Bollywood actor, Arjun Kapoor poured his heart out on his mother, Mona Shourie Kapoor's ninth death anniversary. There isn't a day when Arjun Kapoor doesn't miss his mother's presence in his life. There is no one on this earth that can love us like our mothers, and we can only understand their value when we are away from them. And no one understands this better than Arjun, who is still grieving over his mother's untimely demise.
Arjun Kapoor is the first child of filmmaker, Boney Kapoor and his first wife, Mona Shourie Kapoor. However, Arjun didn't have a perfect childhood. He had learnt life's hardest lesson when his father, Boney Kapoor had left his first wife, Mona to marry Sridevi. But Arjun's entire world had gotten over when his mother had left for the heavenly abode after giving a tough fight to cancer.
March 25, 2021, marks the ninth death anniversary of Arjun Kapoor's mother, Mona Kapoor. The actor took to his Instagram handle and penned a 'miss you' note for her. He posted a picture of his mother, and wrote, "It’s been 9 years, it’s not fair ya I miss u Maa come back na please... I miss u worrying about me, fusing over me, I miss seeing ur name calling on my phone, I miss coming home & seeing u... I miss ur laugh, I miss ur smell, I miss being called Arjun with ur voice echoing in my ear. I really miss you Mom. I hope ur ok wherever u are, I’m trying to be ok too, on most days I manage but I miss u. come back na." Check it out below:
Arjun Kapoor's sister, Anshula Kapoor also shared a picture of her mother's framed portrait, which was hung on one of the walls in their home. Along with it, she bared her heart out and described her journey without her. Anshula's note can be read as "9 years ago today I held your hand for the last time. I have conversations with you in my heart almost every day, but I would give up anything to have just 1 more conversation with you in person, where I can actually hear your voice. 9 years without you is already a lifetime. I miss your voice, your hugs, your laughter, your advice, your smile, your ability to take away my dark clouds, your smell, your love. I miss how safe you made me feel, how brave you made me feel, how loved you made me feel. I miss you Ma."
Arjun's mother's sudden demise still haunts him. We remember in an interview with Pinkvilla, the actor had bared his heart out and had said that it still hurts him every day. He misses his mom every day. After all, just when he was going to stand up on his own two feet, his mother had left him. Arjun had further added, "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."
Earlier, in a media interaction, Arjun had talked about the void that his mother's death had left in his heart. He had said, "How do I reconcile with the fact that she’s not here to see that I have created an independent identity for myself, that I run a house, that I’ve grown up to become everything she wanted me to become? For all the sacrifices she has made for me, there is something as payback which sits here right now as I speak to you. I would have liked her to see that. I wish I was in a position where I could tell her that I have managed to make you proud, Ma. There’s no respite from the death of a mother. I always tell people that you are allowed to take your parents for granted to a certain degree but don’t underestimate the power of having them around. They are your backbone. You think it’s there but imagine one day it cracks — you are bound to fall. I have lived my life without a backbone for the last 5 years."
Well, we all can understand the pain of Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor!
