The Ishaqzaade actor, Arjun Kapoor is one of the star kids, who has faced several internal troubles in his growing years. Apart from witnessing the separation of his parents, he lost his mother, Mona Kapoor, 45 days before the release of his debut film. Talking about his emotional journey, the actor told PinkVilla, “Of course it hurts and haunts me every day. I miss my mom every day. That’s something that won’t ever come back to me. Just when I was going to stand up on my own two feet, my backbone snapped. All the success and the failure, the love and hatred in these 8 years is all handle-able but what’s not handle-able is the fact that I don’t have her around me. Aap mujhe jitni nafraat doge chalega because I have seen the lowest lows in my life already. I lost my mother 45 days before I was about to embark on the toughest journey of my life where the world was going to see me. Everything else seems small in comparison.” Also Read – Arjun Kapoor opens up on standing by dad Boney Kapoor and sisters Khushi and Janhvi Kapoor post Sridevi’s untimely demise

Sitting at home missing work & being on set but safety first always. One has to pause sometimes, stop & soak it all in, take a moment & breathe after sprinting so much before we can even begin thinking of walking again… #mondaymusings #thinkingoutloud #selfieking #setlife #westilldonthaveatitle #quarantineandchill
He added, “Time doesn’t heal, you just get to learn how to deal with it better. I am not going to be the first or last person who will have to go through such a personal crisis and I don’t talk about it a negative way because I’m not looking for sympathy at all. So yeah, I go through my moments but that’s not for everybody to see. Even after 8 years, I come across people who tell me about how she was and their bond with her. She has left a pretty amazing legacy in Anshula and a decent enough one with me. Yes, there are genuine bits of anguish and pain but she has taught me to always put up a good fight. I’ve been doing that since I was very young.” Also Read – RIP Rishi Kapoor: Arjun Kapoor shares an emotional post for the legendary star, says ‘he had the most amazing way of showing warmth & love’
