It’s been more than four months since the veteran Actress Sridevi passed away in Dubai. Her sudden death came as a shock for the entire country and left everyone in tears. The Kapoor family has been battling with this sudden loss ever since and not just Boney Kapoor and his daughters with Sridevi, Janhvi and Khushi but Boney’s other kids Arjun and Anshula have also been left in distress over the untimely death of Sridevi.

 

While Sridevi never had a good bonding with Arjun, after her death the actor has been very supportive towards his father and his half sisters. He has been a constant pillar of strength and support for the entire family through the sad times. On the launch of Janhvi’s debut movie Dhadak’s trailer, Arjun Kapoor posted a very touching message that read, “Firstly, sorry I’m not there in Mumbai but I’m by your side, don’t worry (sic).”

 

He was questioned more about the same. He 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. But I just did what I felt impulsively at that point. Between me and my sister (Anshula), we felt that it was the right thing to do. Also, it all happened after we consulted my maasi (maternal aunt), because I’ll always need her consent [for certain things] for her to be fine about our actions.”

On his message and how his father Boney would react on the same, 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. But I just did what I felt impulsively at that point. Between me and my sister (Anshula), we felt that it was the right thing to do. Also, it all happened after we consulted my maasi (maternal aunt), because I’ll always need her consent [for certain things] for her to be fine about our actions.”

 

When Arjun was asked whether his family, especially father Boney Kapoor, is pleased by the message, he stated,

“Honestly, we’re still figuring things out and picking up the pieces. I’m a really emotional person, so my emotions do come out [especially on social media]. So, you can say that my protective side comes around in those moments. I’ll continue to be that way as a brother and as somebody who’s always looking out for their best interest. But 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 continued, “Maybe, when the time is right, and when I’m able to articulate my feelings better and give it some kind of shape, I’ll talk about it in detail. But right now, there are too many emotions to feel. Also, as somebody who has always been extremely close to his father, I want Janhvi and Khushi to be absolutely okay as much as I would want Anshula to be fine. 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].”

Arjun also talked about his half sisters Janhvi and Khushi. He said, “Yes, they’re very nice, sensible kids, maybe more than me, too (smiles). There’s a lot of dignity and grace in the way they’ve conducted themselves. In a way, I think my father is also relieved that they both are such sorted kids, as that could have been the toughest thing in such a situation. For me, there are no rights and wrongs in this [because] it’s all still a blur, as a lot has happened. When I come to terms with it myself, I will be able to answer it better.”

 

About Janhvi’s first movie Dhadak, Arjun said,“I’m looking forward to watching Dhadak, and I’m very happy that people have reacted so positively to the trailer and also [to] Janhvi. She has started doing her [promotional] interviews, and she was at home a few days back to discuss how I went about my interviews during Ishaqzaade (2012; his debut film). She is a very inquisitive child that way, who’s learning how to go about things. This is a good time for her to focus on work.”
