Arjun Kapoor paid tribute to his late mother, Mona Shourie Kapoor, on Friday, the anniversary of her birth, as he does every year. The actor shared an image of a letter he wrote to his mother in 1997 where he requested that she always smile.
Arjun Kapoor wrote in his letter to his mother when he was young, "My mother is more precious than gold, more soft than a petal of a flower, more enthusiastic than a teenager, and more loveable than myself."
He added, "Oh, mother! never get upset, because your tears are like fresh droplets of water and your smile is like Rs 1,00,00,000, and much more." Kapoor signed off with, "Your son, AK".

Arjun Kapoor posted two old photos of himself and his mother along with the letter. In the caption of his post, the actor wrote, “Maa, I'm starting to run out of pictures. I'm out of words, so I'll just say it again in a way that captures the child inside me. Perhaps I've lost my motivation and strength as well, but today is your birthday and the best day of the year for me, so I pledge to keep trying and to find new energy and strength & I promise u I will make u proud wherever u are… love u feels rather empty without ur smile ya…Happy Birthday to my everything. ❤️”
As Kapoor shared the post about his mother, Vidya Balan, Bhumi Pednekar, Gauahar Khan, Rakulpreet Singh, Huma Qureshi, and many others showered him with love.
After she and Boney Kapoor divorced, Mona Shourie raised Arjun Kapoor and his sister Anshula Kapoor primarily on her own. Sadly, she lost her battle with cancer on March 25, 2012.
The last time we saw Arjun Kapoor was in Kuttey, a film by Aasmaan Bharadwaj. Tabu, Naseeruddin Shah, Konkona Sensharma, Radhika Madan, and Kumud Mishra also starred in the movie.
