Why did Arjun Kapoor skip Sridevi’s birthday bash?

The Aurangzeb actor’s absence from his father Boney Kapoor’s lavish birthday celebration for wife Sri last weekend has raised eyebrows…

Sridevi turned 50 this year (August 13) and to bring in the gorgeous actor’s milestone birthday, loving husband Boney Kapoor hosted a lavish soiree at Club Alibii, Colaba (Mumbai) on August 16. Decked in a floral Prabal Gurung ensemble, the birthday girl looked svelte and stunning, with her elder daughter Jhanvi Kapoor by her side. Boney personally invited B-town friends and colleagues Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Anupam Kher, Rakesh Roshan, Hema Malini, Juhi Chawla, Fardeen Khan, Riteish and his wife Genelia D’Souza, Sohail Khan, Satish Kaushik and cricketer Yuvraj Singh, among others.

The fond husband, we are told, played the perfect host and personally attended to guests who turned up to wish their – and ours too! – favourite actor. But the absence of a certain young male Kapoor at the royal gathering raised eyebrows. Hmmm… you guessed right! While Boney, his brothers Anil Kapoor and wife Sunita and Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep, and his daughters Jhanvi and Khushi posed like a ‘picture perfect’ family for the shutterbugs, the gathered media and guests were amazed at son Arjun Kapoor’s absence.

Our chirpy buddy present at the grand celebration told us that Arjun was in town that night, but chose not to attend the party hosted by his dad. “I guess Arjun isn’t very cordial with Sridevi and so he decided to give the party a miss. At this year’s IIFA awards ceremony he was present at the red carpet area, but entered only after Boney and Sri walked in. It seems he’s trying his best to avoid being spotted together with them.” Hmmmm….

There have been rumours about Arjun playing the protagonist in his father’s production Mr India 2 with Sridevi and chacha Anil Kapoor, but if he doesn’t wish to be even seen with the Hawa Hawaai actor in the same frame, then we really wonder how he will share screen space with her in the sequel. Oops, we forgot… if he’s playing Mr India, then obviously he shouldn’t be worried about being seen with the English Vinglish star – after all, the lead of the super-successful film did his best work while invisible!Subscribe to me on YouTube

    I wonder how people expect Arjun to b present for Sri’s b’day. At one time this woman has given his mother enough grief of a life time. His growing years sans his father’s affection, all because Boney left them them in a lurch for Sri. How can the children forget it.

    It is none of your or my business talk on these issue.

    Probably they all need red carpet type of attention, and thought they wont get it here and skip all together. Stupid bull-headed people. They want royal welcome for them only. What a pathetic people are this ontourage.

    It is very obvious, which son will attend the birthday party of his homebreaker step-mother. This Boney Kapoor is a loser and Sridevi an oppurtunist. No woman with a heart will ever think of destroying the happiness of a family, but Sridevi all knows is money.

      Arjun you did good … well done
      carry on…………………… till the life end

  • Sridevi

    This thing is nothing but a home wrecker who Boney got for the bargain basement price of 11 lakhs. As far as acting goes all it does is thrust its chest, pout, whine, stutter, and make faces like someone who escaped a psych ward. It is just a pile of Kmart extensions, a face painted with a gallon of war paint, and a nose held by scissors, string, and a prayer. I didn’t care for the ugly Prabal Gurug dress but it actually made the dress look even uglier. Notice how I referred to her as “it” because she is really nothing but a snake. I guess life does imitate art at times!!!

    Naturally Boney fell for the lovely Sridevi.
    Otherwise there is no way Sridevi would have gone to the extent to marry a married person.She has had ample participation in films with similar episodes would have consented to build a family of her own with a married man knowing very well about the step children. Please do not blame the women folks for all the maniacs around there!!!!!
