Neetu Kapoor, the pa who has been part of Bollywood for more than five decades, has inspired many with her ravishing looks and fashion statements. She made her debut as a child actor at the age of eight years in the film Suraj in 1966, and she starred opposite actor Randhir Kapoor in film Rickshawala in 1973 at the age of 15 years.

But it was in 1970s and ’80s when she earned fame. Neetu featured in more than 50 films, 12 of which were opposite her future husband, Rishi Kapoor including Rafoo Chakkar (1975), Kabhie Kabhie (1976), Amar Akbar Anthony (1977) and Duniya Meri Jeb Mein (1979).

Though she chose to stay away from films after her marriage in 1983, she has time and again given us some major life goals. Being a constant pillar of support to her husband, Rishi Kapoor who has been undergoing treatment for cancer in New York for the past nine months to being a doting mother to daughter Riddhima and son Ranbir, Neetu has not let her age dampen her spirits.

As she turns 61 this year, here are some of the yesteryear actor’s ravishing looks where she proves age is just a number.
