^^^Thats true...but Katrina has enough starpower of her own plus shrewdness to milk it. Plus she will always be an invitee to parties thrown like the likes of KJo et al thanks to Ranbir and Kapoor association. Parties means networking and more work/endorsements.

I have probably watched /read too whodunnits,and tend to believe that such people just disappear into the night with the loot.

My guess is she is biding her time..



Yea no kidding. Does anyone know the real truth about her backstory?


Could be that she is just bidding her time. But yea she has enough money and star power now to be able to sustain an independent comfortable life in India. But if she's always identified with being British then that's that.

One of the reasons I don't think Alia's "I will marry Ranbir" is anything more than a joke is sort of what you said about Bollywood being insular. I agree with you to a large extent. However, I think Alia has enough of that Bhatt nonconformist pretentiousness in her to actually not give two hoots about the Kapoor tag.

And even Sonam or a lot of the inside or outside girls are far too ambitious in their careers to want to become this generation's Babita or Neetu Singh. Which is why I agree with whomever a few pages ago was wondering why would Katrina care about the Kapoor tag? I mean seriously. The RK banner is not what used to be. Has it even had any releases in recent years? Are the Kapoors anything more than just symbolic old money status?

Alia's too young to be thinking of marrying anyone right now - so yes she's clearly facetious. Her sister married a relatively non-entity in Bollywood who's a VJ turned restaurant owner so if that's anything to go by then Alia shouldn't care about the Kapoor tag as you say. 

I can't imagine Sonam wanting to sign up for Neetu Singh's life. Her mother was one of the lucky ones who had a relatively stable and hassle free marriage with an actor. Sonam knows that's the exception rather than the norm in film families - which is why she's mostly stayed away from dating actors and has said on a couple of occasions that she wouldn't marry an industry guy. 

The RK banner has been dead for a while. The last film they produced was Aa Ab Laut Chalen which was a box office dud. I imagine they make money by renting the premises to other production companies but I haven't really seen them being mentioned as a major shoot location or technical studio anywhere. They haven't really kept up with the times. 

The most wealthy and successful among the extended family in Ranbir's generation is actually Nikhil Nanda (he manages the Escorts fortune). For the longest time it was Karisma and Kareena who kept the family in the news otherwise they would have totally faded away like the progeny of other formerly successful filmy families. 

In contemporary Bollywood in purely power and financial terms the Kapoor name really means very little.

Anushka too? When did she and Pichkari have a scene? See, I can get why Alia and Sonam would be so overawed - the filmi world tends to be insular and I guess the Kapoor name is as good as it gets in Bollyland. 

But for girls who grew up outside the industry like DP and Anushka, they should know that in the grand scheme of things the present generation of Kapoors are insignificant - in wealth, prestige or influence. There are so many other succesful wealthy men who wouldn't have the same baggage that comes with Pichkari. 




Apparently Anu was trying for him before Katty took him over. He had some sort of scene, if insiders are to believed, with Anu on one of his breaks with Katty.



Yes, but you see- Regardless of of everything,at the end of the day they're the first family of BW. Or rather the second because the B family is considered the first but it actually should be the Kapoors.


Marrying there will ensure lifetime spot-light & prominence. And I would imagine industry children to *not* be awed by that rather than  outsiders. Outsiders would want that more than industry children who already belong to famous film families.



Sonam had a thing for Biru. She was  joyous when DP-Biru broke up.. So I heard.. See I narrate all this but I don't fully believe a lot of it myselfLOL.. And also because I don't want random fan-bots attacking me as is IF tradition. LOLLOL

I agree and disagree. Had Raj Kapoor still been alive then yes the last name Kapoor would have garnered the same respect and attention as Bachchan. I just don't think it does today, especially compared to Amitabh Bachchan who is a living legend and very active at his 72 years age. I kind of agree with what You2 is saying in this regard. And to be fair Aishwarya Rai was a big name in her own right. Had Abhishek married a let's say Ameesha Patel or a Sonali Bendre would those ladies have gotten the same movie offer from KJo? Then there is Karisma (the irony of her romantic history is not lost on me here lol) who is not really that relevant anymore. And I don't know if Kareena would be if/when she retires had she not been Mrs. Nawab.


Having said all of the above, the above is my belief and I am projecting my own opinion of not just these families but also my feminist beliefs here. I can understand how Katrina or anyone else might think marrying a Kapoor is a big deal. I don't agree with it. But I get that that's how she might think.

^EXACTLY!!!!


Oh  Katty IS ANYTHING but  bholi bhaali. ROFL She just wants the K Tag anyway!! For that, she will do anything. And I MEAN ANYTHING! Ala KJo's KwK ROFL





Yes, people say how Ayan is actually in love with Biru. Seriously, I believe it. This is INSANE! And that Biru makes it clear to  his serious GFs to basically put up with Ayan or they don't get him.. Ok not in so many words but they he does. LOLLOL





Ayan is very charming though! Why are the best ones all gay?!!! Cry

I don't know why she thinks the Kapoor Khandan Pichkari is some grand prize that she needs to win. Hello, has she seen the history of the bahus of the Kapoor Khandan? The Shashi and Shammi branches are fine and well-adjusted, but the Raj gene passed down does not make for very happy marital life. 

Maybe Katty should have a heart to heart with Mummyji and Bebo ki Mummyji. 







LOLLOLLOL


Poor thing. She's had some effed up family life!!! She feels she needs the security. Apparently she's  doing &  going to  do anything to become Jr Mrs Kapoor.She knows her days are numbered & married into the first family is going to provide life-time longevity.




Oh sweetie-heart, he's gold prize for most of e'm. Just ask Anushka, DP, Alia et al. LOL

Well, at least, DP really did love him unlike Kat and many others. Too bad he left her himself. I guess good. He didn't deserve her, and anyway, karma was after dp as well for what she did to the last guy before she got with RK. LOL  So, in a way, both Kat and RK deserve each other! 



Yes they really really do.LOL

Anil Kapoor had affairs with Madhuri et al after marriage though Sonam can't stop gloating how loyal he has been to her mom. His wife probably turned a blind eye to sustain the marriage.
