Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor are getting married and their family couldn’t be more excited about it. Yesterday was the couple’s Mehandi ceremony and we saw the Kapoors all decked up for the event. Ranbir’s father Rishi Kapoor who left the world will definitely be sending his blessings to the couple. Neetu Kapoor is also missing him and found a very sweet way to keep him with her at the wedding.
Neetu flaunted the Mehendi she got on her hands a day after attending Ranbir and Alia’s Mehendi function. Her late husband’s name, Rishi, was also inscribed on the Mehendi.
On Thursday, the day of the wedding, Neetu posted a photo of her henna-decorated hands on her Instagram Stories. Rishi Kapoor’s name was visible on her index finger in the photograph.
Neetu and Rishi married in January 1980 and had their first child, daughter Riddhima Kapoor. They became parents for the second time in September 1982, when their son Ranbir Kapoor was born. Filmmaker Subash Ghai, recently revealed that Rishi Kapoor was planning a lavish wedding for Ranbir in December 2020. However, the actor died in April 2020 and plans didn’t work out.
On the morning of Alia and Ranbir’s Mehendi, Neetu remembered her late husband. She posted a throwback photo from their engagement day to Instagram, captioning it, “Fond memories of baisakhi day (heart eyes emoji) as we got engaged 43 years back on 13th April 1979.”
After avoiding questions about the wedding for several days, Neetu confirmed on Wednesday evening that Ranbir and Alia will marry on April 14 at Ranbir’s Bandra home Vastu. She also praised her future daughter-in-law, saying, “She is the best. God bless them, really.”

Ranbir and Alia began dating in 2017 while working on Ayan Mukerji’s film Brahmastra, which is set to be released in September of this year. During an interview with GQ in May 2018, Ranbir revealed that he was dating Alia. He later stated that they planned to marry in 2020, but the wedding was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
