Arjun Kapoor opens up about his emotional turmoil after his mother Mona Kapoor passed away

In an interview with a leading daily, Ishqzaade star got emotional as he talked about his mother's death. For the unversed, Arjun Kapoor's mother passed away right before the release of his first film. He has this regret that his mother didn't get to see his work on big screens.

He said, "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 nafrat 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."
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 in 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." Mona Kapoor has left behind a legacy that Arjun and Anshula carry forward in their genes. People who knew her always speak or remember her with fond memories. Arjun shares, "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, " he further said.
