Neetu Kapoor has spoken about her bond with daughter-in-law Alia Bhatt and how it's changed after her wedding to son Ranbir Kapoor. She added that problem arises when the son becomes 'joru ka gulaam (henpecked)'. She also called Ranbir a 'very intelligent man' who 'balances his love'.
In an interview, Neetu said, "People asked me how will be my relationship with Alia, and it will be the same as it was for me and my mother-in-law. Alia is a lovely person. She is a beautiful, simple, uncorrupted human being. So, I feel the relationship between a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law is the husband’s fault. Because you love your mother so much, and jab tum joru ka gulaam ban jaate ho na, fir maa ko problem hoti hai (when you become henpecked a mother has a problem). If you balance your love for your mother and your wife, it is always nicer. She will love you more. When you become too much of your wife, that’s when the mother feels… (Laughs).”
When asked if she felt like that with Ranbir, Neetu said, “I am not getting this feeling because my son is a very intelligent man, he balances his love. He doesn’t go all ‘mom mom mom,’ he may call me once in five days and ask, ‘aap thik ho na (are you okay)?’. For him to ask me this is enough.” Neetu was also asked if she gives any marital advice to Ranbir or Alia and responded that nowadays everyone 'sab seekh ke aate hai (learn everything and come)'. She also added that 'they’ll teach you, nobody listens to you' and 'it is better to stay away from advising'.
Ranbir and Alia tied the knot on April 14 in an intimate ceremony at their residence in Bandra.
