Boney Kapoor Became Teary-Eyed As He Recalled Wifey, Sridevi Standing By Him During Financial Crisis

Boney Kapoor has been one of the prominent filmmakers in Indian cinema. He is credited to have delivered some of the most iconic films at the box-office, including Mr. India, Wanted, Woh Saat Din, Hum Paanch, Judaai among so many others. Despite such a prolific professional life, it is his personal life that has time and again been a part of gossip columns. For the unversed, Boney was earlier married to Mona Shourie, and the duo is parents to their children, Arjun and Anshula. However, a few years later, Boney separated from Mona and got married to Sridevi in 1996. The couple is blessed with two daughters, Janhvi and Khushi.

Boney Kapoor recalled dealing with tough times with heavy financial crisis

In one of his older interactions with Komal Nahta, Boney Kapoor reminisced one of the toughest setbacks in his career, when he suffered from a major financial crisis. He frankly remarked that all of it was his own mistake, as he let his passion be driven off by indulgence. Boney stated that it wasn’t unusual for him, since many actors as well as filmmakers in the past, have stumbled upon similar circumstances in their lives. Revealing his key takeaways from that difficult past, he stated:

“It was my mistake so, of course, I was the one who bore the brunt of it. I was stressed, of course, but I was confident that I would pay it all off. It took a little longer but I’ve paid everybody off. Plus, who doesn’t go through such problems? In our industry, everyone from Raj Kapoor to Amitabh Bachchan has gone through ups and downs. It happens, especially, to those filmmakers who are passionate. But the fact is, that they overcame it. I’ve also overcome it, and at the same time, I’ve made up my mind, I’ll remain passionate, but I won’t become indulgent.”

“God supported me, my family supported me, and Sri supported me in a very big way. She was like a rock. She understood me. She knew that I hadn’t used the money for the wrong reasons. It wasn’t like I lost money in gambling or anything. I didn’t do anything wrong. And the mistakes I made, I understand them. If you don’t have support from your wife, you’re…”
