Apart from serving up some mouth-watering dishes on the latest episode of Star vs Food, Arjun Kapoor also made some startling revelations about how he coped with his parents’ divorce.

On the Discovery Plus show, the actor shared how food has always been an important part of his life and how he used it as a coping mechanism during the divorce of his parents Mona Kapoor and Boney Kapoor.

“I looked at food for comfort. I got caught up in the way I felt emotionally, so I started eating and then I really enjoyed eating, and fast food culture came into India at that point of time and fast food is 'fast food’, so you can go after school and keep eating,” he said.

Arjun said that his food indulgence was so beyond control that he weighed 150 kg when he was 16 years old and also developed asthma due to it.

“It is very difficult to let go because eventually, there is nobody to stop you beyond a point. Your mother loves you; she will reprimand you, but you are still a kid, and they give you benefit of the doubt ki yeh umar hai khaane ki, theek hai (this is the age to eat, so it’s alright),” the actor added.

Much like his stints at Koffee With Karan, Arjun entered the show as a special guest, to surprise the other celebrities. His uncle and aunt Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep Kapoor were cooking Laal Maas and Chapli Kabab, when Arjun dropped in. In the previous episodes, the show featured Karan Johar and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
