Janhvi Kapoor on the change of bond with her half-brother Arjun Kapoor: “We have addressed the luggage we were carrying”
Actor Janhvi Kapoor has revealed that once she started spending more time with her half-siblings Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor, their relationship evolved and they grew closer. They also touched on the baggage of the past that they all once carried. The relationship between half-siblings is more “organic” now, and they often meet for dinner parties, not out of coercion, but out of a desire to form a family.
In an interview with Bazaar magazine, Janhvi spoke about their current equation. She said, “I don’t think there is much you can count on in life… however, family is the only thing you can count on. For me, that’s family. Security and consistency; it’s home. Arjun and Anshula are the children of Boney Kapoor’s first marriage to Mona Shourie, while Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor are from his second marriage to Sridevi. After Sridevi’s death in 2018, the barriers were swept aside and Arjun, Anshula stood by Janhvi and Khushi’s side during the traumatic phase.
Janhvi Kapoor, also spoke about the level of security she feels around Arjun and Anshula. “It’s not like we go to each other’s every day or know every detail of each other’s life. But I felt instant security with Arjun bhaiya and Anshula didi, a sense of comfort, ”Janhvi added.
The loving relationship didn’t happen overnight, and they worked hard to strengthen their new connection. Janhvi said, “We started by making plans in the first two months, but now we get together for family dinners every two or three weeks. It doesn’t give the impression, “Oh, we have to make an effort or we have to meet,” there is a willingness to meet as a family. It looks a lot more organic now and I’m not sure if we’re similar in terms of personalities [even Khushi and I are very different from each other], but a lot of the luggage we used to carry was handled after we spent time with each other.
Arjun, who was also in the same interview, added, “Family is a comfort, you should be comfortable enough to just be with and around them. There should be comfort even in fighting or anger, there should be no fear. You should be able to be your real naked self with your family. This is why your friends are also your family because you can be yourself with them. It’s a real connection, which means a lot to me.
Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor first appeared together on Koffee With Karan in 2018, where they opened up about becoming a family after years of separation.
