A host of Bollywood celebrities took to Instagram to wish producer and daughter of actor Anil Kapoor Rhea Kapoor on her birthday. She turned 34.

Rhea's aunt and star of Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Lives, Maheep Kapoor, also shared a number of throwback pictures to wish her niece.
Earlier in the day, Sonam Kapoor had post pictures with her sister and written how this was the first time she was away from her sister. She wrote: "Happy happy birthday to my soulmate/bestfriend/sister @rheakapoor , first birthday I’ve missed because of this ridiculous time. I love you so much and miss you more . No one comes close to your smarts, empathy and capacity for giving and love. To always being partners and sisters Even our phrasin’ Sounds like it’s coming from one, Nobody’s sweating, When we’re dueting, Cause we’re having such fun.”
Rhea's parents - Anil Kapoor and Sunita -wrote on Instagram about their daughter.
Rhea has now successfully produced three films - Aisha (2010), Khoobsurat (2014) and Veere Di Wedding (2018).
Kareena had once praised Rhea and said how the latter chose to wait rather than taken another actor, when Kareena had discovered she was pregnant with Taimur before the shooting of Veere Di Wedding could begin. She also said how there was used to be no concept of maternity insurance for women actors in India.
She had said in an interview with India Today: "I agreed to act in the film even when I was pregnant and they incorporated the whole pregnancy scene but... it was pretty sad. But I gave the producers a choice. I told Rhea about my pregnancy right after I told my parents. I told her 'go take some young girl now'.”
However, Rhea chose to wait it out and was firm on not finding a replacement. Kareena returned after childbirth and the film was a success.
