Arjun Kapoor says ‘disagree’ with father Boney Kapoor leaving mum Mona to marry Sridevi: ‘But I get it’
Actor Arjun Kapoor has spoken of his father Boney Kapoor leaving his mother Mona Shourie and tying the knot with Sridevi in 1996. Arjun, whose last film Sardar Ka Grandson is currently airing on Netflix, said that “love is complex”.
Speaking to Film Companion, Arjun was outspoken about his relationship with his father, which became strained after his parents separated. “It’s a matter of compatibility, there is friendship, there is saturation. There is an unfortunate frustration, people go through different phases of life. You could have been in love with someone, and you can fall in love with someone after that, and that has to be understood, ”Arjun said in the interview.
He added: “I can’t say that I agree 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 okay how such things happen), because I’ll always be wondering. But when I rationalize it as a senior who faces their own relationship ups and downs, you get it.
Arjun, who caught my eye when he stood as a pillar of support for Boney Kapoor after Sridevi’s disappearance in 2018, the actor frankly said, “My mother’s education came into my head. She would have told me to be by my dad’s side no matter what obstacles we face, because of a choice he made where he fell in love. And I respect my dad for falling in love again. Because love is complex. And we’d be silly and rude to sit here in 2021 saying you only fall in love once. It’s very Bollywood. Love is complex, love is complicated, love is not always about being in love.
Arjun, who has repeatedly written heartfelt notes about his mother’s disappearance at every moment of life, concluded, “You are trying to be a good son, because that’s what my mother would want.”
Boney kapoor has two daughters with Sridevi – actor Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. The two girls now share a good relationship with Arjun and his sister Anshula.
Arjun’s mother, Mona Shourie, died a month before the release of her first film Ishaqzaade in 2012.
