Khushi Kapoor Opens Up About Her Insecurities As A Star Child And We Love The Way She Deals With Them
Growing up is difficult. Yes, there is no escaping it, but it requires adulting and being responsible and let me tell you this, I did not sign up for all of that. Your body is changing, puberty is kicking in but you won’t be thanking that until years later, your thoughts and ideas about life are just forming and the need for social validation is at its peak. Basically, it is the most chaotic times in life, and with the increasing role of social media in our lives, it couldn’t have been easy. Quite the opposite rather, and for celebrity and star kids too. As we’ve come to find out after Khushi Kapoor recently opened up about her own insecurities.
The 19-year-old, who is the daughter of late actress and legend Sridevi and the younger sister of Dhadak actress Janhvi Kapoor has always been secretive, so we literally know nothing about her. Apart from her impeccable fashion sense and her loving bond with her sister, not much was known about her, until an Instagram user, Pearl Malik compiled the interviews of the younger Kapoor to offer us insight into this star child’s life.
Posted on her Instagram, the video has Khushi talking about a lot of things in her life. She starts by 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.”

Who is the real Khushi Kapoor? A normal 19-year old girl – funny, shy and a little awkward. She strives to grow from the challenges life throws at her and wishes to make people smile. She believes in “staying true to yourself and comfortable in your own skin.” Here’s a glimpse of Khushi’s world from her heart – as pure and raw as it gets. @khushi05k Graphics : @nimrankang #quarantine #quarantinelife

Opening up further about how it’s not all sunshine and sparkles being a star kid, for there is a lot of hate that comes along all that love. Hindustan Times quoted her saying, “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.”
And considering how well we can relate with her right now, is pretty telling of how it is no different with star kids. Everyone has insecurities growing up and it is perhaps why we must not only learn to grow a thick skin to it, regardless of whether we belong to a star family or not, but also learn to be compassionate towards others who might be going through something similar.
She then concluded 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.” And we couldn’t agree with her more on this. Having enough faith in yourself always goes a long way and if anything, will always help you keep grounded. Or at least that’s what Khushi’s take on life is!
