After Bollywood’s legendary actress Sridevi left the mortal world, we all noticed a sudden transformation of Arjun Kapoor into a protective brother. He opened himself up to share all the pain of his half-sisters Janhvi & Khushi with whom he never shared a nice bond before.
From being there by the side of family during all the rituals, to being a force of Janhvi wherever she needed, Arjun has proved to be a “Aadarsh Bhai” recently.
During an interaction with Hindustan Times recently, Arjun was asked about his changed equation with Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. Giving a very sensible answer to the question, 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.”
He further 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.”
Further talking about the complexity of emotions, 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].
Talking about Janhvi’s debut with Dhadak, he said-
“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.”
Isn’t that so lovely?
