If there’s one thing that’s common besides DNA in the family members of the Great Kapoor Khandaan, it’s their shared love for food. While quite a few of them are Bollywood stars and are committed to looking fit on screen, there is no denying that off-camera you would probably catch them eating. From the late superstar Rishi Kapoor to the evergreen Anil Kapoor (to answer the puzzling look on your face – yes they are related) the Kapoors love to eat! In fact, the latest Kapoors to indulge in a food trail have been Neetu Kapoor and Anil Kapoor who were seen enjoying Nirula’s ice-cream in Delhi, with Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani while promoting their upcoming movie Jug Jugg Jeeyo. The Jug Jugg Jeeyo team has been visiting many cities in India as part of their promotional spree and have been relishing regional food, while interacting with fans. Let’s have a look at some of the dishes the Kapoor clan loves to eat: 

Rishi Kapoor 

Late superstar Rishi Kapoor was a complete foodie. From parathas to kebabs, Rishi’s love for food made it difficult for him to decide on which food was truly his favourite. In many old videos, whenever the press asked the veteran actor about which food he likes best, the actor is seen giving different replies to different people! There wasn’t a cuisine that Rishi wasn’t captured enjoying, by the paparazzi in Mumbai. Some of the dishes that Rishi has admitted to loving include Fish Fry, Yellow Dal, Dal Tadka, Palak Paneer and many different dishes from the Chinese cuisine. Apart from this Rishi also loved to have his maa ke haath ka khaana, including Parsi Akori style eggs and Yakhni Pulao. 

A funny anecdote about the foodie: Rishi’s hilarious foodie moment happened when he was shooting for a breakfast scene for the movie Housefull 2. Rishi who was a true blue Punjabi, relished eating parathas. Before his shot that involved breakfast scenes, he saw some of his crew members eating parathas. Unable to stop himself, Rishi ended up eating quite a few of them. When the time to shoot the breakfast scene for the movie came, Rishi who was already stuffed by then, found it difficult to have another morsel of food as part of shooting the scene, and the shoot had to be delayed.
