Janhvi Kapoor Recalls Always Being Paranoid About Her Parent's Death, Adds She Forgave Dad For This

Janhvi Kapoor lost her mother and actress, Sridevi on February 24, 2018, but still now, she hasn't come to terms with the same. Janhvi was only in her early 20s when the sudden passing of her mother shook her. It not only changed her perspective towards life, drove her towards spirituality, but also helped her become more responsible than before. Since Sridevi's demise, she has been treasured by her husband, Boney Kapoor and their two daughters, Janhvi and Khushi, who keep opening up about the legendary late actress' immense contribution to their lives.

Janhvi Kapoor talks about being paranoid about losing parents

Now, Janhvi Kapoor is set to be seen in the role of a cricketer in her upcoming film, Mr and Mrs Mahi, co-starring Rajkummar Rao. Ahead of that, she sat for a candid conversation with Ranveer Allahbadia for his podcast, wherein she recalled sneaking into her parents, Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s room at night to check if they were breathing. She mentioned being paranoid at a young age, and used to freak out at trivial matters. She elaborated:

"I was always paranoid about losing my parents, even at that age. Every time they’d go out at night for an event, or travel for a day without me. Even small things, like they’re shopping at duty free and I’ve boarded the plane with my nanny, I’d always be like, ‘They’re not going to board the flight, they’re not going to come back home’. I’d wake up at night and sometimes go into their room to check if they were breathing. There was a weird paranoia."

Janhvi Kapoor talks about her father's absence in her life multiple times

In the same conversation, Janhvi expressed how, after a certain age, kids used to get mature and forgive their parents for a lot more things. She mentioned that now her maternal instincts have grown stronger. Moreover, she understood why her father was absent for a multiple number of events in her life and said:

"After a certain age, they become our kids. I know that I will give my father a lot more allowances to maybe not be there emotionally for me in a way that I assumed a father should be there, just because I know now it’s my time to be there for him. I think we’re too hard on our parents. Everyone’s f**ked up because of their parents, no one has it right. But they’re also messed up because of their parents. No one has followed a handbook, so you need to forgive yourself and forgive them. Just give them love and be there.”

Janhvi Kapoor recalled the moment when she was left howling after a reality show paid homage to her mother, Sridevi

Earlier, in an interview with Mashable India, Janhvi recalled an incident when she was promoting her debut film, Dhadak, on a reality show. It is noteworthy, that Janhvi's mother passed away just before her acting debut. The actress shared that in one segment of the show, the makers surprised her with a video of Sridevi as they paid homage to her. But it deeply saddened her since Sridevi's memories were still fresh in her mind. Although, her team was making sure she didn't get reminded of her mother, but the tribute wasn't informed to them.

Thus, Janhvi added that although, it was a beautiful moment, she wasn't ready for it. She mentioned that the memories came flooding to her in such a way that she wasn't even able to breathe. She started howling and ran off the stage to her vanity van as she had a panic attack. However, the actress mentioned that the makers might have removed that part of the video and added that portion wherein she was seen behaving absolutely normally. Henceforth, people thought she never really cared about her mother, but the actual incident was different.
