During the same event, Janhvi Kapoor shared an emotional moment as she spoke about her late mother, iconic actress Sridevi. Reflecting on a career that has left an indelible mark on the Indian film industry, Sridevi continues to be a perpetual inspiration and driving force in Janhvi's life.
Discussing the burden of being Sridevi's daughter, Janhvi Kapoor openly expressed, “I don't think anyone can do what she did, anyone is as versatile as her…
the level at which she would perform, I don't think anyone can handle that… leave me alone! But even in today's generation, actresses are compared with their dance moves, every step, every performance… my sister and I were initially very stressed and very nervous, weighed down with baggage. But then I started to understand that I am being compared to Mumma (Sridevi), so this is the standard! I think that's what started to motivate me… and actually,Mother she had just told me that my first film and performance will not be compared to her first film; will be compared to her last film. She told me, 'I wouldn't even want my enemy to suffer that kind of pressure.'”
Janhvi Kapoor and Shikhar Pahariya's viral video from Ujjain's Mahakal temple sparks marriage rumors.
Discussing her debut film, Janhvi added, “When I started working on my first film, I was so conscious that I wanted to completely separate myself from it because people used to think that I got my first film because I am Sridevi Kapoor's daughter. I don't know what different journey I took that I won't accept help from my mother, I will act completely different from my mother's acting style, I used to tell her not to come on the sets. an unfair advantage, an asset. But now I feel like I was a fool at that moment. Main hoon unki beti, is sacchai se main bhag nahi sakti. Now that she is not here, this is my biggest regret.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Janhvi Kapoor will be seen in some of the biggest films which include Mr. Mahi and the much-awaited action starrer Jr. NTR Devara Part 1 which will be released in theaters on April 5, 2024.
