On the personal front Reena Kapoor hails from a family of Merchant Navy, both his dad and brother sharing the same profession. In the recent past she tied the knot with a software engineer who works in HCL Technologies and resides at Noida. His father-in-law was in the Air Force and now flies independently. Like her on-screen matrimonial alliance her off-screen one was also arranged. Both the story of her serial and that of her off-screen life were almost running on a similar track. Both decided from the very beginning that they would not let their marriage affect each other's career and decided to take their families into confidence. Both her husband and in-laws are very much fond of her character in the serial and watch the show religiously.
On the professional front Reena Kapoor is thankful to Rajshri Productions who has given her this opportunity to showcase her acting skills by portraying such a character which she feels is an inspiration to the younger generation. For this actress also acting happened by chance and she has settled down in the tinsel town to pursue her acting career since 6-7 years. She went to accompany a friend for an audition with Lekh Tandon and got selected instead of her. Following that she has acted in many popular shows like 'Ganga Maiya' for DD, 'Dekho Magar Pyar Se' and also 'Kisse Apna Kahein' by Saira Bano. But she catapulted to fame in the Sahara One shows 'Woh Rehne Wali Mehlon Ki'. Leaving out on the super hit serial 'Devi' she feels she had made the biggest mistake of her life. She is however not very ambitious in life and does not believe that one has to party hard in order to grow network and build up his/her career.
About her character in 'Woh Rehne Wali Mehlon Ki' Reena Kapoor claims that Rajshri Productions were looking for a heroine she decided to give a try and was fortunate enough to bag the role. She claims that she had successfully passed the screening and dialogue delivery test. About the later one she remarked that though they decided to try her mettle by giving her hard core Hindi script to read out she managed to qualify through it. While portraying the role also she tried to get into the skin of the character and has many similar traits like that of her on-screen character.
In future she would also like to try out theater and claims she would definitely like to experience that at some point in her life. She has already made her mark in the Bollywood Film Industry by performing in a meaty role in the chartbuster 'Kya Kehna' by the renowned filmmaker Kundan Shah where she played the role of Preity Zinta's close friend. About working in films in future she is not at all very comfortable with the idea of exposing so her interest would revolve around the television industry. It is wished by all her fans that she would walk many more miles before she quits her acting career.
