Half siblings Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor on their first magazine cover together spoke to Harper’s Bazaar about their familial relationships and bond. The duo chose black and white outfits and posed for photoshoots.
Talking about their relationship as siblings, Arjun said, “There were silences. We would meet, but there was no communication worth quantifying.”
Janhvi said, “I have learnt so much from my family. We have the same father, we have the same blood and that is something no-one can take away from us. It’s not like we go to each other’s homes every day, or know every detail about each other’s lives. But I felt an instant security with Arjun bhaiya and Anshula didi, a feeling of comfort. I wake up every day knowing that they always have my back. And I can say this with more conviction about them than anyone else in my life.
On being asked what family means to them, Janhvi said, “I believe that there is not much you can count on in life…however, family is the one thing you can rely on. For me, that’s what family is. Security and consistency; it’s home.”
Arjun added on, “Family is comfort, you should be comfortable enough to be just be with and around them. There should be comfort even in the fights or the anger, there shouldn’t be any fear. You should be able to be your true, naked self with family. That is why your friends are also your family because you can be yourself with them. It is a true bond, which matters a lot to me.”
On the work front, Janhvi will next be seen in Good Luck Jerry, Bombay Girl and Rannbhoomi. Arjun, on the other hand, is awaiting the release of his film Bhoot Police.
