Just like any human being, actor Arjun Kapoor too faced family problems in the past. Be it his relationship with his half-sisters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor or his bond with his father and producer Boney Kapoor; Arjun faced ups and downs with his family. Speaking of which, in an interview with a fashion magazine, the actor said he feels that had it not been for his equation with Janhvi and Khushi, he ‘would have resented many things’ and ‘never felt the need to reconnect with his father Boney Kapoor at this level’.
"I’ve not lived with my father as much as I would have liked to. I keep getting told that I am like him, but I don’t see it. Through meeting Janhvi and Khushi, and breaking that barrier, I have now been able to build a more authentic relationship with him. We have all confronted many of our demons. It has to do with letting go, which is very cathartic...it is strangely therapeutic to just sit around and talk rubbish, and realise that you were holding onto things, unknowingly or knowingly, because you were supposed to,” he told Harper's Bazaar India.
“But I love my father more because of both of them. It is complex. I have been able to see my father in a different light. If I didn’t share this equation with Janhvi and Khushi, I would have resented many things and never felt the need to reconnect with him at this level,” he added.
Earlier, in another interview, the Ishqzaade actor was talking about his ‘personal anguish’. Recalling the time when his school friends used to ask about ‘new mom’ (late Sridevi), he said ‘it was very hard.’
