Neetu Singh and Rishi Kapoor are a couple and their romance is evident in their on-screen chemistry. This is their eternal love story.
Rishi Kapoor broke a million hearts when he declared his love for actress Neetu Singh. The two set major couple goals with their adorable friendship.
How did it start?
Neetu started dating Rishi when she was 14 years old. He was already a well-known actor, but she was new to the industry. Their first film together was Zehreela Insaan (1974).
It wasn't love at first sight for this beautiful couple. Rishi is a prankster and often teases Neetu on the sets. However, Neetu falls in love with the man who annoys her the most.
Neetu's mother's reaction to their relationship
Neetu's mother Rajee is not happy with their relationship and she doesn't want any rumors to spread. So, whenever Rishi took Neetu out on a date, her mother would accompany them.

When Rishi proposed to Neetu, she was not very happy. As the sole breadwinner of the family, she did not want to leave her mother alone. So, Rishi invited Rajee to live with them after their marriage.
Rishi and Neetu get engaged
It was during a wedding in Rishi's family in Delhi that his family decided to announce their engagement. All this made Neetu nervous and Rishi gave her a glass of sparkling wine to calm her nerves.

A match made in heaven
The couple has emerged from all these controversies and supported each other through the highs and lows of life. Neetu and Rishi have resolved all their differences and emerged stronger.
