Janhvi Kapoor had always dreamt of joining Bollywood, but Sridevi was not very keen on her daughter’s dream. In an interview with ETimes, Janhvi talked about her mother, Sridevi’s first reaction when she had shown a keen interest in joining Bollywood and told her about her acting dreams. Sridevi’s instant response to the same was, “don’t get into it”. According to Sridevi, she had worked hard all the years to give a comfortable life to her daughters, which the industry can never provide as Janhvi would have to face a lot of challenges and could also get hurt.

In her first-ever formal interview post her mother’s demise, Janhvi talked about coping with the tragedy. While talking to Vogue in an interview taken by Karan Johar, Janhvi talked about her mother, Sridevi and revealed her last words to her before she left for Dubai. She had said:

“I could always be the baby with her. When I’d wake up, the first thing I’d do was ask for her. I’d need her to put me to sleep sometimes and she literally had to feed me. The day before she left for the wedding, I had to shoot, but I couldn’t sleep, so I was like, “I need you to come and put me to sleep.” But she was packing, so by the time she came to me I was half asleep. But I could feel her patting my head.”
