Recalling the time when Rishi was in the hospital, Neetu said the late actor called Ranbir and Alia ‘velle log’, because they would sit in the ICU for the entire day when he was unwell. Neetu also praised her daughter-in-law Alia, calling her lovely, as per an India Today report.
Neetu added that Rishi is blessing her, and has his hand is over her. “He will always be there. All the love that I am getting from everyone and everybody around me is all him. He wants me to be happy. And that’s why I got this beautiful bahu rani, meri Alia. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. She is so lovely. It is all his blessings. He wanted them to get married when he was in the hospital. He was like ‘ab kar lo yaar shaadi (please marry each other now)’,” she said.
Neetu will soon be seen in JugJugg Jeeyo, which marks her first full-fledged role in nine years. She was last seen on the big screen in Besharam, which featured Neetu alongside husband Rishi and son Ranbir.
