Actor Arjun Kapoor recalled when his best friends at school asked him about his “new mom,” the late actor Sridevi. He said that as he grew up he went through “personal anguish, trauma and upheaval.”
Arjun Kapoor is the son of Boney Kapoor and Mona Shourie Kapoor. He also has a sister Anshula Kapoor. Boney then married Sridevi and had two children with her: Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor.
Speaking to Bollywood Bubble, Arjun said, “I went through personal angst. I went through personal trauma. I went through personal upheaval … Growing up, I had to go through parental separation. … At that point it was very difficult because my dad was a high profile man … and the woman he chose to be with was the greatest superstar India had seen if you combine maybe all the fame of all the young actors today, you would have star status. So that was very, very high profile. “
He continued, “Some kids, your best friends at school ask him ‘what’s it like to have a new mom? it is not easy. It puts you in a shell. You become more vulnerable about things. Again, this is not to create sympathy or a sad story. This is reality … I fought against it. “
Arjun celebrated his 36th birthday on June 26. Days later, sharing a photo of himself on Instagram, he wrote: “Got caught lost in thought at the birthday lunch … What a difference a year makes … a year ago I was deflated, tired and confused, today I am ready with new energy, vigor and determination to face any curve life throws at me … I just want to thank everyone close to me who believed in me, have supported and taken care of me. My co-workers, fans, friends, family and baby thank you for being by my side. Photo credit – @malaikaaroraofficial (she makes me look good). “
