Neetu Kapoor says Ranbir Kapoor is “hands-on father” unlike Rishi Kapoor: “My husband was never very good with children”

Veteran actress Neetu Kapoor recently showered praise on her son Ranbir Kapoor’s parenting skills during an appearance on the Netflix comedy show The Great Indian Kapil Show, hosted by Kapil Sharma.  Neetu Kapoor, along with her children Ranbir and Riddhima Kapoor, were guests on the show’s premiere episode.

Neetu Kapoor highlighted the significant difference between Ranbir’s approach to fatherhood and that of his late father, Rishi Kapoor. His expressions are reserved for cinema. In real life, he doesn’t react that much to things,” she said. “For the first time, when Raha enters, you should see his face. It’s full of expression. He gets very excited. He is the best father. Alia (Bhatt) is a good mother,” she further added. 

As Neetu continued, she asserted, “She is outstanding but he is a hands-on father. I have seen many fathers but I have seen none like him. He is the opposite of his father (Rishi Kapoor). My husband was never very good with children.”

Ranbir Kapoor married actress Alia Bhatt in April 2022, and their daughter Raha was born in November of the same year. Neetu Kapoor also spoke about the positive transformation she’s witnessed in Ranbir since becoming a father. “He’s become much more caring,” she remarked. Riddhima Kapoor echoed this sentiment, calling Ranbir “a lovely and amazing father.”

While discussing his bond with Raha, Ranbir Kapoor himself admitted, “I don’t feel like doing anything else. I don’t want to film, I don’t want to leave the house. All I want to do is sit at home and look at her. This is a feeling I’ve never experienced before.  Now I understand how Mom must have felt about me and Riddhima.”

On the professional front, Ranbir Kapoor’s latest film, the commercially successful Animal, featured an ensemble cast including Bobby Deol, Rashmika Mandanna, Triptii Dimri, and Anil Kapoor. He has several upcoming projects lined up, including Animal Park, Ramayan, and Love And War.
