Arjun Kapoor has never liked his stepmother, Sridevi. However, after her sad demise, he tried being with his stepsisters Khushi and Janhvi and tried being a really good brother to them. Recently, in an interview with famous entertainment brand Bollywood Bubble, Arjun recalled his experience when his best friend asked about his new step mother and how he dealt with the dilemma. He said- “I have gone through personal anguish. I have gone through personal trauma. I have gone through personal upheavals…Growing up as a kid I had to go through the separation of parents…At that point, it was very hard because my father was a high profile man…and the woman he chose to be with was the biggest superstar India has seen if you combine perhaps all the stardom of all the young actors today you would have her star status. So it was very very high profile.”
“To be asked by kids, your best friends in school ‘how does it feel having a new mom?’ it’s not easy. It makes you go into a shell. You become more vulnerable about things. Again this is not to create sympathy or a sad story. This is the reality…I fought through it.” He added.
Arjun turned 36th on June 26 and he also shared a picture saying :Was caught lost in thought at the birthday lunch…What a difference a year makes…A year ago I was deflated, tired & confused, today I sit ready with new energy, vigour & determination to face any curveball life throws my way… I just want to acknowledge all those close to me who have believed in me, supported me & cared for me. My work mates, fans, friends, family & my baby thank u for standing by my side. Photo credit – @malaikaaroraofficial (she makes me look good).”
Arjun has not made enough in his career though he keeps on being in news due to his love affair with Malaika Arora.
