Sunita Kapoor Went For Her Honeymoon Alone; Anil Shares His Heartwarming Love Story!

One of Bollywood's most celebrated families, the Kapoors have given us not only precious moments to cherish on-screen but also something to admire off it. We have witnessed great romances flourishing within the family from Boney Kapoor and Sridevi to Sonam and Anand. But our favourite epic pyaar is that of Anil and Sunita Kapoor who have been together for forty-five years and given the world three uber-talented kids.


Anil Kapoor shared his love story with Humans Of Bombay and my God, it’s one of those tales fit for a romantic novel. You guys won’t believe it, but it was actually “the other woman” who helped these two hit it off. They dated for ten years and she was a banker’s daughter living in a posh colony while he was a struggling nobody. He knew he had to make something of himself before he could marry her.





Talking about their life and growth together, the Dil Dhadakne Do actor said, "A friend of mine gave Sunita my number to prank call me – that’s when I first spoke to her and fell in love with her voice! A few weeks later, we met at a party and I was introduced to her...there was something about her that just attracted me. We started talking and became friends. We used to discuss this other girl I liked – you know, if I like her or she likes me? And then suddenly, that girl vanished, leaving me heartbroken. So my friendship with Sunita became stronger because of a broken heart!



Little did I know that Sunita was the one all along – we organically started dating. It’s not like in the films – I didn’t ask her to be my girlfriend...we both just knew. She didn’t care who I was or what my profession is...it never mattered.


She was from a liberal family––a banker’s daughter with a happening modelling career and I was totally bekaar! I lived in Chembur and she lived on Nepeansea road, so I would call her and say ‘I’ll take the bus and reach in an hour.’ She would scream, ‘No come fast by taxi!’ then I’d say ‘Arrey I don’t have money’ and she’d say ‘Just come na, I’ll manage’ and pay for my cab! 



We dated for 10 years – we travelled and grew together. She was clear from the start that she won’t enter the kitchen and cook. If I said ‘cook’ I’d get a kick! So in my mind I knew, I needed to become something before asking her to marry me. I went through my share of struggles of not getting work...but there wasn’t any pressure from her side...the support was unconditional."

And then when Kapoor got his first break he knew this was it. He was a step closer to achieving his dream and had the love of his life by his side. He went on to say, "So when I did get my first breakthrough, ‘Meri Jung’ I thought now house will come, kitchen will come, help will come...I can get married! So I called Sunita and said, ‘Let’s get married tomorrow – it’s tomorrow or never’ and the next day, in the presence of about 10 people we were married!


I went for my shoot 3 days later and madam travelled abroad on our honeymoon...without me!


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


Yes, she actually went on her honeymoon alone, cause why the hell not?! Girls, hubby is too busy at work, just take off on your own!

How sweet are these two?! In a world where love is fragile and commitments don't last (especially in the entertainment world), it's beyond beautiful that a true bond can't be broken and sticks the test of time. Jhakaaaasss!
