Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor, who didn't share a cordial relationship with Sridevi and her daughters Jhanvi and Khushi have grown closer to his step-sisters like never before.
However, according to sources, Sridevi's sudden demise has also brought Arjun closer to his father, Boney Kapoor.
He recently shared a quote on Instagram in his first post after his stepmother Sridevi's death. Arjun quoted RM Drake and stated, "You are brave because life gives you every reason to want to give up and still, you rise, you pick yourself and carry on."
Deccan Chronicle quoted a family friend as saying, "Arjun, along with Anil and Sanjay Kapoor, has been the pillar of strength for Boney at the most trying time of his life. Arjun even cancelled the scheduled shoot of Vipul Shah's Namaste Canada to rush to be by his father's side."
Arjun's mother Mona Kapoor died when he was young and was about to make his Bollywood debut with Ishaqzaade. Now, Sridevi has passed away just before the release of her elder daughter Janhvi's debut film Dhadak.
Arjun and Janhvi were never seen together at any event or family function. But the actor was seen standing by Boney's side and behind his step-sisters during Sridevi's funeral.
Arjun's sister Anshula Kapoor also stood by her step-sisters during this phase. She even slammed a troll on Instagram that abused Janhvi and Khushi.
Recently, when an ardent fan of Arjun posted an abusive comment about Sridevi, Janhvi and Khushi, Anushula slammed the troller and also warned her followers to not use offensive words for her sisters.
On March 3, Sridevi's ashes were immersed in Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu, and on the next day, Bollywood celebs like Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli visited Boney Kapoor's residence in Mumbai to offer their condolences.
