Actor Arjun Kapoor has finally opened up on his relationship with his half-sisters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor and life after the tragic death of legendary actor Sridevi.
Sridevi was Boney Kapoor’s second wife and Arjun and his younger sister Anshula Kapoor were born to his first wife Mona Kapoor, who he had divorced to marry Sridevi.
Even though Arjun and Anshula have shown incredible grace in protecting Janhvi and Khushi after the death of Sridevi, his comments during a recent interview to a leading newspaper shows that the actor has still not forgotten the bitter past.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Arjun said, “It’s difficult for me to give a one-off reply, or in a ‘by the way’ manner. I actually need a lot of time to process what has happened.” The Ki & Ka actor then said that his decision to protect Janhvi and Khushi post Sridevi’s death was because he ‘felt impulsively at that point’ adding that ‘between me and my sister(Anshula), we felt that it was the right thing to do.’
Arjun revealed that their decision to provide protection to Janhvi and Khushi in the immediate aftermath of Sridevi’s death was only after they consulted their aunt- Mona Kapoor’s sister. “I’ll always need her consent (for certain things) for her to be fine about our actions,” he added.
His inner pain came out when Arjun said that ‘I still don’t have answers to a lot of things.’ “Too much has happened and I wouldn’t wish these things even on my worst enemies. I’ve experienced it first-hand, so if I encompass everything in one answer, it would make the matter very small,” he told Hindustan Times.
Arjun said that he needed more time to give shape to his feelings. He said, “But the things that have led us to these circumstances are extremely tragic; that’s why I need some more time to figure out what life holds (for us).”
The general consensus was that Sridevi’s tragic death in February this year had a profound impact in bridging the gap between her daughters, Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor and Boney Kapoor’s other two children, Anshula and Arjun Kapoor.
Arjun in particular has left no stone unturned in acting like a big brother while protecting his grieving sisters, Janhvi and Khushi. Anshula, for her part, too had shut up a troll, who had tried to target Janhvi soon after Sridevi’s death.
