- Neetu Kapoor lauded her daughter-in-law Alia Bhatt and her son Ranbir Kapoor. Speaking about life after a son's wedding, the actor said that problem starts, when the son becomes 'joru ka gulaam (henpecked)'
Actor Neetu Kapoor has heaped praises on her daughter-in-law, actor Alia Bhatt, who recently tied the knot with her son, actor Ranbir Kapoor. In a new interview, Neetu said that the relationship between a daughter-in-law and her mother-in-law 'is the husband’s fault'. She added that problem arises when the son becomes 'joru ka gulaam (henpecked)'. She also called Ranbir a 'very intelligent man' who 'balances his love'.

Neetu got married to actor Rishi Kapoor in 1980. They became parents to two children – Riddhima Kapoor Sahni and actor Ranbir Kapoor. In April this year, Alia married Ranbir at his Mumbai home Vastu. The festivities were attended by close friends and family members.
In an interview with Indian Express, Neetu said, "People asked me how will be my relationship with Alia, and it will be the same as it was for me and my mother-in-law. Alia is a lovely person. She is a beautiful, simple, uncorrupted human being. So, I feel the relationship between a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law is the husband’s fault. Because you love your mother so much, and jab tum joru ka gulaam ban jaate ho na, fir maa ko problem hoti hai (when you become henpecked a mother has a problem). If you balance your love for your mother and your wife, it is always nicer. She will love you more. When you become too much of your wife, that’s when the mother feels… (Laughs).”
When asked if she felt like that with Ranbir, Neetu said, “I am not getting this feeling because my son is a very intelligent man, he balances his love. He doesn’t go all ‘mom mom mom,’ he may call me once in five days and ask, ‘aap thik ho na (are you okay)?’. For him to ask me this is enough.” Neetu was also asked if she gives any marital advice to Ranbir or Alia and responded that nowadays everyone 'sab seekh ke aate hai (learn everything and come)'. She also added that 'they’ll teach you, nobody listens to you' and 'it is better to stay away from advising'.
Meanwhile, Neetu will be seen next in JugJugg Jeeyo alongside Anil Kapoor, Kiara Advani, Varun Dhawan, Prajakta Koli and Maniesh Paul. Backed by Dharma Productions, the comedy-drama is directed by Raj Mehta.
