These pics are proof that Sridevi has finally been accepted by husband Boney Kapoor's family!
Sridevi and daughters were in attendance at Boney Kapoor's sister's son's wedding in Abu Dhabi.
Getting married to someone who is already married comes with its own sets of challenges, especially when it comes to getting respect from the new family. While for some it turns out to be a smooth ride, for Bollywood actress Sridevi it wasn't easy making an entry in the Kapoor clan and bonding with her extending family.
There were plenty of reports that said that Sridevi had a tough time gaining acceptance from her step kids and brother-in-law Anil Kapoor, who also happened to be her co-star in many superhit films.
To make matters worse Arjun Kapoor, Boney Kapoor' son from his previous marriage to Mona Kapoor, said in a popular chat show that he doesn't take Sridevi as his mother. He also said that they will never be able to have a normal relationship like a mom and son.
"My relationship with her would never be normal. She is just my father's wife and nothing beyond that. I respect her for that as my mother Mona Kapoor has taught me never to disrespect anyone," he said.
But, as they say time heals everything and so the relationship between Sridevi and her extended Kapoor family improved, especially after the death of Mona Kapoor a couple of years back.
There are reports that say that the once popular actress is leaving no stone unturned to find love and respect in Boney's family. And we must say that her efforts are finally paying off and she now accompanies husband Boney Kapoor in all his family functions and has been accepted by the family, even though it took 20 years.
While there were a few pictures that saw Sridevi in the Karva Chauth and Diwali festivities with her extended family, this time she was the star guest at Boney Kapoor's sister's son's wedding. Yes, that's right. It was a family wedding for the Kapoors in Abu Dhabi last week and Sridevi was present at all the ceremonies along with daughter Jhanvi and Khushi, who bonded with cousins Sonam, Rhea, Arjun and Harshvardhan Kapoor.
Check out this picture of Sridevi with Sunita Kapoor, Anil Kapoor's wife, who was very close to Mona Kapoor.
Here's another picture of Sridevi with her popular co-star from Mr India, Anil Kapoor that Sridevi proudly posted on her Instagram. The groom was Kapoor cousin Akshay Marwah, brother of actor Mohit Marwah and son of Sandeep Marwah. Akshay's mother Reena Kapoor is Anil and Boney Kapoor's sister and Sridevi's sister-in-law.
Sridevi and her daughters were visibly excited during the wedding ceremonies and happily posed for pictures in their shining designer wear. And, as always they looked stunning! Look how gorgeous the two sisters look in this Gudhchahi picture!
And, this one takes the cake. In this picture, Sridevi is seen with husband Boney Kapoor's sister Reena Kapoor and the newly-weds, Akshay and Aashita.
Sridevi has indeed proved that you can sort out your complicated relationships even though it took her 20 long years to do so.
It can be quite a task to work on relationships that are complicated, but there are a few thing that can really go a long way in strengthening your bond with your extended family.
1. Be patient: Don't be in a hurry to gain respect and make your presence felt. Give yourself and the others some time to open up to you and be comfortable with you around.
2. Be respectful: No matter how bitter the relationships turn out to be, never forget to respect your near and dear ones as only then would you get it back.
3. Love your partner: Don't let the sour relationships affect the bond that you share with your partner and ultimately that is what matters to you the most.
