A night before Janhvi Kapoor’s Bollywood debut movie, Dhadak’s trailer launch, Arjun Kapoor’s wish to his sister made headlines. Post Sridevi’s untimely death in Dubai, Arjun has been supportive of Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor, daughters of his father Boney Kapoor. Ever since then, Arjun has been by their side like a rock.
While in a conversation with Hindustan Times, Arjun Kapoor has now spoken about this changed equation with sister- Janhvi & Khushi. When the actor was asked about his message to Janhvi he said, “It’s difficult for me to give a one-off reply, or in a ‘by the way’ manner. I actually need a lot of time to process what has happened. But I just did what I felt impulsively at that point. Between me and my sister (Anshula), we felt that it was the right thing to do. Also, it all happened after we consulted my maasi (maternal aunt), because I’ll always need her consent [for certain things] for her to be fine about our actions.”
Arjun added, “Honestly, we’re still figuring things out and picking up the pieces. I’m a really emotional person, so my emotions do come out [especially on social media]. So, you can say that my protective side comes around in those moments. I’ll continue to be that way as a brother and as somebody who’s always looking out for their best interest. But I still don’t have answers to a lot of things. Too much has happened and I wouldn’t wish these things even on my worst enemies. I’ve experienced it first-hand, so if I encompass everything in one answer, it would make the matter very small.”
Later, when he was asked if these things will give Janhvi and Khushi strength, he said, “Maybe, when the time is right, and when I’m able to articulate my feelings better and give it some kind of shape, I’ll talk about it in detail. But right now, there are too many emotions to feel. Also, as somebody who has always been extremely close to his father, I want Janhvi and Khushi to be absolutely okay as much as I would want Anshula to be fine. But the things that have led us to these circumstances are extremely tragic; that’s why I need some more time to figure out what life holds [for us].
Arjun Kapoor even revealed that he is looking forward to Janvhi Kapoor’s maiden film Dhadak and at times the actress asks him about his early days’ interviews when he marked his debut with Ishaqzaade (2017). “I’m looking forward to watching Dhadak, and I’m very happy that people have reacted so positively to the trailer and also [to] Janhvi. She has started doing her [promotional] interviews, and she was at home a few days back to discuss how I went about my interviews during Ishaqzaade (2012; his debut film). She is a very inquisitive child that way, who’s learning how to go about things. This is a good time for her to focus on work."
Atta boy! Bhai ho to aisa!
