Relationship with Ella[edit | edit source]

Ella and Dr. Kapoor's friendship began when she listens to him while serving him coffee. After unintentionally inviting her to the fundraising gala, Vijay started spending more time with Ella. Eventually he gives Ella's $2000 for her dog's vet bill. Their relationship becomes complicated when she starts to date his son Rohan.

Dr. Kapoor originally believed that Rohan only dated Ella to take revenge on him because he did not give him money to finance his new album.

Vijay tries to explain this to her so that there are no more misunderstandings, but he does not express it well. Their relationship becomes strained due to this.

When Ella becomes pregnant, Rohan disappears, right after asking his father to take care of her. Initially Dr. Kapoor is concerned, but quickly becomes excited to have a grandchild.

Ella struggled during her pregnancy and told Vijay she was going to move back in with her parents in Idaho. Not liking how far away that was, he offered to let Ella live with him. She accepts the offer, but struggles with the new arrangement initially as she feels like he is smothering her.
