Sridevi has left behind a legacy in her daughter, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. And they're carrying it gracefully forward, making their mother proud. In an interview with the Filmfare, Janhvi Kapoor had opened up about donning the responsibilities and becoming the lady of the house post her mother's demise and had stated, “I don’t think I have become the lady of the house because I'm very childish. But during this lockdown, I'm understanding how much people at home depend on me a lot more. Because I haven't been home this much for the past 2 years. Now all of sudden I'm keeping track of what Papa is eating, or why Khushi is sleeping so long, and how they are going to get vegetables and if they are sanitizing everything properly or what the protocols are. I was thinking If I wasn't here I don't know what would have been happening. I think they would have managed. I think the responsibility has just dawned on me that they do depend on me a bit."

Sharing an uncanny resemblance to her late mother, Sridevi, Janhvi often faces comparison between her and her mother, in terms of looks, fashion sense, career graph and a lot more. At times, these comparisons are encouraging, at other times, they can be devastating as well. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Janhvi Kapoor had remarked on the constant comparison with her late mother. 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.” (You May Also Like: When Amrita Singh Had Blushingly Sang 'Tum Aa Gaye Ho' For Saif Ali Khan, His Reaction Was Priceless)
