NEW DEHLI – Filmstar Rishi Kapoor has said that his family has no emotional connect to have any emotional attachment with his grandfather’s ancestral house in Peshawar Kapoor Haveli, and let the Pakistan government to do whatever they wish to do with it.
According to the Hindustan Times, “We don’t have any emotional connect to that house since we haven’t seen it. Let the Pakistan government demolish it. I am not even sure if that was Raj Kapoor’s own house or rented because he didn’t have that much money then to own a house. So I don’t think that anyone from the Kapoor family has any problem with that,” he said.
“We came to India even before the partition happened and never did see the house. I don’t know why others are having an issue, when we ourselves don’t have any problem with the demolition. We three brothers never stayed there. Why would we have a problem?” he said.
Though Raj Kapoor was born in that house – none of his kids ever stayed there. And once they shifted their base to Mumbai they didn’t even visit that place again.
