Arjun Kapoor Opens Up About His Equation With Janhvi And Khushi Kapoor
Before Sridevi’s accidental death earlier this year, not all was right between Boney Kapoor’s two families. Boney Kapoor’s children from his first marriage, Arjun and Anshula, weren’t really known to be close to Janhvi and Khushi, Boney’s kids from Sridevi. However, Sridevi’s untimely demise was what brought the family close.
Ever since the veteran actor’s demise, Arjun and Anshula have been pillars of support for their grieving father and younger siblings. Pictures and videos of the four of Boney Kapoor’s children, meeting for family dinners or social gatherings like cousin Sonam Kapoor’s wedding, flooded the internet.
Now Arjun, who had never spoken about all of it at length has got candid about his relationship with them. In a heart-to-heart conversation with DNA, the actor said, “I was in Punjab when I got the news. I called my maasi and sister immediately. I had to do what I felt was right. That’s what mom would expect of me, to be there for my father and family.”
“If I can be a good brother and a good son, then why not? Mujhe toh kuchh achha hi mil raha hai, I’m getting two more sisters and helping my father feel a little relaxed.”, he added.
However, criticizing the media for assuming too much too soon, Arjun said, “People jumped the gun that everything was perfect when it came to my relationship with Janhvi, Khushi, Anshula and dad. It was at a nascent stage as we were still figuring out things. But we were comfortable with each other and that was a good starting point. Mujhe darr tha ki zyada baat karne se nazar lag jayegi. I wanted things to take their own course.”
Talking about his half-sisters, Janhvi and Khushi, the actor revealed that are pretty sorted. “Janhvi and Khushi are both sorted. Today, we are able to speak one-on-one. I know they will figure out life in their own time, in their own way. Anshula and I are there for them.”
“The good part is that we have our independent lives, but whenever need be, we are there for each other. That’s how it should be. We don’t have to suddenly become a happy pretentious khandaan, which is why I took some time. Now, I’m talking about it as there’s a certain ease and I’ve been able to figure things out.”
