Neetu Kapoor has shared that some people aren’t happy with the fact that she has moved on after her husband Rishi Kapoor’s death and is recovering well from the grief by using social media to showcase her life. The veteran actress revealed that some people have trolled her for posting on her Instagram after the demise of Rishi, who passed away two years ago. Neetu, who has started working on a number of projects, often gets comments telling her that she should be grieving instead.
Neetu told an online portal, “I do it just because I love it. I enjoy it. I love my followers. I just block the ones who troll me. I just block them. Because you know hote hain thode bahut beech mein ki 'husband mar gaya, ye enjoy kar rahi hai (there are some who say things like her husband is dead and she is enjoying).' They want to see that crying widow type. There's a section of people, but I just block them. I say this is the way I want to be, this is the way I will be."
She added, "This is the way I will heal. Some people cry and heal, some laugh and heal. I cannot forget my husband. He'll be here, with me, with my children all our lives. Even today when we meet for a meal, half of the time you're only discussing him, that is how we miss him. Ranbir still has his picture on his screensaver. That's the way we miss him, but we don't have to be sad to miss him. We can celebrate him. We can remember him for good times and what a great person he was."
Neetu has around 1.8 million followers on Instagram and often posts about her work, her children-Ranbir and Riddhima and late husband Rishi. Neetu and Rishi had gotten married in January 1980 and welcomed their first child, daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni in September that year, followed by Ranbir in September 1982. Rishi passed away on April 30, 2020 after a battle with cancer.
