Bollywood star Arjun Kapoor was last seen in Netflix’s film Sardar Ka Grandson wherein he shared the screen with Neena Gupta, Rakul Preet Singh, John Abraham, Aditi Rao Hydari, among others. Recently the actor opened up about how he handled the situation when his father, Boney Kapoor married Sridevi. He also talked about how he was always there for his sisters Janhvi and Khushi and his father when Sridevi died.
Recently, when Arjun Kapoor was in an interview with the Film Companion, the actor said, “My mother’s upbringing came in my head. She would’ve told me to be by my father’s side regardless of what obstacles we face, because of a choice he made where he fell in love. And I respect my father for falling in love again. Because love is complex. And we would be silly and churlish sitting here in 2021 saying that you only fall in love once. It’s very Bollywood-ised. Love is complex, love is complicated, love isn’t always about being in love.”
“It’s about compatibility, there is friendship, there is saturation. There is unfortunate frustration, people go through different phases in life. You could have been in love with somebody, and you can fall in love with somebody after that, and that has to be understood. I don’t agree… I can’t say I’m okay with what my father did, because as a child I felt the repercussions, but I understand it. I can’t say ‘theek hai, hota hai (It’s fine, these things happen)’, because I will always wonder. But when I rationalise it as an older person who’s dealing with his own relationship highs and lows, you understand.”
“You try and be a good son, because that’s what my mother would want”, Arjun Kapoor added.
