Having undergone a tough phase in her life, especially in the context of bringing up two daughters after her separation from Randhir Kapoor, Babita knew the value of money, and obviously wanted a stable, and secure future for her daughters. In the late nineties, while Karisma was a rising actor, and had accolades in the likes of a National Award to her credit—Abhishek, on the other hand was nothing more than Amitabh's son.
To add to that, the Bachchan family was undergoing severe financial losses after Amitabh's deteriorating career in acting, and debts accrued on account of a failed production house. Babita had serious doubts on Abhishek's credibility, which is why she allegedly demanded a pre-nup, with some particular proportion of Amitabh's wealth in the name of Abhishek, so as to enable financial security for her daughter, Karisma. This was not acceptable to Amitabh, which eventually led to the wedding being called off.

Media speculated left and right over the whole issue, and came up with rumours—from Karisma's reluctance to move into the Bachchan household, to she being discouraged to continue her career in acting, from Jaya Bachchan's dominating influence over Abhishek, to Babita's interference in Karisma's life. In the end, the heartbroken and estranged couple moved on in their lives, but history knows that they sacrificed love in order to please their respective families.
