The sudden demise of Sridevi was shocking and painful for the nation and it devastated her family. Sridevi was often accompanied by her husband, Boney Kapoor and their daughters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor and this family of four were rarely seen without each other by their side. Indeed, her unfortunate and untimely demise did leave a void in their lives. (Also Read: Khushi Kapoor Turns 18, Arjun Kapoor, Anshula And Janhvi Kapoor's Birthday Wishes For Baby Sister)
Boney Kapoor’s children, Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor from his first wife, Mona Shourie Kapoor might not have had the best rapport with their stepmother, Sridevi, but that surely didn’t come in the way of Arjun and Anshula being there for their half-siblings, Janhvi and Khushi in tough times. Despite the complex and strained relationship between Boney Kapoor’s two families, Arjun and Anshula have been irreplaceable pillars of support post the tragedy of their father’s second family.
The half-sibling lot of Arjun, Anshula, Janhvi and Khushi have been giving some major goals to the world by being there for each other in times of need. From birthdays to festivals, they try and celebrate these special occasions with each other. Arjun, who is known for pulling the leg of his sisters and co-stars, recently got involved in an Instagram banter with his sister, Janhvi.
On November 8, 2018, Janhvi shared a picture of her biting a lipstick. The Dhadak star captioned them as, “Who else is obsessed with matte lipsticks?! Wearing one of my favourite shades - Mona Lisa from @NykaaBeauty’s Ultra Matte Range! They have an extreme matte finish that’s long lasting but still leaves your lips feeling soft and supple! Go check them out on @MyNykaa promise you will love them as much as I do”. Before moving ahead with her banter with Arjun, check out the pictures that she shared.
Just like every brother, Arjun didn’t leave the chance to pull his sister’s legs and commented on Janhvi’s picture, "Didn't eat lunch na?". However, it seemed Janvhi was quite prepared and used to Arjun pulling her leg. To his comment, she replied, "I feel you should save the jokes for world icecream day". Checkout the screenshot of their hilarious social media banter.
In 2017, Arjun termed his relationship with Sridevi, Janhvi and Khushi as ‘non-existent’, “We don’t really meet and spend time together so it doesn’t really exist.” About its transformation from 'non-existent' to 'perfect', Arjun told DNA, “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.” (Also Read: Arjun Kapoor Reveals Why He And Anshula Are There For Boney, Janhvi And Khushi, Post Sridevi's Death)
The Namaste England star went on to say, “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.”
Speaking about coming with Janhvi on the show, Koffee With Karan Season 6, Arjun had said, “When Karan Johar told me that this was the combination, I was pleasantly surprised, because I am the buffoon and prankster on Koffee With Karan. I thought that I'll get to spend some time with Janhvi. Honestly, I haven't been able to spend time with her. In February (when Sridevi passed away) I was shooting for Namaste England.”
Arjun further added, “I literally entered into their lives as the whirlwind of chaos. I did my bit and whatever I could. My sister allowed to welcome them as our family, or at least put them at ease at that moment, and simplify things as much as we could by being supportive. And, then I had to disappear and go work. She had Dhadak releasing. When the trailer came out, I was not in town, and when the film was releasing, I came back a day before. Now I was away for India's Most Wanted (next film) for a month-and-a-half in Nepal. So, I have also kind of been away from her and Khushi Kapoor. I've met them in between. We've had dinners at home and obviously, they spend a lot more time with Anshula Kapoor, and so with my dad (Boney Kapoor).”
Thanking Karan Johar for choosing him and Janhvi as guests for his show, Arjun elaborated, “Now that I look back, I haven't spent any time with them. I felt it was a nice way of me getting to know her. And, I did get to know her a lot better, off camera also. She's a very sorted girl. She's sensible and funny, and also has quite a few hidden talents that came around in the show; just like how I am, a hidden gem (laughs). I think this was meant to be that we would discover each other. What Karan does is, he allows you to be in a comfortable environment and that kind of let's go your inhibitions that maybe I and she would have taken a couple of more dinners and lunches and maybe a holiday or two. Now, suddenly after spending two hours, I feel like I've known her all my life. I can only be thankful to Karan for choosing this combination.” (Also Read: Anshula Kapoor Shares Daddy Boney Kapoor's Favourite Child Out Of Arjun, Janhvi, Khushi And Her)
What a smart reply by Janhvi! Don’t you think so?
Sisters are best friends for life and beyond. Right from knowing each other’s bad habit, some secret crushes, or for the matter everything about love life, all sisters are partners in crime.
