The bond between the bereaved Boney Kapoor and his deceased wife Sridevi’s allegedly estranged family has grown stronger in recent months. Not many know this. But Sridevi’s sister along with her daughter Maheshwari visited Boney’s parental home last month to spend considerable quality time together.
Says a source close to the Kapoor family, “Some time ago Boney’s mother played host to Sridevi’s family . Srideviji’s sister Srilatha and her daughter Maheshwari flew down from Chennai to Mumbai to spend time with Boney, his mother and his daughters Janhvi and Khushi from Sridevi and his children Arjun and Anshula from his first marriage. They are all together now. There was never any discord between Boney and Sridevi’s family, except for one uncle who went to town after Sridevi’s death and how divided the family was. The only reason Sridevi’s sister Srilatha was not visible after Sridevi’s death is because she avoided the media as she didn’t know how to answer awkward questions. Otherwise Srilatha as very much around to lend support to Boney, Janhvi and Khushi.”
The source close to Boney says the family intends to come together under one roof. “In fact Arjun and Anshula will soon be moving in with Janhvi and Khushi into one house. The only problem is, which house? Arjun wants his father Boney and his two stepsisters Janhvi and Khushi to shift to his current residence where he stays with Anshula. But Boney’s mother wants the entire family to be united under one roof, the roof of Boney’s parental home.” When I touched base with Boney he was in London, calmer than he has been since Sridevi’s death, “I am here in London with my three daughters Anshula, Janhvi and Khushi. My son Arjun was here too. But he has gone back to Mumbai now. Yes, we’re all together as a family. This gives me some comfort.”
