Though Boney Kapoor was spotted having a ball of a time on his birthday, with his wife Sridevi and daughters Jhanvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor throwing a birthday bash for the famed producer, the party lacked the presence of his two brothers: Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor. The brothers haven’t been seen in any of the latest parties, may it be Diwali or birthdays. Boney too didn’t appear at his brother’s parties. One wonders why the three brothers wouldn’t make it to each other’s festive occasions as it is quite unusual for the Kapoors.

Regarding this, a family friend tells the Deccan Chronicle, “Boney’s relations with both his brothers have been deteriorating. Ever since Boney’s first wife Mona, who was loved by the entire Kapoor family, passed away, the strain in the relationship between Boney and his brothers has deepened. These days, Boney doesn’t visit Anil or Sanjay and they don’t visit him, even for family functions. As for Boney’s son Arjun and daughter Anshula, they’ve made it very clear that they do not want to be associated with Boney’s second family.” ALSO READ: Sridevi’s Latest Instagram Picture of Husband Boney Kapoor Kissing Her Adorably Is Breaking The Internet

And ironically enough, the it was Boney who bridged the differences between Sridevi and her sister. For now, we can only hope the Kapoor brothers patch up soon and return in their classic desi groove. Keep watching this space for more updates.
