Arjun Kapoor opens up on standing by his dad, Janhvi & Khushi’s side post-Sridevi’s death

Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor is known to be extremely protective of his family. While his parents separated when he was quite young, his mom has battled against all odds to bring him and his sister Anshula Kapoor up. Under unfortunate situations, Mona Kapoor lost her life just before Arjun was stepping into the film industry.  This was during his debut in “Ishqzaade” opposite Parineeti Chopra and the film was a huge success but sadly his mother couldn’t see it. Like anyone who’s lost a parent, it was a difficult time for Arjun and he referred it to a phase of ’emotional hell’ that he had to go through. Unfortunately, the family battled another shock in 2018 when news of Sridevi’s untimely demise shocked the entire nation. During this hard time, Arjun decided to stand by his father Boney Kapoor, and his sisters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor during their moment of crisis. 

Recently in an interview Arjun was asked about it and as to what led him to take this decision. Arjun said, “You don’t always connect to dots. I reacted to situations the way they happened in real-time. A couple of years now today, it’s easier for people to assess. My mother taught me to be a good human being, to be as decent to other people as possible. At that moment, I felt it right to lend my support in whatever capacity I could and be there to start with for my father. It also meant that we got a chance to know Khushi and Janhvi. The maturity comes from the fact that I have seen life. If my life was shaken and uprooted at one point and if I can stabilize someone else’s to make sure they don’t go through the hell that I did.”  He further added, “I know that when something like this hits you, you need people around you. I didn’t have enough people when it happened to me. I wish I had someone sensible to guide me through it too. I hope I can part some wisdom and help Janhvi handle the bad days. I take tremendous pride in being my mother’s son. If I’m able to put the unfortunate part of my life to use to make someone else’s life better, I would always do that.”
