Mumbai: Actor Arjun Kapoor was back in the city in time to ring in his 33rd birthday on Tuesday, after participating in the IIFA celebrations in Bangkok. He was joined by his father Boney Kapoor and sisters and was greeted by several Bollywood friends.
Boney, along with daughters Anshula, Janhvi and Khushi, were by Arjun’s side when he cut a cake at midnight for his special day.
His sister Anshula wrote a message for him on Instagram with their childhood picture.
Calling him her “anchor and protector”, she wrote: “Happy birthday Bhai! You are genuinely the kindest, most hardworking, strongest and funniest person I know, with the biggest heart. You’ve always been our ‘protector’ and my anchor in more ways than one – my steadfast support, my shelter from the storm, my strength and my emotional cornerstone.”
Actress Sonam Kapoor, Arjun’s cousin, was missing the fun as she is out of country but she posted a video of Arjun cutting his birthday cake.
The newly married actress wrote: “Happy happy birthday Arjun! Love you tons! Wish I was there celebrating with you.. Miss you! You’re the best brother anyone can have, to the funniest kindest gentlest boy.”
Arjun’s step sister Janhvi Kapoor, who has seen him stand by her and her sister Khushi since their mother Sridevi passed away this year, posted a photo of the siblings together and wrote: “You are the reason for our strength. Love you, happy birthday Arjun bhaiya.”
Anil Kapoor, Arjun’s paternal uncle, wrote: “Happy Birthday Chachu! I couldn’t have asked for a better Bhanja/partner-in-crime! Here’s to many more on-screen and off-screen madness, posing to glory and a whole lot of dancing to Lakhan! Arjun, love you!”
