Randhir Kapoor’s birthday is a family affair

“Hum jab honge saath saal ke, aur tum hogi pachpan ki…Bolo preet nibhaaogi na, tab bhi apne bachpan ki?”

Thus went the lyrics of the song from the Randhir Kapoor-directed film Kal Aaj Aur Kal in 1971, starring Randhir and Babita Kapoor. Randhir went on to marry Babita and had two daughters Karisma and Kareena Kapoor.

The couple had been estranged long ago, but then they have been back together. As Randhir turned a year older on Thursday, Babita fed her husband a piece of the cake,  which was gifted to the grandfather by his grandsons Taimur Ali Khan and Kiaan Raj Kapoor, and granddaughter Samaira Kapoor. “Happy Birthday Nana, We Love You,” was a sign planted on the cake. It did seem like a very happy family picture when Karisma Kapoor posted the picture on her Instagram account. The party took place at Randhir’s house.

“Kareena came in alone as Saif Ali Khan was away and Taimur was not seen with her. Karisma came in with her children Samaira and Kiaan,” says an eyewitness.

Saif is away at a shoot at the moment. In 2017, when Randhir celebrated a momentous 70th birthday, it was a big affair with other Bollywood stars in attendance at a party hosted by the daughters.
