New Delhi : We know that actor Arjun Kapoor is very close to his sister Anshula Kapoor and after the death of actress Sridevi, he is now connected with his half-sisters – Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. The actor revealed that he finds it very strange when Janhvi calls him 'Arjun Bhaiyya'.

In a recent Clubhouse session attended by Arjun Kapoor, the actor was asked about an episode of Karan Johar’s chatshow with Janhvi Kapoor where ‘Arjun bhaiyya’ was translated as ‘Brother Arjun.’ To this, Arjun replied that ‘Brother Arjun’ sounds ‘a bit religious’ to him and said, “The thing is, ‘Arjun bhaiyya’ still sounds very strange to me, only because Anshula calls me ‘bhai’ in a very strange way. ‘Arjun bhaiyya’ is a very new thing. So, when Janhvi says that, it still feels very, very new to me, actually.”

He also mentioned that he never asked Janhvi to call by any specific name. “I think it just comes very naturally to Janhvi to call me ‘Arjun bhaiyya’ because I have never even told her, ‘You should call me this’ or call me that,” he explained.

For the unversed, Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor are Boney Kapoor’s two children from his first marriage to Mona Shourie Kapoor. Later in 1996, Boney tied the knot with Sridevi and was blessed with two daughters, Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor.

The family grew closed after Sridevi passed away in 2018 due to accidental drowning as Arjun and Anshula supported Boney, Janhvi and Khushi during their tough time.
