If you happen to have half-siblings and are not in good terms with them, its time to retrospect! Bollywood and real-life instances of the industry, over the years, have given us major goals about maintaining relationships. A pair of half-siblings, Arjun-Anshula Kapoor and Janhvi-Khushi Kapoor, who once weren’t in talking terms with each other, have stood by one another ever since a cloud of sadness passed through their family last year.

Time and again in interviews, Janhvi has shared how much in awe of, is she and her sister, Khushi Kapoor with Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor. We have often seen them chilling together and Arjun given the wittiest in the lot, never fails to take a dig at his half-sister, Janhvi. Remember, when Janhvi had gone to Italy to attend the engagement of Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal, the Dhadak actress had donned a beautiful black gown, and posted a picture of herself, standing behind some bicycles? Pulling Janhvi’s leg, Arjun had commented, “You cycled to Como na” on the picture, to which baby sister, Janhvi wittily replied, “@arjunkapoor had to do my cardio”.
And once again, a series of witty replies is back! Janhvi Kapoor posted her first-ever, makeup tutorial which she captioned as, “My first ever makeup tutorial is LIVE! It’s my favourite go-to simple, fresh and glowyy look. Watch the full tutorial on mine and @NykaaBeauty’s IGTV & shop all these products on @MyNykaa #NykaaCosmetics #GRWM #MakeupLook #MakeupLookWithJanhvi.” In the comments section, Arjun wrote that he too, wants makeup lessons from his sister while her co-star-cum-‘friend’, Ishaan Khatter offered her a ‘cookiki’! Checkout the video and a screenshot of the same below:
Even during Raksha Bandhan 2018, Arjun ensured that he didn’t let it go down easy with Janhvi. Sharing a ramp-picture of the Takht actress from a Lakme Fashion Week walk, Arjun posted a fun Instagram story with the words, “@janhvikapoor's expression when she's pretending she likes working out over eating. Clearly, it’s the Raksha Bandhan weekend vibe being strong on my timeline today”, written atop the story.

The world got to know a lot about Janhvi and the Kapoor family, thanks to the Dhadak promotions. At an interview, Janhvi spoke about what Arjun and Anshula means to her and Khushi. Therein, she had shared, “The only reason we can stand strong after whatever happened is because of the kind of love and support Arjun bhaiyya and Anshula didi [half-siblings] have been giving us [she and her younger sister, Khushi]. It’s a family dynamic that I relish. I am very thankful for them. I couldn’t have asked for a better brother and a better sister. They have given us a lot of strength. He is a very wise man and has given tips like, ‘just be honest, be yourself and be respectful towards people.’ Somehow, when he says it, I take it like the gospel truth.”
Sharing about how their family united after Sridevi’s death, Janhvi had revealed, “It’s made us feel safe and secure. I think, even for Papa, it’s a source of comfort. It’s definitely tied us together. We’ve lost mom and I don’t think that’s a loss any of us will ever get over.” She further went to say that her mother was a constant inspiration for her, “That’s always been my motivation. I’m so proud of my parents. I need to make them as proud of me.”
Also revealing how and when Janhvi and Khushi started relying on Arjun and Anshula, the Dhadak star shared with Filmfare, “It comes from seeking a sense of protection. A significant figure in our lives- my mother- wasn’t there anymore. Whom could we rely on? So, Khushi and I found ourselves leaning on them. A strong trust was forged between us. They’re so chilled out, such gracious and strong people, who encourage you and are real with you. We’re blessed.” (Next Read: Neha Kakkar Requests Fans Not To Blame Himansh Kohli For Their Breakup, Says I Never Got Betrayed)
Janhvi also shared about the kind of advices she gets from her star family, “Arjun bhaiyya has given me advice on everything that comes with this profession. He’s gained a plethora of experience. His advice is to remain honest. He says if you love your work, then you just need to keep reminding yourself about that love and nothing else.” The 21-year-old also shared that her star sister, Sonam Kapoor has been an exemplar of self-respect and chachu Anil Kapoor always advices them to work hard.
