Arjun Kapoor is currently winning hearts with his latest outing, that is, Sardar Ka Grandson. The actor was last seen in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and before that Panipat. Recently, Arjun Kapoor addressed his producer-father, Boney Kapoor's second wedding with late superstar actress Sridevi. Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor are Boney Kapoor's kids from his first marriage to Mona Shourie Kapoor. Arjun has been very close to his mother and misses her a lot every day. The actor in an interview shared that he can't say what happened with him and his family back then was 'okay' but he added that he understands why his father fell in love with the English Vinglish actress.
In an interview with Film Companion, Arjun Kapoor credited his mom's upbringing for him being able to stand strong along his father's side when he and his step-sisters, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor, lost Sridevi. He said, "My mother's upbringing came in my head. She would've told me to be by my father's side regardless of what obstacles we face, because of a choice he made where he fell in love. And I respect my father for falling in love again. Because love is complex. And we would be silly and churlish sitting here in 2021 saying that you only fall in love once. It's very Bollywood-ized. Love is complex, love is complicated, love isn't always about being in love."
He added, "It's about compatibility, there is friendship, there is saturation. There is unfortunate frustration, people go through different phases in life. You could have been in love with somebody, and you can fall in love with somebody after that, and that has to be understood. I don't agree... I can't say I'm okay with what my father did because as a child I felt the repercussions, but I understand it. I can't say 'theek hai, hota hai (It's fine, these things happen)', because I will always wonder. But when I rationalize it as an older person who's dealing with his own relationship highs and lows, you understand."
The actor said he may not understand what his mom and father would have been dealing with back when their separation happened, but he still follows his mother's heartfelt wish, which is, "You try and be a good son because that's what my mother would want."
