Janhvi Kapoor remembers Boney Kapoor prioritised watching cricket over spending time with her

Well, Janhvi’s upcoming film, Mr & Mrs Mahi has a huge connection with cricket, and in a recent interaction on a promotional event of the film, the diva mentioned how she wasn’t a fan of cricket initially. Talking about the same, she mentioned how she always identified the sport as something which took away her father from her. Explaining a bit more, Janhvi recalled how her father, Boney Kapoor used to prefer watching cricket rather than spending time with her. She narrated:

“I knew very little about the sport. For me, it was something that would take my father's time away from me. When he used to return home from work, he always used to sit in front of the TV to watch cricket. He used to not answer me as he used to be glued to the TV. As a kid, main bahot chidd jaati thi. I used to feel that cricket is the reason dad did not give me attention. That was my only relationship with the sport.”

Janhvi once revealed her father, Boney has a habit of praising her for the trifle of reasons

Earlier, in an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Janhvi Kapoor addressed how she tends to receive a lot of appreciation from her father, Boney Kapoor, to the extent that he can praise her for every little thing that she does. Joking how if she would burp, her father would even praise her for that, Janhvi said:

“I am his daughter. He will think that even if I burp he'll be like 'Wah beta! Kya dakaar maara hai'. He also came from the place of saying his two bits about 'you've misunderstood my daughter, she works hard' and that was his way of doing it.”
