Since ages, it's been a known fact that the "Kapoor Family's Daughter-in-laws are not allowed to join film post their marriage. There have bene various stories circulated in the media about how strict the family's traditions are.
However, now, Kapoor family's daughters and granddaughter of iconic filmmaker Raj Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor have slammed all such stories.
At the India Today Conclave 2018, Karisma stated that it's just a "Myth" that we dont allow our daughter-in-laws to work in films. She said that people have a misconception that the Kapoor family is too traditional to allow their daughters-in-law to work in films.
"I think it is a myth that Kapoor bahus (daughters-in-law) do not work. Whether it is my mother (Babita, wife of Randhir Kapoor) or Neetu (Kapoor -- Rishi Kapoor's wife) aunty, they made a choice of not working after marriage and having children.
"On the other hand, Jennifer (Kendal -- wife of Shashi Kapoor) aunty and Geeta (Bali -- first wife of Shammi Kapoor) aunty worked throughout, even after marriage. So we all practised our choice," says Karisma.
Adding to that, Kareena said: "Also, I think our parents were very cosmopolitan. They did not stop us from doing what we wanted to. My father was very supportive. Though he did not recommend us to any producer, he always encouraged us to fly."
