The Kapoors Speak Of Diwali Dinners
First family of the Indian film industry, Kapoors, the progeny of the stalwart Prithviraj Kapoor and Showman Raj Kapoor, are serious foodies who truly represent what George Bernard Shaw once said, “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” Good food and fine whisky is what describes their lavish lifestyle, in terms of the festival of lights – Diwali, too.
Randhir Kapoor, the eldest son of Raj Kapoor, admits that they used to have lavish Diwali parties at his parents’ Chembur bungalow, where a puja was held every year and, afterwards, there would be a non-vegetarian spread along with firecrackers. The Diwali party used to end the next day with breakfast! His younger brother, Rishi Kapoor, pitches in to tell that their father loved to eat non-vegetarian food on Diwali. However, during the festivals of Maha Shivratri and Janmashtami, the parties were all about vegetarian food.
The Kapoors credit their roots for their immense love for food. They are originally from Peshawar, in north-west Pakistan and that is where their ‘tremendous weakness’ for food stems from. While most of the Kapoors swear by non-vegetarian fare, they also love vegetarian food cooked well and tasty.
