Bollywood actor Randhir Kapoor has lashed out against his estranged son-in-law Sunjay Kapur who has accused his actress wife Karisma Kapoor of marrying him for his money.

The couple, who filed for divorce in May 2014 after almost 11 years of marriage, have hurled accusations at each other and their respective families of coercion, negligence and unsympathetic behaviour, according to media reports.

According to the Mumbai Mirror, the Delhi-based industrialist said Karisma married him for his money in a 'in a calculated and clinical manner'.

Sunjay, who has now filed a fresh divorce petition in the Bandra family court, has claimed that Karisma married him 'on the rebound' and is using their children Samaira and Kiaan as 'pawns' in the broken relationship.

"The whole world knows about the Kapoors and god has blessed us with enough wealth and talent. We can support ourselves for the rest of our lives. We are talented also. So, we don't have to run after anybody's money, especially Sunjay Kapur's," Randhir told IANS.

Randhir also added that Sunjay is making these accusations to 'impress upon his girlfriends that he's wealthy'.

The Kapoor family has also been in the news because their ancestral house in Peshawa, Pakistan, was demolished recently. The 98-year-old Kapoor Haveli was badly damaged and was thus pulled down, reported The Times of India.
