Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh's love story
It was Rishi who made the first move towards Neetu. They had a really interesting love story at that time.
In an earlier interview, the late actor had revealed how he fell for Neetu, and how she also reciprocated. He had said, "I remember I had an argument with my girlfriend at the time and I was very heartbroken. Trying to win her back, I had taken Neetu's help in writing telegrams to my girlfriend while the two of us were shooting for Zehreela Insaan'."
"As time passed, I began to realise that Neetu is the one for me as I began to miss her when I had gone to Europe for a shoot. Ironically, I sent her a telegram from Europe to Kashmir saying that I was thinking of her," Rishi Kapoor was quoted as saying by India Times.
Neetu though, in one of her interviews revealed how the pair got off to the worst start possible. She revealed that she didn't have a good first impression of her future hubby.
"I had a horrible first meeting with Rishi Kapoor. He had a habit of bullying, so he would comment on my make-up and clothes, and I'd feel so angry," said Neetu Singh.
She further continued, "He was actually a brat who would bully everyone and I was very young at that time. I used to be furious with him."
