Arjun Kapoor, who is riding high on the professional front, is known for his wit and humour. In a recent interview, Arjun Kapoor opened up about the wish of his grandmother, Nirmal Kapoor (Boney Kapoor's mother), which he cannot fulfil. Scroll down to know more!
Arjun Kapoor also talked about his mother, Mona Shourie Kapoor and revealed the last conversation he had with her before she passed away. For the unversed, Arjun Kapoor's mother, Mona had passed away shortly before the release of his debut film, Ishqzaade.
Revealing his grandmother's wish, Arjun Kapoor said, "It's very difficult to fulfil my grandmother's wish because she wants grandkids and I can't be the one who can give her that, now we are relying purely on all the married Kapoor khandan ke chirag to fulfill that wish very quickly." Looks like Arjun Kapoor was hinting towards his cousin, Sonam Kapoor, don't you think?
Arjun had lost his mom, Mona Kapoor nine years back to cancer. Sharing his last conversation with her, Arjun Kapoor said, "Before my mum passed I had a very honest chat with her and she had this wish that Anshula and I make it as individual as a human being, not about the success or failure of the work that we do, just as people. And I have always told her (mom) that this is something that I always make sure that Anshula represents the value system my mother has put in and even me to whatever degree. The conversation was to make sure that we become independent, self-sufficient well brought up kids, and represent her value and I think that's an ongoing process that will never end."
Speaking about his mother's wish, Arjun Kapoor said, "My grandparents passed away very suddenly at that age, but for my mom, that last wish was always to see me on the big screen and unfortunately, I couldn't fulfil that because she died 45 days before the release of Ishaqzaade, but I did show her the trailer."
On May 10, 2021, Arjun Kapoor had taken to his IG handle and had revealed why he hated every bit of Mother’s Day. Sharing a throwback picture with his mom, Mona Shourie Kapoor, Arjun had written, “Yesterday was Mother’s Day I hated every bit of it.... Tomorrow is 9 years of me being an actor but I’m still lost without you Mom. Just like in this picture I hope ur smiling watching over me & u got my back.”
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Arjun Kapoor had bared his heart out and had said that his mother’s death still hurts him every day. After all, just when he was going to stand up on his own feet, his mother had left him. Talking about the same, Arjun had said, "All the success and the failure, the love and hatred in these 8 years is all handle-able but what's not handle-able is the fact that I don't have her around me. Aap mujhe jitni nafraat doge chalega because I have seen the lowest lows in my life already. I lost my mother 45 days before I was about to embark on the toughest journey of my life where the world was going to see me. Everything else seems small in comparison."
Well, we hope Arjun Kapoor gets married soon!
