Recently, at the trailer launch of ‘Dhadak,’ when she was asked about her mother Sridevi, Janhvi Kapoor got emotional and was on the verge of breaking down.
Sridevi passed away on 24th February after accidentally drowning in her hotel bath tub in Dubai. The star was in the UAE to attend a family wedding, post which she had extended her stay, reports Pinkvilla.
In her first ever interview, Kapoor talked about coping with the monumental loss of her mother. She told Vogue, “The family has come together. It’s made us feel safe and secure. Even for papa (Boney Kapoor), it’s a source of comfort. It has definitely tied us together. We’ve lost mum, and I don’t think that’s a loss any of us will ever get over.”
“I am so proud of my parents. I need to make them as proud of me. That has always been my motivation. I want mine to be ‘the debut’. But it comes from an honest and sincere place. Mum always told me, it’s not about the kind of role or movie you do; you need to make an impression- that’s an actor’s job. She never encouraged jealousy or frustration. We’re capable of being happy for others,” she added.
She also revealed that Sridevi had watched about 25 minutes of her debut film ‘Dhadak.’ Kapoor was quoted as saying, “She was very technical about it. The first thing she told me was the things I needed to improve — she felt the mascara was smudged and it really bothered her. The second half has to be different, she told me… ‘You can’t wear anything on your face.’ That’s all she told me, but she was happy.”
