Recalling the time when Rishi was in hospital, Neetu said the late actor called Ranbir and Alia “velle log” because they would spend all day in the ICU if he wasn’t feeling well. Neetu also praised her daughter-in-law Alia and called her sweet, according to an India Today report.
Neetu added that Rishi blesses her and that his hand is over her. “He will always be there. All the love I get from everyone and everyone around me is all his. He wants me to be happy. And that’s why I have this beautiful bahu rani, meri Alia. I couldn’t have asked for it before everyone better. She’s so sweet. It’s all his blessings. He wanted them to get married while he was in the hospital. He was like ‘ab kar lo yaar shaadi (marry each other now)’,” she said.
Neetu will soon be seen in JugJugg Jeeyo, marking her first full-fledged role in nine years. She was last seen on the big screen in Besharam, where Neetu was seen along with husband Rishi and son Ranbir.
