Explanation on relationships: Babita’s reason for staying apart from Randhir Kapoor came, actor said- ‘He came to know that I am a bad guy who drinks a lot of alcohol’
Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor’s father Randhir Kapoor are in the discussion about their married life. Randhir married Bollywood actress Babita in 1971. After marriage, both did not exist and they started living separately. However, they never divorced and supported each other from the upbringing of children to playing every responsibility. An old interview of Randhir is going viral on social media in which he spoke openly on his relationship with Babita.
Babita did not like Randhir’s habits
In an interview to Hindustan Times 3 years ago, Randhir had said, he (Babita) came to know that I am a bad man who drinks heavily and comes home late, these were all things he did not like. I also did not want to live as she wanted and she did not want to confess to me as I was, even though we had a love marriage. We had two lovely children to look after. Babita raised her well and as children grew up, they established their careers in amazing ways. What else did I need as a father?
Randhir further said that Babita is an important part of his life. Both chose the ways to remain separate but they are not enemies of each other. Randhir and Babita are spotted simultaneously on all family functions such as weddings, family dinners etc. Randhir said that even though both of them live separately, this has not affected their relationship.
Why did not you divorce?
When Randhir was asked in the interview why he did not divorce Babita, he said, for what? Why do we divorce? I did not have to remarry nor did he. Randhir and Babita worked together in the 1971 film Kal Aaj Kal. After this, both were seen together in the 1972 film ‘Jeet’. After marriage, Babita left her acting career forever.
Kareena gave a reaction
Recently, in an interview to Hindustan Times, Kareena Kapoor also spoke openly about her parents being apart. He had said, ‘I and Karishma had understood at a very young age that relationships can be played in a good way even without living together. Our parents may not live together but whenever they have to be present somewhere, they become present. My parents share a lovely relationship, but when two people understand that they don’t plan like life many times, then there is no harm in staying separate.
