In the latest episode of Koffee With Karan, Arjun Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor graced the show. The duo discussed from childhood secrets to relationship status, the half -siblings, who came closer after Janhvi lost her mother, actress Sridevi in February, talked about everything under the sun.

During the recent episode, in a particular segment, Karan asked the duo to call up a relative and get them to say, “Hey Karan, what’s up,” and that whoever does it first would win a point. Janhvi called up sister Anshula and started explaining to her as to what needs to be done. But Arjun told Anshula not to say the line if she wants him to come back home. In all this chaos, Anshula got confused and didn’t say anything and Arjun ended up winning the game.

When the episode was aired on Sunday, Janhvi’s fans mercilessly trolled Anshula for not helping the her. In fact, Janhvi revealed that Anshula even got rape threats over the “silly” thing they did on Koffee With Karan.

“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. 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,” she said.

Arjun Kapoor, on defending her sister, has taken to Twitter to slam the trolls for abusing his sister.

 

“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…” he tweeted.
