Tusshar Kapoor has opened up about sibling rivalry and comparisons made between him and his sister, producer Ekta Kapoor. In a recent interview with an online portal, the actor said that while comparisons are inevitable, the bother-sister duo ‘try to strike a balance and consciously try not to encroach each other’s space’.
He said, “No, it never really bothered me because we were in different career paths, she is a producer and I am an actor. There were some years when her work was successful and then there were some years when mine was. For example, when Golmaal would come out, there would be a hit in the family, we would celebrate that as well. We have both had our shares of ups and lulls. I don’t think there is any scope for comparisons really.”
However, he did accept the fact that people often tried to pit them against each other. He said, “Of course, logon ne bohut ungli karne ki koshish ki thi but we have risen above that. We have had our fights also not just about career but otherwise also. We never stuck in that though. I keep my work away from her and she does the same.”
Tusshar and Ekta both share a great personal bond and both are parents to sons born through surrogacy. Tusshar celebrated the fourth birthday of his son Laksshya yesterday. Ekta penned a heartfelt birthday wish for the little boy.
