Babita Shivdasani-Kapoor, popularly known as Babita or Babita Kapoor, is a former Indian actress who worked in Hindi cinema. She is the first cousin of Sadhana Shivdasani, who is the daughter of actor Hari Shivdasani.

Babita Kapoor Husband


Randhir Kapoor

Randhir Kapoor was on the set of the film Sangam with his father, Raj Kapoor, in 1969. Babita was also present, and young Randhir had fallen head over heels for the doe-eyed beauty. They had met on the sets and subsequently began seeing each other on chupke chupke dates. Randhir Kapoor thought it would be ideal if Babita signed up for a film in which he is also acting. Randhir could only introduce the love of his life to the Kapoor family in this manner.

Randhir and Babita wedded in a Punjabi wedding at the Kapoor residence on November 6, 1971. The problems began in 1981, when their second child, Kareena Kapoor, was born, as financial difficulties began to strain Randhir and Babita's marriage. Randhir Kapoor was labelled a flop hero by the mid-1980s. By that point, he had become an alcoholic and had abandoned his acting career. Finally, in 1987, Babita chose to divorce Randhir. The news had spread like wildfire and caused a media frenzy.

Babita was serious about breaking up with Randhir by 1988. Randhir had gone to live with his parents after she had asked him to leave her flat. Babita had remained in her apartment with Karisma and Kareena. Babita had remained strong for the next few years, rather than complaining about her failing marriage. Babita had almost no touch with Randhir when she was assisting Karisma and Kareena with their careers.

However, they began with limited communication in the early 2000s, and by 2007, after 19 years apart, the estranged life partners had buried their disagreements and started over. Both Karisma and Kareena had been anticipating this moment. Randhir and Babita continue to live apart, although the animosity between them has eased.
