Bollywood actor, Arjun Kapoor often hits the headline for his relationship with Malaika Arora and his witty responses to all the online trolling he faces. In 2016, Malaika had called off her long-time marriage to actor, Arbaaz Khan, and the duo had got legally divorced in 2017. After their separation, Malaika had found love again in the arms of Arjun Kapoor. However, their relationship has always been the target of trolls and not only this, the netizens never miss a chance to hit Arjun's sisters, Anshula Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. In an interview, the actor recently opened up about his thoughts on this.
For the unversed, Arjun Kapoor and his sibling, Anshula Kapoor are the children of filmmaker-producer, Boney Kapoor and his first wife, Mona Shourie. After separating ways from Mona, Boney had tied the knot with Bollywood's legendary actress, Sridevi and together they had two daughters, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. After Sridevi's death, Arjun and Anshula had become the strongest support system for their father, Boney and their step-sisters, Janhvi and Khushi. Since then, the family of five has been united and is often spotted together.
In an interview with the Etimes, Arjun Kapoor was asked about his response to the trolling he and his family usually face. Due to his age gap with his girlfriend, Malaika Arora, and for body-shaming him and his sisters, Janhvi, Khushi and Anshula they are always under the radar of the online trollers. To this, Arjun mentioned that this trolling doesn't affect him badly, instead, it show the bad upbringing of the trollers. Following this, he added that if he does the same thing back to the trollers, the gossipmongers would also gossip about it in society. So Arjun asked a question to the trollers how they would feel if he wrote something about their mother, sister, daughter or other family members, and said:
"It shows their upbringing. It shows their thought process and it shows what they are made of. It doesn't reflect badly on me. It reflects badly on them. They can hide behind nameless facades eventually, they know who they are...They are living a fake life and typing stuff to get their frustration out. You also have to understand there is a lot of angst in this country about a lot of things and we are very easy targets...If I go to your (trolls) building and write something derogatory about you on your notice board, it will be gossiped about in society. So when you write such stuff about me, think about how it would feel if I write similar things about your mother, sister, daughter or any family member on your notice board."
Further, in the same conversation, Arjun explained how much his family used to go through while dealing with the hateful remarks. Mentioning his sister, Anshula Kapoor, her doting brother, added that she has to face a lot of trolling for being related to Arjun. Adding that he can give back to them equally, Arjun expressed:
"Imagine what people like us have to go through. I'm very thick-skinned. I've had my family members go through it because of me. My sister (Anshula Kapoor) had to suffer on the accord for me being Arjun Kapoor. It is not her fault. I don't have anything against people having an opinion but when they get personal, I just feel they have to introspect and look at the fact that they will not be able to cope with it if I had the ability. If I stand up in front of them and talk, I can give it back to them, they will not come and stand in front of me...People are just having fun at the risk of Bollywood."
Recently, a netizen had body-shamed Arjun Kapoor, saying he could never get in shape. Trolling Arjun and tagging his trainer, the social media user had commented, "Man you are a lucky trainer to get a client like this, you keep printing money boy, this guy can never get in shape. He is a rich guy with no mentality bro." However, the actor had also shut him up with his savage response. Arjun had also written a befitting reply to the troll in the comment section. Further, he had taken to his IG stories and had shared a screengrab of the comment along with his response and had again slammed the trollers with a caption atop it. His beau, Malaika Arora had also reshared the story on her IG stories and had strongly supported him with a note atop it. Check out:
