Hum jab honge saath saal ke, aur tum hogi pachpan ki…
Bolo preet nibhaaogi na, tab bhi apne bachpan ki?
Thus went the lyrics of the song from the Randhir Kapoor directed film Kal Aaj Aur Kal in 1971 starring Randhir and Babita Kapoor. Randhir went on to marry Babita and had two daughters, Karisma and Kareena. And though the couple parted ways long ago, that song must surely have rung a bell in their minds when Babita fed her husband a cake which was gifted to him by grandsons Taimur and Kiaan and granddaughter Samaira.
“Happy Birthday Nana, We Love You,” said a sign planted on the cake, at what seemed to be a very happy family gathering going by Karisma Kapoor’s picture on her Instagram account.
“Kareena came in alone as Saif was away at a shoot and Taimur was not seen with her. Karisma came in with her children Samaira and Kiaan,” says an eyewitness.
In 2017, when Randhir celebrated his 70th birthday, it was a big affair with other Bollywood stars in attendance at a party hosted by the daughters. This time around however, the birthday was a family celebration at Randhir’s house.
