Recently, the terrific brother-sister duo Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor appeared on Karan Johar’s most entertaining chat show Koffee With Karan 6 and by the end of it, they knew they were in trouble. In the last segment, Game on, on the show, Karan asked the duo to call any one of his family member and tell them to say ‘ Hey Karan, it’s me’. While Janhvi was the first one to call sister Anshula Kapoor, the pretty lady didn’t utter a word after Arjun Kapoor asked her not to say it. Eventually, Janhvi lost and the situation gave rise to a big social media debate as people started trolling Anshulka for not helping out Janhvi in the game.
While things were all fun and easy on Koffee With Karan, they weren’t when Janhvi Kapoor revealed that her sister Anshula started getting rape threats after that silly thing. On Tuesday, Janhvi attended an event, a live-athon, hosted by bride-to-be Priyanka Chopra called #SocialforGood as an attempt to raise funds and awareness and discussed the positives and negatives of social media. When asked, Janhvi revealed how her sister Anshula Kapoor has been trolled mercilessly for not helping her win a game on Karan Johar’s talk show. Janhvi said, “You want to protect the people in your life. Like for example my sister actually just recently got trolled on social media. She did something silly on Koffee with Karan and started getting like rape threats and stuff. And it was just weird to me.”

She added, “As people are faceless on social media, they feel they can have opinions that sometimes cross a moral line. So when I put stuff that’s personal up on social media, I do think of that too. I feel protective towards them... what people might say about them or about my equation with them. You tend to be guarded.”
While Janhvi talked about it and said people are too quick to judge, Arjun Kapoor, who is evidently very possessive about his sister Anshula, took to Twitter to hit back at the trolls and give them a taste of their own medicine. He wrote, “Something I assumed was an absolute non-issue on Koffee with Karan has escalated into @anshulakapoor being abused & I can’t be bothered by protocol anymore. F**k all those trolls who wish harm to my sister. I hope ur mom or sister never have to go thru what u have put us thru...” Arjun Kapoor loves his sister the most in this world. When KJo asked on Koffee With Karan that would be his first question after waking up from coma years later, Arjun replied, 'Where is Anshula?'
