It has been two years since Sridevi Kapoor, who was a Padma Shri awardee, first female superstar, veteran actress and whatnot, had taken her last breath in Dubai in a misfortunate incident. But even today, any news or pictures related to her makes it to the headlines and her fans want to know more and more about who she was in real-life through the anecdotes shared by Sridevi’s family. Married to Boney Kapoor, Sridevi was a proud mother to two beautiful girls, Janhvi Kapoor, who had made her debut post her mother’s demise in 2018 and had become the Dhadak of the nation, and Khushi Kapoor, who is completing her education before entering the entertainment industry.

To mark the first death anniversary of Sridevi Kapoor, Boney Kapoor, their daughters, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor, her brother-in-law, Anil Kapoor had performed a puja at her maternal home in Chennai. For the puja, Janhvi and Khushi had donned traditional outfits while Boney and Anil had worn white kurtas. On February 24, 2019, Janhvi had posted a monochrome throwback picture with her mother, Sridevi, holding her hand as they had worn similar bangles. Janhvi had captioned it as “My heart will always be heavy. But I’ll always be smiling because it has you in it.”
It was in 2018 when Sridevi Kapoor had passed away and since then, though Boney Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor had visited her home in Chennai, they had never stayed there. According to a ETimes report, the trio along with Shanaya Kapoor had jetted off to Chennai a few days back and will spend a few days there. It was last in November 2017 when the family had celebrated Boney’s birthday with Sridevi in her Chennai home and after three years, they’ll be staying there for a few days. The source was quoted as saying, "Boney has some work in Hyderabad for a few days and he will leave Janhvi and Khushi in their Chennai home after settling them there. He will join them back in Chennai around November 11. The trio will return to Mumbai only post that."
Revealing that Boney Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor had always stayed in the hotel and not Sridevi’s home post her demise, the source continued, "It's basically a home away from home in Chennai for Janhvi and Khushi, for some time they are away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbai. Janhvi and Khushi had visited Chennai after Sridevi passed away (on February 24, 2018) for the prayer meet but they always stayed at a hotel as it wasn't easy to dodge the memories of the times they spent with Sridevi in the Chennai house. Boney too had put himself up in a hotel, then. Sridevi loved her Chennai home a lot. And this time, they have mustered the courage."

Ever since Janhvi Kapoor had made her debut in 2018 with the film, Dhadak, she had never shied away from giving an insight into the lives of the Kapoors and her relationship with late mom, Sridevi. And the Benetton fragrance launch event in 2019 was no different! Janhvi had given sneak peeks into her own personal olfactory memory lane, describing scents that had reminded her of some cherishable moments of her life, which is related with Sridevi. Revealing her mother's favourite scent, Janhvi had said, "My childhood smells like my mom. We used to spend a lot of time in our home in Chennai, and she used to put mogras all over our house and in her hair, so it smells like her."
Even in August 2018 at the Vogue Beauty Awards, Janhvi Kapoor had revealed the important skincare and haircare tricks that she had gleaned from Sridevi during her childhood, like oiling her strands and using food as face masks. She was then quoted as saying, "Mom would make our hair oil at home with dried flowers and amla, and she'd make sure she gave me and Khushi an oil massage every three days. Whatever leftover [fruit] we had from breakfast, we'd put on our face." Continuing the same thing now, Janhvi had added, "I use honey, malai, whatever I have available."
