While rumours of Jhanvi Kapoor making her debut in Karan Johar۪s film, opposite Sidharth Malhotra, have been doing the rounds of B-town, Sridevi has denied any such progress. According to the legendary actress, her 17-year-old daughter is currently too busy with her studies and has no plans to debut in the film industry any time soon.
I don۪t know why people are talking about her debut all the time. She is still very much studying. I am the mother, who is supposed to be in this industry and I only don۪t know about this, Sridevi told Times of India.
When further asked why Jhanvi was constantly seen making public appearances if there were no such plans, Sridevi said, I۪ve come back to films after 15 years, so naturally, my daughters are excited and love to be with me. That doesn۪t mean I۪m promoting her or grooming her. If I really wanted to do that, I wouldn۪t be exposing her like this. I would keep her at home and groom her, just like is being written, and then introduce her to the world.
Belonging to a film family, with parents, uncles, cousins and step-siblings in the business, it is expected that Jhanvi would enter the film industry sooner or later. Though initially it was just Jhanvi who was spotted with Sridevi at almost every event, her younger sister, Khushi (13), has also started to make many public appearances now.
