Love you, happy birthday Arjun bhaiya”.
Arjun’s sister, Anshula Kapoor too took to her Instagram and shared a childhood picture with Arjun. She captioned it, “Happy birthday Bhai You are genuinely the kindest, most hardworking, strongest & funniest person I know, with the biggest heart. You’ve always been our “protector” & my anchor in more ways than one - my steadfast support, my shelter from the storm, my strength & my emotional cornerstone. I will always be grateful that you’ve been with me through it all, making sure we are strong enough to withstand anything & that we will always come out on the other side unscathed. Always continue marching to your own beat, because we wouldn’t have you be any other way. love you to infinity @arjunkapoor #AlwaysByYourSide.

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja shared a Boomerang video of Arjun blowing his birthday candle, and captioned it, “Happy happy birthday Arjun! Love you tons! Wish I was there celebrating with you.. miss you! @arjunkapoor you’re the best brother anyone can have, to the funniest kindest gentlest boy”.
In an earlier interview with Hindustan Times, Arjun talked about his birthday, career and life. When asked if he is a birthday person, Arjun retorted, “I consider it a milestone from where you look back at things to reminisce what all have you done this year and also look forward to the coming year. You just hope that by your next birthday, you will be in a better position. It’s a nice reminder of feeling grateful, happy and proud that at 33, I have managed to achieve quite a bit. When I was 23, I didn’t dream that I will be in such a place 10 years down the line. That way, I have surpassed my own expectations as well as others and especially those who definitely didn’t expect me to survive in this industry.” (Also Read: Janhvi Kapoor Trolled For Her Dress, Arjun Kapoor Slams A Media House For Giving Attention To Trolls)
When asked about plans for his birthday, Arjun remarked, “None as such! I know that dad (Boney Kapoor), my grandmother Janhvi, Khushi and Anshula (sisters) are in town, so I will definitely meet the entire family during the day. I am sure everyone will get to know my night’s plan through paparazzi (laughs). But I am certain I will be with my friends, so dinner is definitely on. I guess I will have people over as I have just redone the house so I will use that opportunity to call some of my friends but this year, I don’t want to host a big bash or anything. It’s going to be an intimate affair.”
Sharing his favourite birthday moment, Arjun reminisced, “I used to love birthday parties. As a kid, I always had a fascination with fancy dress parties so I would turn into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, a WWE wrestler, Super-Man and Spiderman (laughs). I recall since my birthday comes in the monsoon, other parents would get paranoid to send their children over. So, we would have a film screening (of a movie that was going to release that weekend) at trial theatre and then a cake would be cut along followed by lunch. I would plan my birthdays with my mother way in advance. It used to be like an event, an award show. That has still not changed. Even now, that’s the only time you will see me having a party.”
Arjun shared his birthday wish for this year, and said, “If I say it, it may not get fulfilled. Aaj kal dar lagta hai. If I have just one birthday wish this time, I would genuinely want my family to have some peace and calm, which I am sure people will also respect and understand.” (Also Read: Sanjay Kapoor Reveals What He Is Going To Do At Nephew Arjun Kapoor's Wedding; Shares Throwback Pic)
When asked if marriage is on his mind as of now, Arjun replied, “I think my family has gotten a bit tired with back-to-back weddings (of cousins, Mohit Marwah and Sonam K Ahuja), so they have asked me to take a break (laughs). Abhi chhokra jawaan hua hai (laughs). Right now, I am not in the frame of mind to even consider marriage. I am very happy seeing my near-and-dear ones after marriage. I think it will still take me two-three years [to think of marriage]. You need to be in the right frame of mind. Just because others are doing it, you can’t do the same. Both my cousins were clear that they wanted to settle down. They worked on their relationships long enough to feel that. So it made complete sense to them [to get hitched].”
Arjun also talked about the best birthday gift he has ever got, and “I can’t remember anything off-hand. I used to take gifts from people, regardless of whether that person intended to give or not (laughs). Maybe, this year will be different as I might get a nice gift. I can’t recall any one life-changing, life-altering moment in terms of a gift. But, I have had many people, who have looked after me for the last so many years. I have had so many memorable moments around my birthdays. So it would be unfair to pinpoint one. I have never had a forgettable birthday.”
Namaste England actor further added, “I love cakes. I was telling Janhvi and Anshula (sisters) the other day that on your birthday, you should eat as much cake as you want because you feel that it’s not unhealthy or that you won’t put on weight. I am not going to buy my own cake, but, I will eat whatever I get on my birthday pyaar se. I will eat one slice in everyone’s name, and that way I can finish an entire cake (laughs). On my birthday, I will not stop myself. So, let’s see what my sisters, family and friends get for me.” (Also Read: Arjun Kapoor Apologises To Janhvi Kapoor For Not Being There By Her Side At Dhadak's Trailer Launch)
He further went on to say, “Yes, once a year, you get a reason to party. And, I try to do that as it’s the only day I can ask my producers for a holiday without feeling guilty. Then, I end up doing something. I have always called my friends over and have a party. I always try to make my birthdays entertaining for myself as well as my friends. An international Bollywood award function has just gotten over, so, I don’t know how many people will be in town. But, I will definitely spend it with my family.”
Happy Birthday Arjun! We wish you a year full of happiness and success!
