Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor’s love story

In so many interviews and media interactions, Anil Kapoor and his kids have agreed that Sunita Kapoor is their driving force. Time and again they all have mentioned how much they are dependent on her and that she means the world to them. Well, such is the relationship of a mother. They bind us together and shower immense love.

Moreover, when Sonam came on the sets of Koffee with Karan with her father Anil Kapoor she said something which caught everyone’s attention. Sonam revealed that her dad is smitten over her mother and there is a fairytale kind of love. She also mentioned that it’s Sunita who runs Anil Kapoor. How lovely it sounds. We would like to mention here, Anil Kapoor is one of those very few film actors who never ever fell prey of any rumors.



Anil Kapoor once shared his love story with Humans of Bombay and an excerpt from the story was shared by Sonam Kapoor. It read, “A friend of mine gave Sunita my number to prank call me–that’s when I first spoke to her & fell in love with her voice! Soon after, we met at a party–there was just something about her. We started talking & became friends. We used to discuss this other girl I liked-you know if I like her or she likes me? Then suddenly that girl vanished, leaving me heartbroken–our friendship strengthened because of that!

The story went ahead, “Little did I know that Sunita was the one all along–we started dating organically. It’s not like in the movies–I didn’t ask her to be my girlfriend–we both just knew. She was from a liberal family–a banker’s daughter with a modeling career & I was bekaar! She didn’t care who I was or what my profession is- none of it mattered! I lived in Chembur & she lived on Nepeansea road–it took me an hour to reach by bus. She would start screaming, ‘No come fast by cab!’ & I’d say ‘Arrey I don’t have money’ then she’d say ‘Just come na’ & pay for my cab! We dated for 10 years–we traveled and grew together. She was always clear that she won’t enter the kitchen. If I said ‘cook’ I’d get a kick!



I knew I needed to become something before asking her to marry me. I went through the struggle of not getting work, but she supported me unconditionally. So when I got my first break, ‘Meri Jung’ I thought, now the house will come, the kitchen will come, help will come… I can get married! So I called Sunita & said, ‘Let’s get married tomorrow–its tomorrow or never’ & the next day, we were married! I went for shoot 3 days later & madam went abroad on our honeymoon… without me!

Honestly, she knows me better than I know me. We’ve built our life; our home together. We’ve raised 3 kids & been through ups and downs. But I feel like we’re finally dating now–romantic walks & dinners have just begun! We’ve been together 45 years–45 years of friendship, love & companionship. They don’t make people like her anymore. She’s the perfect mother, also a perfect wife & the reason I wake up every morning, motivated. You know why? When I ask her, ‘Arrey, yesterday only gave you so much money’ she says, ‘Woh sab khatam ho gaya… it’s all finished!’ and I jump out of bed & run to work”


Sonam’s adorable wish for her mother!

Also, it was Sunita Kapoor’s birthday and Sonam Kapoor especially wrote a lovely message for her mother. Sonam shared a childhood picture and wrote, “There are no words for how much you mean to me. You have always been the ultimate role model, supporting me and helping me stand taller against whatever I may face in my life. It’s your strength and grace that keeps this family so happy and we all love you for it.
Happy Birthday, Mom!❤️❤️ #mom #mother
