Her husband Rishi Kapoor has been a regular with Yash Raj Films. And he's made quite an impression playing middle aged characters with his performances in Fanaa and Hum Tum. But nobody was successful in getting Neetu Kapoor to move out of the house and enter the studios again.
Karan Johar had offered her the role of Preity Zinta's mother in Kal Ho Naa Ho, (eventually played by Jaya Bachchan) but Neetu Kapoor turned it down as she was busy shaping son Ranbir's career. Now with Ranbir's career having taken off in a big way, Neetu Kapoor has finally returned to films. But if you think she will be working with the Chopras or with Karan Johar you are wrong.
Neetu Kapoor and her husband Rishi Kapoor will be seen together in a film to be produced by Planman Motion Pictures. After several weeks of persuasion, Neetu agreed as she loved the story of the film. The film apparently is the story of two middle-aged couples. After Neetu Kapoor agreed to the project, the producers are desperately hunting for the second couple. But getting Neetu to sign on the dotted line was a major achievement for Planman Motion Pictures. Let's hope Neetu's comeback venture is a bigger hit than her son's debut film Saawariya.
