Shahid Kapoor’s mother Neelima Azeem has spoken openly about her divorce after so many years with Pankaj Kapoor. After separating from Pankaj Kapoor, Neelima single-handedly raised her son Shahid, who was only three and a half years old at the time. He revealed in an interview that I had not decided to separate but he had moved on.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Neelima said, ‘I would like to say that I had not decided to separate. this is true. He (Pankaj Kapoor) had moved on and it was a difficult task to fill my stomach. We were friends for a long time. I think I befriended him when I was 15 years old. He had many good reasons and I understood it.
He adds, ‘When a relationship breaks up, which is called divorce, it is painful for both of them. There was a lot of friendship and attachment but heartbreak. Okay. She is very well settled with her family today and I wish her well.
Neelima said that, with the help of her friends, family, and dance troupe, she was able to get herself out of this personal shock. However, it was Shahid, who was his greatest strength.
Let us tell you that in 1975 Neelima and Pankaj were tied in marriage. But after a few years the two separated. After their divorce in 1984, Pankaj Kapoor married actress Supriya Pathak and has two children – Sanah Kapoor, who made her Bollywood debut with her, and Rouhan Kapoor.
Significantly, Neelima has a son Ishaan Khattar from her ex-husband Rajesh Khattar, who is active in Bollywood. Neelima married Rajesh Khattar in 1991, but that too did not work. Neelima then married Raza Ali Khan in 2004 and they also had a breakup in 2009.
