Since ac­tor Ran­bir

Kapoor’s (above, right) break up with ac­tor Ka­t­rina Kaif, there has been spec­u­la­tion about his re­la­tion­ship sta­tus. A cou­ple of days back, re­ports claimed that the ac­tor went to Lon­don with mom Neetu Kapoor to meet a prospec­tive match.

Re­cently, when we asked his un­cle, ac­tor Randhir Kapoor (above) about the spec­u­la­tion around his mar­riage, he said: “Ran­bir is hav­ing a ter­rific time with all the suc­cess and the money he’s got, and age be­ing in his favour too. Why does he have to get mar­ried and spoil it all so soon? Shaadi ke liye bahut time hai abhi usko. Let him have a nice time right now. How is his re­la­tion­ship sta­tus any­body’s con­cern or busi­ness any­way?”

Randhir shares a cor­dial bond with nephew Ran­bir and says “At times, I envy him be­cause I was nowhere at his age... the kind of suc­cess and moolah he’s got. He’s do­ing well and I’m so proud. Lit­tle ups and downs are there in ev­ery­one’s ca­reer, so that’s com­pletely al­right.” Ask him if he’s happy the way the younger Kapoors are tak­ing for­ward the fam­ily’s le­gacy, the 70-year-old sounds re­as­sured and points out, “My two daugh­ters [Karisma and Ka­reena] and [nephew] Ran­bir are suc­cess­ful.”

Do con­stant com­par­isons be­tween Ran­bir and his fa­ther and un­cles bother him? “It’s okay to com­pare and I don’t care, hon­estly. There’s so much tal­ent in the fam­ily that you’ll be left sur­prised ev­ery time. Our kids haven’t just sur­passed us, but they’re do­ing so well for them­selves.”

I envy Ran­bir for the kind of suc­cess he’s got. I was nowhere at his age. RANDHIR KAPOOR, AC­TOR
