Ever since Boney Kapoor married a second time and moved out of his home with his first wife Mona and their two children Arjun and Anshula Kapoor, there was an unstated tension between Arjun and his father.
“Nothing that you could put your fingers on.There was no open hostility ,let alone disrespect. But Arjun never forgot or forgave his father for not being with them when he was growing up with his sister Anshula. Or when Arjun’s mother fell ill and passed away , even then Boney was not with his first family.These are not small betrayals.And they left an ineradicable hurt in Arjun,” says a close family friend.
In death, Sridevi has brought the father-son pair together like never before.
Says a family friend, “Arjun, along with Boney’s brothers Anil and Sanjay,has been a pillar of strength for Boney at this the most trying time of his life. He cancelled his shooting of Vipul Shah’s Namaste Canada to rush to be by his father’s side.”
