Half Girlfriend's Arjun Kapoor OPENS UP About His Half Sister, Jhanvi Kapoor!

Half Girlfriend

Arjun Kapoor, first born of filmmaker Bonney Kapoor, doesn't share a warm equation with his stepmom Sridevi is known to most by now. When the actor, who is in the news for his recently released film Half Girlfriend, was recently asked about his equation with his step sisters Jhanvi and Khushi Kapoor, he voiced - We don't really meet and spend time together so it doesn't really exist." Well, that's one brutally honest statement.

In an interview to a magazine, Boney had said, "She (Sridevi) constantly checks with me about Arjun and Anshula (Arjun’s sister)."

Whereas when Arjun was asked about Sridevi, he has voiced - "My relationship with her would never be normal. She is just my father's wife and nothing beyond that. My mother Mona Kapoor taught me never to disrespect anyone. I would never be able to live with them like a normal family does but I hold no grudge against anyone."

Arjun shared a very close bond with his biological mother, Mona Shourie Kapoor, who died due to multiple organ failures after battling with cancer and blood pressure on 25 March 2012.

While talking about his mother's death, Arjun has voiced in an interview - "How do I reconcile with the fact that she’s not here to see that I have created an independent identity for myself, that I run a house, that I’ve grown up to become everything she wanted me to become? For all the sacrifices she has made for me, there is something as payback which sits here right now as I speak to you. I would have liked her to see that. I wish I was in a position where I could tell her that I have managed to make you proud, Ma. There’s no respite from the death of a mother. I always tell people that you are allowed to take your parents for granted to a certain degree but don’t underestimate the power of having them around. They are your backbone. You think it’s there but imagine one day it cracks — you are bound to fall. I have lived my life balancing without a backbone for the last 5 years."

Those are some powerful words drenched in emotions. We hope and with that Arjun finds the strength to move on from this personal tragedy the weight of which still resides deep within him.
