Arjun Kapoor gets candid on nepotism, losing his mom and standing by Boney Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor
"Yeh toh Boney Kapoor ka beta hai, isse kya hoga"
Arjun Kapoor gets all candid while addressing his highs and lows in his Bollywood journey in a recent Interview with Pinkvilla. Right from being ‘nobody’ to being the national crush after his debut 8 years back in Ishqzaade. The journey has been topsy-turvy but there’s always success longing , after all the hardships.
Despite being a star kid, Arjun Kapoor’s life hasn’t been a conventionally privileged one. In fact, after his mom and dad’s separation, Arjun has been through a lot of unknown hurdles and emotional turmoil. The actor shares how he had to suddenly grow up owing to the situation at home. Arjun says , “He’s seen the lowest of the lows”. From being mature at the age of 10 to losing his backbone a few days before his debut on the big screen, It’s been a hell of a journey.
It had been an ’emotional hell’ when he lost his mom and trying to figure out a way to take care of him and his sister Anshula financially. His mother’s demise uprooted him but also made him stand alone on his legs even when his backbone(mom) snapped.
“All the success and all the failures, and all the love and haterade and everything is bearable but what’s not bearable is the fact that I don’t have her.”
The actor also revealed a few preconceived notions that people had with Arjun being a star kid. ‘Yeh toh Bonney Kapoor ka beta hai, isse kya hoga.” People judged him by his surname. To which Arjun clarified that people judging him for his surname weren’t worth winning over, rather he would applaud people who judged him for his arrogant behavior and he would work towards mending that. That phase had been an ’emotional hell’ as he was lost inside and trying to mend his broken pieces.
Being addressed as arrogant and moody, ‘maar peet karne wala banda’ as he doidn’t take efforts in wishing people or getting to know them. Judgments and criticism sprawling at him. There’s lot more than we know about this star kid.
Arjun says, ‘He didn’t have enough people around me, when it happened to me.” However, after the untimely death of Sridevi, Arjun lend his support in whatever capacity he could and be there by his father Boney Kapoor and sisters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor which eventually gave the siblings a chance to know each other .
