Arjun Kapoor is in the news for many things, one of them being a constant support for his sisters- Anshula, Khushi and Janhvi Kapoor! After the sudden and unfortunate demise of our legendary queen actor Sridevi, Arjun became the rock of support not only to his father Boney but also to his two half-sisters, Janhvi and Khushi.
Earlier on, Arjun had quite a rocky relationship with his half-siblings, however, this did not deter from being by their side the moment they needed him the most! And, from there on he has become the world’s best brother to-be-honest!
From taking care of Anshula, to understanding familial relationships to becoming huge part in Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor’s life now. Here’s how Arjun Kapoor has explained this change in the most heartfelt manner:
“So much happened that we didn’t have the time to figure things out. Having experienced something as harsh as that, I wouldn’t wish it for my worst enemy. I know what it feels like to be in a situation where you’re grasping for life,” he told a leading daily.
Arjun added furthermore, “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. People jumped the gun that everything was perfect when it came to my relationship with Janhvi, Khushi, Anshula and dad.”
Explaining this slow reconciliation, he said, “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. 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.”
He further shared, “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. Kabhi kabhi in all the bhaag-daud, you don’t realise how important it is to connect, sit down and have a meal with your loved ones. Somewhere, all of us have been able to get that perspective.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Arjun Kapoor will be next seen in Namastey England alongside Parineeti Chopra as well as also in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
