Neelima Azeem Biography

Neelima Azeem – a former actress of Bollywood is better known as Shahid Kapoor’s mother. This youth icon is the son of actors – Pankaj Kapur and Neelima. More than movies, she has been known for her broken relationships. She married thrice and surprisingly she is divorced too! She has divorced all her spouses. Her first husband was actor Pankaj Kapur whom she married in the year 1975. They got divorced in the year 1984 and Shahid Kapoor is their single child. Second time she got married to actor Rajesh Khattar in the year 1990. This marriage too didn’t last too long. They divorced in the year 2001 and Ishaan Khattar was born to this wedded couple. Ishaan Khattar has appeared with his half- brother as a child artist in the movie, ‘Vaah! Life ho to aisi!’.


Neelima made a third attempt to settle with her married life. This time, she married Indian classical vocalist, Munawar Ali Khan, son of Bade Ghulam Ali Khan in the year 2004. This marriage lasted for 5 years only and couple got divorced in the year 2009. It may be quite co-incidence. The story of the most successful film of Shahid Kapoor, ‘Jab we met’ looks similar to his real life and surprisingly the movie was made two years after Neelima’s third marriage.


Neelima was born as Kanwal Azim on 2 December 1959, Mumbai. Her father Anwar Azim was a prominent Marxist journalist and Urdu author. Her mother Khadija Azim belonged to the family of Urdu novelist and journalist Khwaja Ahmad Abbas, who himself belonged to the family of great Urdu poet, Mirza Ghalib.
