Arjun Kapoor said that he wasn’t okay when his father Boney fell in love and got married to Sridevi.

He said he can’t change anything that has happened in the past but now he understands his father’s decision.

The relationship between Arjun and his father wasn’t good since Boney got married again to Janhvi’s mother Sridevi, but after the death of Sridevi, Arjun Kapoor started to mend the broken relationship with his dad.

In an interview, Arjun Kapoor talked about how he handled the situation when he found out the news of his father getting married again.

He told Film Companion, “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-ised. Love is complex, love is complicated, love isn’t always about being in love.”

He continued, “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 rationalise it as an older person who’s dealing with his own relationship highs and lows, you understand.”

He said that he can imagine his parents having gone through certain things that led to the situation transpiring as it did. “You try and be a good son, because that’s what my mother would want.”
