Arjun Kapoor has always spoken fondly of his sister Anshula Kapoor and is no secret that he is absolutely protective of her. Arjun often applauds and feels grateful to Anushula as she sacrificed a career in the US for his well-being. Earlier in an interview, Arjun had opened up about what scared him most after the death of his mother Mona Shourie. Mona and Boney Kapoor had separated in 1996 and married actor Sridevi.
In an interview with Huffington Post, Arjun had said that his sister Anshula had stood by him like a rock. He revealed that Anshula went through worse as she was younger than him, “I still had 11 years with my father living in the house. I had my mother living with me for 25 years but she only got 20. Imagine a child who has been through a life where the father couldn’t be physically around all the time after the age of five. And the mother who was there physically ill all the time and then after 20 years, she wasn’t there. Imagine the psychological scarring of that child. She’s still more mature, very well-educated, honest and more sincere than me.”
Arjun said that he was worried about he would take care of Anshula who was so young when their mother Mona passed away. Arjun said that it felt like having a child when you are least prepared, “Mum passed away, my only thought was how will I take care of her? I was prepared to take care of myself, how I would take care of Anshula? It’s like having a child when you’re least prepared. She has been my child in the sense; she’s somebody who I am the most protective about. She completed her graduation in the US and passed with flying colours. This was during my film release. She came back to be with me when she could’ve gotten a great job abroad. Till today, she doesn’t accept that she did it for me.”
