Boney is the father to actors Arjun Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, Khushi Kapoor, and Anshula Kapoor. While speaking to ABP’s Entertainment Live, the 68-year-old was asked if he faced any consequences for speaking about his family in public.

He shared, “It has happened a lot of times. Whenever I sit down for an interview, I tell them that you just ask about me and not about family. Because sometimes, I get carried away and I say a lot of things. And they (my kids) say why do you have to speak so much?”

According to Boney’s kids, the audiences must receive certain information from the actors directly and not through the filmmaker. “That’s when I say I am sorry, I made a mistake,” he shared revealing that one of such incident’s intensity was so much that all of them broke down discussing the same.


Boney Kapoor revealed, “They have scolded me, gotten upset with me. After getting upset, kids cried, I cried, I apologized, they said Dad don’t say sorry. It has reached that height,” he shared. 

In one such recent press meet for Maidaan, Boney had said that his brother Anil Kapoor has been upset with him for not getting cast in No Entry 2. When this rumor of tiff escalated, he clarified that things were blown out of proportion.

In the same ABP interview, Boney talked about being known by his family’s fame and confessed, “I have always reveled in this backhanded glory. I was first known as Anil Kapoor’s brother, then I was known as Sridevi’s husband. Now I am known as Arjun, Anshula, Janhvi, Khushi’s father and Sanjay’s brother. I revel in this. I enjoy this.” Boney’s last production was Maidaan which tanked at the box office.
