Arjun Kapoor has turned out to be a doting elder brother for Janhvi and Khushi. Ever since their mother, actress Sridevi, passed away earlier this year, Arjun has stood with them like a rock. He has been very supportive of the entire family and also helped his father, Boney Kapoor, come over the huge loss in whichever way possible. Now, talking to a leading daily, Arjun spoke in detail about his relationship with Janhvi and Khushi. He mentioned all of them are trying to build a good family and have never been pretentious at it.
Arjun talked to Hindustan Times recently and answered a question about his evolving bond with the two sisters. He said, “It’s something that has been growing and still evolving. I’ve been very honest about it. I’ve not made any pretense saying that we’re a happy family and we’ve sorted everything. So, I don’t care what people think; I just want them [my sisters] to be okay. It’s my job to be a good son to my father and the byproduct of that is I’ve managed to find two more sisters; they allow me to call them my sisters and that’s very large-hearted on their part”.

Arjun, whose last release — Namastey England, bombed at the Box Office, also talked about the work-related advice he gives to Janhvi. He said he has always asked her to take criticism positively and to learn from what the audience has to say about her. He said, “I always tell her when there’s work criticism coming, you’ve to put your head down and accept it if it’s coming from an honest place. The audience is paying money and if they don’t appreciate something we must try and learn”.

Arjun also has a special place for the family picture he posted on the social media from the wedding reception of his cousin, Sonam Kapoor. He said he felt it was the right time to let the world know that they are trying to be a happy family and they are together in everything. He said, “We took that picture together because I felt it was the right thing to do for us to put up a united stand saying we are in it together, to figure it out. That’s the emotion we felt after all that transpired. That’s the only thing we have done as a unit to give you all – an image of saying that we are trying. And that is the truth — we are trying”.
