Namastey England actor, Arjun Kapoor has really proven himself to be the strongest son and brother in the last few months after the demise of his step-mother, Sridevi ji. He has constantly been a support to his father, Boney Kapoor and half-siblings, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor as an unwavering pillar of strength.
Now, in an interview with the DNA, Arjun Kapoor has opened up about his changing relationship with half-sisters, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. Confused? Let’s give you a little context here. Boney Kapoor has had two marriages in his life- first with Mona Shourie Kapoor, through which Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor were born and second with Sridevi, through which Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor were born.

Ever since his father’s second marriage, Arjun had not really liked his second mom, Sridevi ji, and consequently, his equation with Janhvi and Khushi was estranged. And, it was last year (2017) that Arjun had said that his relationship with Sridevi ji and her daughters is ‘non-existent’. He had revealed, “We don’t really meet and spend time together so it doesn’t really exist”.
But it seems that Sridevi ji’s unfortunate death on February 24, 2018, has really brought the estranged half-siblings together. 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”.
Arjun further added, “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”.

Talking about how their equation is today, the 33-year-old actor added, “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”.
And he finally 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”.
That’s quite an insight into the relationship that Arjun, Janhvi and Khushi share with each other. In fact, we are more optimistic now to get more scoops of their relationship considering that reportedly, this famous half-sibling duo, would be seen on the first episode of Koffee with Karan Season 6 to be aired on October 21, 2018.
