Boney Kapoor and his first wife, Mona Shourie Kapoor had given birth to two kids, Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor. Later, Boney Kapoor had tied the knot with Sridevi and they had become proud parents of two daughters, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. While Boney Kapoor was a father of four kids, owing to the rift between Mona and Sridevi, the kids never got the opportunity to gel well.
It was in 2018, when Boney Kapoor’s second wife, Sridevi had breathed her last, leaving the entire nation in shock and worried about her two daughters, Janhvi and Khushi as they were inseparable. However, it was Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor, who had stepped up and had come out as an emotional support for Janhvi, Khushi and Boney, mending their relationship. Since then, Arjun, Anshula, Janhvi and Khushi are rebuilding their relationship and we totally love it.
In a conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Arjun Kapoor talked about his equation with his step-sisters, Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor. He shared that two bad moments in their lives got them together, and said, “There are two very bad moments in our lives which have got us together. We will always be like broken pieces; trying to fill up the gaps to be in each other’s life. We are a support system to each other.”
Talking about meeting his step-sisters, Janhvi and Khushi after 20 years of their birth, Arjun Kapoor said, “We met after 20 years of Janhvi and Khushi being born. I am 35 now, Anshula is 28 we are matured adults. And we are finding it quite tough to merge just like that. And I also think imperfection is quite fascinating, because then you learn to coexist and you learn to respect the differences. In a way we are very similar too as we have our dad’s genes.”
Arjun Kapoor also shared that it will be incorrect to call them a perfect family and they are trying to co-exist. He said, “Few things are difficult which you cannot articulate. I think for 4 of us (Anshula, Janhvi, Khushi, and Arjun) it’s incomplete in a certain way. If I say we are a perfect family that will be incorrect. It’s not about different opinions, we still are different families who are trying to merge and coexist with each other.”
Sharing that they are not one unit and have been trying to be in a happy space, Arjun added, “We all have amazing time when we are together but we are still not one unit. I don’t want to sell a fake lie that everything is perfect. It can’t be perfect, as we are still figuring each other out. There are days when my dad sits and talks a lot. There is a lot more exchange of love today and there is a concern we share for each other. I am sure it’s vice versa with Janhvi and Khushi. There are times when we don’t agree with each other’s point of view. But we are learning to co exist, we are learning to evolve to be in the happy space.”
On the professional front, Janhvi Kapoor will be next seen in Good Luck Jerry, whereas, Arjun Kapoor will next be seen in Bhoot Police and Ek Villain Returns!
