Bollywood siblings Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor shared pictures and penned heartfelt notes on social media in the memory of their late mother, Mona Shourie, on Saturday.

Mona was married to film producer Boney Kapoor from 1986 to 1996. The couple got separated after Boney fell in love with Bollywood actress Sridevi. After her split from Boney, Mona raised Arjun and Anshula as a single mother. She passed away at the age of 48 after losing her battle with cancer on this day in 2012.


Taking to Instagram, Arjun shared a throwback picture with her mum with an emotional note. “11 years have passed since u become the shield that protects me from beyond but I still wish u were here because in this cruel world today I try & handle all the hate but I really miss ur love which made me deal with everything with a smile on my face & made me a better person a happier person a calmer person perhaps maybe a more alive soul,” he wrote.

Anshula, younger sister of Arjun, also shared a childhood photo with her mother with a short note. “11 years since I’ve felt your hug, since we’ve seen your smile, since I’ve held your hand. Every year when this day comes around, and we finish another year here without you.. it feels like the hole in my heart gets even larger. Can you feel me missing you? Because I miss you everyday. Love you to infinity and beyond,” she wrote.

Apart from Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor, both half-sisters to Arjun and Anshula, Sanjay Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Samantha Ruth Prabhu also sent their love to the Kapoor siblings.

Arjun had previously talked about his mother in an episode of Koffee With Karan. The Ek Villain Returns star had expressed regret that his mother never got to see his debut film Ishaqzaade, which released in May 2012, just two months after Mona’s death.
