Saif and Kareena Kapoor.

Kunal Kapoor says in the interview: 

It is not true that my maternal grandfather (Geoffrey Kendal) did not want my parents to marry.

My grandfather was concerned about losing his leading lady. My mother played all the lead roles in the Shakespeareana theatre company run by my grandfather.

It would be hard to find better grandparents than my mother's parents. They were the most amazing people.

Before my parents got married, they both worked with Shakespeareana.

They were in Singapore and Malaysia for a show, but the shows were cancelled and they were broke.

They wanted to get married so Raj (Kapoor) Uncle gave them money for their tickets and they came to Mumbai and got married (in 1958).

My maternal grandfather loved India. He spent half his life in India. You should read Shakespearewala, the book he wrote. You will know how my grandparents travelled the whole of India with their plays.

My grandfather came to India during the war with the army. He fell in love with India and then he came back to India in the 1950s.

My parents were in love with each other; they took care of each other.

My mother died when she was just 50. My dad was 46 then.

Our mother's death caused us and our father a lot of grief; we had our own way of dealing with it.
