Last year, the entire world of the Kapoor clan changed when the most important part of their family left the world without the final goodbye. We all agree it was too soon and Sridevi’s sudden demise sent shockwaves around the world. However, it was the 21-year-old actress, Janhvi who suddenly grew into a responsible woman.
On February 23, 2019, Janhvi took to her Instagram handle to share a heartfelt note for her mother’s first death anniversary. She posted a monochrome picture of her mother’s hand in her hand, along with it she wrote, “My heart will always be heavy. But I’ll always be smiling because it has you in it.” Check out the picture below:
Janvhi, who made her big Bollywood debut last year in 2018, has often spoken about the void she feels in her heart. In an interview with Famously Filmfare, the millennial influencer opened about the pain of losing her mother. She had said, “I think, I was still in that state of shock, to be very honest. I think I am still in shock. None of it has been processed. Like, I have no memory of three or four months.” (Also Read: Alia Bhatt Gets All Teary-Eyed During Bestie, Devika's Vidaai, Looks Resplendent In Blue Saree)
Janhvi also talked about the time when her half-brother and sister, Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor came into her family and became an important part of it. She had said, “You know at the end of the day, we have the same blood in us. I don't remember anything of those four months but I do remember that one day when we were sitting in Harsh (Anil Kapoor's son) Bhaiya's room and Arjun Bhaiya and Anshula (Arjun Kapoor's sister) Didi came in - I think that was the one day when I felt like, 'Ok maybe we might be okay.”
Earlier in an interview with Vogue, Janhvi talked about how her mother, Sridevi never wanted her to be part of the industry. She had stated, “She never wanted me to be an actress. She was more relaxed about Khushi getting into films. She thought I was naïve, that I wasn’t thick-skinned enough. She wanted us to live a more relaxed life. She loved what she did but you know it was intense."
The actress further revealed the times when her mother used to narrate her stories from her career in the ‘80s and ‘90s, and had said, “Those were my bedtime stories. Her whacked-out experiences. You know, in the ’80s and ’90s, when actors would do multiple shifts working simultaneously on different films? So she was doing three movies with the same director, who was also the actor. They were in Ooty and he decided to shoot songs for all three films together. He’d do a scene, then cut and walk to the next location and the entire cast and crew would follow. At one point, he does a shot, starts walking and, suddenly, he’s behind a tree taking a piss, and the entire cast and crew is there, watching. He was just walking, and everyone assumed they were going to the next location! Mum was in all the films, and she’d figure out which film they were shooting for by his wigs, which would change for each role.” (Don't Miss: Dipika Kakar Gets The Most Romantic Surprise From Shoaib Ibrahim On Their First Wedding Anniversary)
