When Neelima began dating Pankaj Kapur she was working toward her goal of becoming a dancer. She wanted to be a professional Kathak dancer and was studying under Birju Maharaj. Everything began in 1974 when the young couple experienced an unbreakable love affair. The intensity of their attraction led Pankaj Kapur then 21 years old to choose to wed Neelima Azeem then 16 years old in 1975.

In 1981 the couple gave birth to Shahid Kapoor their lone child. Before Shahid was born everything was going well but then things started to change.

Supriya and Pankaj agreed that getting another chance was preferable. They are happy taking care of their family and enjoy a successful marriage. Sanaah their first kid was born in 1990 and Ruhaan their second child was born in 1994. A wolf pack is formed by Ishaan Neelima Azeem's son and all three of Pankaj Kapur's children.

Supriya declares I feel like I have Pankaj in three different ages: at 60 as himself at 33 as Shahid and now with my younger son Ruhaan at 20 the author said.
