Arjun Kapoor opens up on his previous equation with Janhvi Kapoor, reveals 'there were silences'


After the untimely demise of legendary actress Sridevi in 2018, her daughters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor found strength in Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor. Arjun, who has been through the pain of losing a parent at a young age, stepped forward for his half-sisters. Since then, producer Boney Kapoor's children share a great bond. For the first time ever, Janhvi and Arjun shot for a magazine cover. Talking to a lifestyle magazine, Arjun and Janhvi opened up about how their relationship has evolved over the years.

The Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar actor said, "There were silences. We would meet, but there was no communication worth quantifying." The Roohi star shared her point of view and told, "I have learnt so much from my family. We have the same father, we have the same blood...." Teasing Janhvi, Arjun quipped, "Glad you caught onto that [laughs]" The actress continued, "and that is something no-one can take away from us. It’s not like we go to each other’s homes every day, or know every detail about each other’s lives. But I felt an instant security with Arjun bhaiya and Anshula didi, a feeling of comfort. I wake up every day knowing that they always have my back. And I can say this with more conviction about them than anyone else in my life."

Arjun and Anshula are the children from Boney’s first marriage with Mona Shourie. Mona passed away in 2012 due to cancer. Post Sridevi's demise, Arjun and Anshula have stood by Janhvi and Khushi like pillars. 

In a previous interview, Arjun spoke about his equation with Janhvi and Khushi. He told, "If I say we are a perfect family, that will be incorrect. It’s not about different opinions, we still are different families who are trying to merge and coexist with each other. We all have amazing time when we are together but we are still not one unit. I don’t want to sell a fake lie that everything is perfect. It can’t be perfect, as we are still figuring each other out..."
