Khushi Kapoor On Receiving Hate: “My Self-Esteem Issues & Insecurities Stem From That”

Most of us are familiar with actress Janhvi Kapoor through her work in ‘Dhadak’ and ‘Ghost Stories’. We’re also looking forward to her upcoming releases ‘Gunjan Saxena’ and ‘Dostana 2’. But not much is known her sister Khushi Kapoor.

Instagram user Pearl Malik recently offered a glimpse into the life of Sridevi’s younger daughter through her series “Quarantine Tapes”. NDTV quoted Khushi saying,

“I am a normal 19-year-old girl. I don’t think I’m the person I want to be yet but I definitely think I’m growing. It’s so rewarding to see people show so much appreciation towards me when I have not even done anything to deserve it yet. I have the power to make someone else happy, it just makes this all the more worth it.”

Hindustan Times quoted her adding,

“People still s**t on me. I’m kind of shy and awkward. Obviously, sometimes, the hate gets to you, especially being so young. I just want people to know I am a real person. I didn’t really know how to handle it, so my self-esteem issues and insecurities stem from that. As a child, it affected the way I saw my parents. I didn’t look like my mom and I didn’t look like my sister, so sometimes, people would point that out and make fun of me. I wasn’t the healthiest about it at some point and it affected the way I would eat and the way I would dress.”

Mumbai Mirror reports that she concluded by saying, “You just have to learn to be okay with yourself and in your own skin. I think that the way to deal with it is to say f**k it and put yourself out there and do whatever you feel like doing. I feel like people will appreciate you for it.”
