When reports surfaced about her son Ranbir Kapoor's linkups with Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif, media accounts suggested her disapproval of the ladies in his life. Notably, there was an incident when the 65-year-old 'cropped' Katrina Kaif from their annual Christmas lunch picture, surprising everyone.

In a recent post on the discussion platform Reddit, a user shared a video featuring the Animal actor on Simi Garewal's show, "Simi Selects India's Most Desirable." In the video, the veteran actress delivered a message advising her son. She categorizes two types of girls: those who come with scissors and those who come with needles. According to Neetu, the former intends to break the family, while the latter, symbolizing mending, strives to keep the family together.

She was quoted as saying: "There are two kinds of girls, one who comes with scissors, and one who comes with a needle. Scissors is the one who breaks the family, or jo needle ke sath aati hai, that kind off mends the family together, makes sure the family stays together. And that's the girl I would like."
Following the video's posting, netizens filled the comments section with diverse opinions. One user expressed, "Aurat hi Aurat ki sabse badi Dushman wala example he yeh." Another commented, "The most nonsensical take I’ve ever heard… see Sharmila Tagore's interview where she says that the daughter-in-law is new and the onus lies with the family to make her feel welcome… not the other way around." Additionally, a netizen pointed out the Barfi actor's apparent awkwardness towards the end of the video. Many felt Ranbir looked super embarrassed in the clip.
