On Her 64th Birthday, 11 Neetu Singh Movies For Your Weekend Binge!

Neetu Singh movies. There was always a certain joy that Neetu Kapoor brought to her performances. Today, on her birthday, here's our list.

“Fighting fyt” reads Neetu Kapoor’s instagram bio, and rightly so for no other words can define this legendary actress better.

A bubbly performer, a dedicated loving wife and mother and a towering family woman, Neetu Kapoor has played many roles in her life with grace, dignity with that quintessential bright smile on her face.

A child actress who went on to become a charming leading lady, she was known throughout her career till she got married to Rishi, as Neetu Singh. Fans from that era still search for her movies as Neetu Singh movies.

Neetu Singh was the perfect girl next door in our movies, with her cheerful, bubbly demeanour. She is warm, relatable and has portrayed a wide acting range when given a chance beyond cute arm candy roles.

A woman with her own mind and identity, she chose to walk away from an illustrious movie career after marriage to dedicate herself to her family. She maintained her own identity despite being married into a family of the biggest superstars of India.

Neetu Singh movies, especially with her late husband Rishi Kapoor, invoke nostalgia and fondness for days gone by in so many of her fans. Though she was paired opposite her then boyfriend Rishi Kapoor in many movies in which they displayed an extraordinary chemistry, there are many Neetu Singh movies in which her male co-star has been someone else.

During her husband’s long illness she personified grace under fire and remains a solid, reliable port in the storm for her family members. Despite losing Rishi Kapoor to cancer, her partner of forty years, Neetu maintains her joie de vivre and is an inspiration to us all on how to deal with life, family and grief.

Today, Neetu Kapoor is not only a movie star but also a phoenix-like personality who has always risen to the occasion and transformed herself time and again to meet the challenges in her life head on. She is an inspiration to women on how to stay young at heart and embrace life fully and on your own terms.
