Khushi Kapoor on people comparing her looks with Sridevi and Janhvi Kapoor: My self-esteem issues stem from that
The quarantine time has made people open up in ways we otherwise would have never imagined. After Janhvi Kapoor her younger sister Khushi Kapoor has opened up about herself in the ‘Quarantine Tape’ that was shared on social media. The 19-year-old gave insight into who she is and what are the things that affect her. She even opened up about her self-esteem issues and insecurities.
Khushi shared how the criticism and hate that she received from people made her insecure and that affected the way she ate and dressed. Introducing herself as a 19-year-old, Khushi can be heard saying, “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.”
Sharing how people would constantly compare her looks with her mother Sridevi and sister Janhvi Kapoor, Khushi further added, “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.”
