Actor Arjun Kapoor recently got candid about his struggles growing up as his best friends in school would ask him about his ‘new mom’, late actor Sridevi. He revealed that growing up, he went through ‘personal anguish, trauma and upheavals’.
Speaking about his parent’s separation Arjun 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.”
He continued, “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.”
Arjun Kapoor and his sister Anshula Kapoor are kids of Boney Kapoor and Mona Shourie Kapoor. Boney later married Sridevi and had two daughters with her, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor.
