Arjun Kapoor shared an emotional video on Instagram, thanking all the mothers on Mother’s Day (May 10). In the video, Arjun asked his fans, who are staying away from their families, to talk to their mothers and not ignore their calls.
He says in the video, “Wishing all the mothers a Happy Mother’s Day. It feels nice to see so many people who love their mothers, and I guess at the same time it’s bittersweet for somebody like me, who would want to say it, but can’t. I was a little angry and irritated, but eventually I realised that I wanted to put this out there. I’m sure a lot of people are without their parents right now. A lot of you are not connected to them, or not able to feel the warmth that you crave.”
He goes on to say, “Trust me when I say this, phone utha ke baat kar lo, jab phone aaye toh ignore mat karo. Because after all this ends, we will go back to our lives and it will be normal at some point. The relationship that we all crave are around us but we need Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and these days to realise their importance. I want to thank all the mothers out there. Lockdown mein thoda zyada lag raha hai, but sabke post dekhke aacha laga.”
The Ishaqzaade actor captioned the post as, “Dealing with Mother’s Day Rambling my thoughts out loud. Don’t mind but thoda ajeeb emotional type Sunday tha. Lockdown I can handle lekin Mother’s Day & lockdown together thoda zyada ho gaya yaar… emotions ko system se bahar nikalte hue, Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing souls out there. Most importantly Happy Mother’s Day Mom miss you always & forever.”
Arjun often takes to Instagram to share old pictures of his mother Mona Kapoor, recalling his beautiful memories with her.
Take a look:
Boney Kapoor was married to Mona and had two children – Arjun and Anshula – when he confided in Mona about his feelings for Sridevi. In 1996, he tied the knot with Sridevi. Mona, who was suffering from cancer, died on March 25, 2012.
