MUMBAI: One of Bollywood’s most successful film producers, Boney Kapoor has recently signed up for a new role: that of peacemaker between his wife Sridevi and her sister, Srilatha.
Thanks to Boney Kapoor reportedly playing mediator, Sridevi’s bitter property tussles with her sister Srilatha have ended amicably. Her sister even threw a grand party this week in Chennai, to honour Sridevi for her Padma Shri win.
Boney Kapoor was ever the proud husband when he said in an interview: “Why should I not be proud of my wife? You name me one other actress who has had a 40-year innings as an actress and who made a comeback like she did. Do you know English Vinglish has earned $5 million worldwide. It was released in Hong Kong in March where it has become the second-most successful Hindi film after ‘3 Idiots’. For a heroine-centric film that’s quite an achievement!”
Added the elated husband, with a twinkle in his eye, “I feel she should have got the Padma Shri long back. But never mind. We’re celebrating her success belatedly.”
Kapoor even revealed he’s extremely proud of his son, Arjun Kapoor, who’s ready with his second feature film ‘Aurangzeb’.
“On the one hand, Sri is doing so well for herself getting recognition from places that she deserves. On the other hand, my son Arjun Kapoor’s second film ‘Aurangzeb’ is ready for release and it’s getting the kind of attention that very few films have done lately. Next to Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, it’s my son Arjun in ‘Aurangzeb’ who has received the maximum hits on the internet,” said proud papa Boney.
