She was inspired by her aunt ‘Sadhana’, so she decided to become an actress. However, because of some family issues, Sadhna and Babita never spoke to each other.
Film ‘Andaaz’ by Ramesh Sippy could be Babita’s first film. Her father turned down the offer as she had to play a widow’s character and he did not feel that the role was suitable for his daughter’s debut.
She left acting at the peak of her career after she married her then boyfriend ‘Randhir Kapoor‘ since his family did not approve of her working in the films after marriage.
Babita’s last film was ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ (1971). She worked in the movie with her future husband, father-in-law (late Raj Kapoor) and grandfather–in–law (late Prithviraj Kapoor).
As the result of back to the back failure in the films, Randhir Kapoor became alcoholic. His addiction and reckless behaviour led to the separation of Babita and Randhir Kapoor in 1988. However, they never got divorced and they participate in every activity in the family as a couple.
