In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Janhvi Kapoor had talked about the constant comparison with her late mother, Sridevi. When asked if she feels the pressure to match up to her mother's stature, Janhvi had said, "I think people need to accept that I'm a different person from my mother. There's a section of society which has been able to do that with Dhadak, but there are people who couldn't make that differentiation and they still look for Sridevi in me. Maybe after more of my work comes out, they'll understand I'm a different type of actor and I'll make different choices."
When asked, "If given a chance, would you want to recreate her magic onscreen in the remake of any of her films?" Janhvi Kapoor had retorted, "I don't think that anyone can recreate that magic. No one can. Also, when something has been done so well, I don't know if it's right to try to attempt to do it again."
