An emotional Arjun Kapoor spoke about his mother’s last call to his good friend and mentor Salman Khan, from her hospital bed, a week before she passed away after suffering from cancer.
“The last call my mother made from the hospital bed was to Salman bhai. She knew about her condition by then. She thanked him for me having become an actor because of him. He told her that he would take her abroad but within a week, she passed away.”
At a promotional event of his upcoming film ‘2 States’, Arjun also said that it was Salman who ensured that the family got privacy during Mona Kapoor’s funeral.
“He (Salman) came to the funeral. Till he had come, the media was standing almost on top of the pyre. But he came and ensured I got some privacy. When he came home that day, it was the tightest hug I have ever given him” Arjun said.
Mona Kapoor passed away on March 25 2012, less than 45 days before the release of Arjun’s debut film Ishaqzaade.
