One thing raised the eyebrows when Arjun Kapoor was absent from his father Boney Kapoor’s lavish birthday celebration for wife Sridevi last weekend.
The veteran actress Sridevi turned 50 this year (August 13). She to bring in the gorgeous actor’s milestone birthday, husband Boney Kapoor hosted a lavish soiree at Club Alibii, Colaba in Mumbai on August 16.
Decked in a floral Prabal Gurung ensemble, she looked stunning and svelte, with her elder daughter Jhanvi Kapoor by her side. Boney Kapoor personally invited his B-town friends and colleagues, Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Rakesh Roshan, Anupam Kher, Juhi Chawla, Hema Malini, Fardeen Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and his wife Genelia D’Souza, Satish Kaushik, Sohail Khan and cricketer Yuvraj Singh, among others.
The husband played the perfect host and personally attended to guests who moved up to wish their favorite actor. But the absence of a certain young male Kapoors at the royal gathering raised eyebrows.
Well… what you guessed is right! While Boney, his brothers Anil Kapoor and wife Sunita and Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep, and his daughters Khushi and Jhanvi posed like a ‘picture perfect’ family for the shutterbugs, the gathered guests and media were surprised at son Arjun Kapoor’s absence.
Reportedly, Arjun was in town that night, but chose not to attend the party hosted by his father. “I guess Arjun isn’t very cordial with Sridevi and so he decided to give the party a miss.
At this year’s IIFA awards ceremony, he was present at the red carpet, but entered only after mom and dad walked in. It looks like he’s trying his best to avoid being spotted together with them.
There have been rumors about Arjun Kapoor is playing the protagonist in his dad’s production Mr. India 2 with Sridevi and chacha Anil Kapoor, but if he does not wish to be even seen with the actress in the same screen, then we really wonder how he will share screen space with her in the sequel.
If Arjun is playing Mr. India, then obviously he shouldn’t be worried about being seen with Sridevi.
