #samaraturns10." Here're a few pictures from the lot:
In a 2017 interview with Indusparent, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had spoken about how her equation with her mother, Neetu Kapoor changed after the arrival of her daughter, Samara Sahni. Revealing how her life turned upside down, Riddhima had said, "I feel more connected to my mother now that I am one myself. Now I know my mother was right about everything. That time you think she’s not right, you're rebel, but she was so right. We are certainly closer as friends and now we handle Samara together, because she's quite naughty. My life changed after Samara was born. It was completely upside down, but a lovely journey, beautiful journey, and I’ve enjoyed having her. She’s growing up very quickly, but she’s just a joy. It’s so lovely to see your child grow in front of you and so beautifully."
Isn't it an adorable picture of Ranbir with Samara?
