Janhvi said, “I think it would have been an impossibility to have to go through that without Anshula didi and Arjun bhaiya. Nothing can make up for the loss that I have endured I think. But it’s a new dynamic. I think I am a different person.”
Janhvi Kapoor also spoke about the person that she was when her mother was around and shared that remembering that life now feels like a “fantasy”. “It almost feels that the person I was when mom was around was a fantasy. And the life I had then was a fantasy. I mean, of course, there were issues like every family has, but it was idyllic and it seems almost like a dream.”
When Karan Johar asked her if her dream shattered, Janhvi said, “The reality that I am living now is so anchored. It feels secure only because of Arjun Bhaiya and Anshula didi. I’d like to think that I have retained and preserved whatever she has instilled in me but it almost hurts to remember the person that I was because it was different.”
Jahnvi Kapoor further shared that she is happier than she has been in a while but confessed that she is yet to deal with her loss. “I don’t think I have dealt with it to be honest, and I should but I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time,” she said.
Janhvi Kapoor’s father Boney Kapoor was earlier married to Mona Kapoor. Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor are Boney’s children from his first marriage.
