Naina Bachchan’s personal life
Despite leading a quiet life, Naina Bachchan maintains a significant connection to Bollywood. She is married to Bollywood actor Kunal Kapoor, renowned for his notable performance in the film “Rang De Basanti.”
According to reports, Shweta Bachchan Nanda played the role of a matchmaker between the couple. Kunal Kapoor once revealed in an interview their first encounter, saying, “We met at a fashion show, not at some theatre workshop as often rumored. It was actually Karan Johar’s fashion show, and she was there with her cousin Shweta Bachchan-Nanda. The interesting part is that I wasn’t supposed to be there, and neither was she. After walking the ramp for another show, I was about to leave when I bumped into Karan, who asked me to stay for his show. They say timing is everything. If it hadn’t been for those few extra seconds, we might never have crossed paths. The next morning, we were both scheduled to fly back to Mumbai on separate flights, but I changed my ticket to be on the same flight as her. The rest, as they say, is history…”
Naina Bachchan also shared her initial impression of meeting Kunal Kapoor, expressing, “When I first met Kunal, the immediate thought that struck me was ‘Wow! He’s tall, dark, and incredibly handsome.’ As time passed, it was a delightful revelation to realize that he possesses qualities far beyond his appearance. He is genuinely one of the kindest and nicest individuals I have ever encountered.”
The couple exchanged vows in an intimate wedding ceremony held on February 9, 2015, at Seychelles Beach. They joyfully welcomed their first child in 2022.
