The passing of veteran actor, Rishi Kapoor, this year in April was indeed a huge loss to the Indian film industry and his family. But the Kapoor family has slowly returned to normalcy and are back to work, Neetu Kapoor included. The veteran actress is all set for her next film, Jug Jug Jiyo and just left for the shoot of the first schedule today.
The actress took to her Instagram to share a picture of the entire cast — which included Anil Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani and YouTuber Prajakta Koli — posing together before they boarded their private flight to Chandigarh. She wrote that this was the first flight she was taking after the pandemic hit. Along with it, missing her husband Rishi Ji‘s presence around her during this important day, she writes, “While Kapur Sahab, you aren’t here holding my hand, I know you are with me.”
She also thanks R and R for “encouraging her to do this“, and we think she means her son Ranbir Kapoor and daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni.

My first flight, in these scary times !! Nervousss for this journey !!🤞🏼 While Kapoor Sahab, you aren’t here holding my hand, I know you are with me .. #RnR thank you for encouraging me to do this.. ❣️❣️ #JugJugJiyo. P.S. – We are all Covid tested and safe, hence removed mask while taking picture.
It sure is super exciting for us too, as we will get to see Neetu Ji on screen after Besharam in 2013.
Helmed by ‘Good Newwz’ director, Raj Mehta, Jug Jig Jiyo pairs Neetu Kapoor alongside Anil Kapoor, while Varun and Kiara are set to play the younger couple. Prajakta Koli a.k.a MostlySane is making her Bollywood debut with this Raj Mehta directorial.
I sure cannot wait to see this stunning cast come together for this film!
