Here’s What Sridevi Thought About Janhvi Kapoor’s ‘Dhadak’!

A mother’s advice to her daughter!

Actress Sridevi, who passed away in February, had clocked in around 50 years of acting experience and is said to have been apprehensive of her elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor taking up the same profession. Janhvi, who recently featured on the cover of a fashion magazine, said in an interview that her mother had watched bits from her debut film Dhadak.

Sridevi had managed to watch around 25 minutes of her daughter’s debut film and had been very honest about what she thought.

The late actress advised her daughter on a few things such as the smudged mascara on her face and the fact that she shouldn’t have anything on her face for the second half of the film. Sounds like the typical advise a mother would have for her daughter, bearing in mind that her daughter comes out to look perfect on screen!

Incidentally, in the same interview, Janhvi had revealed how her mother didn’t want her to take up acting. “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,” she revealed.

Dhadak, a remake of 2016’s Marathi film Sairat, started shooting in November last year. Sridevi’s eldest daughter and Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother Ishaan Khattar are all set to make their cinema debut in this film directed by Shashank Khaitan, who is best known for directing Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki DulhaniaSairat, directed by Nagaraj Manjule, delved deep into caste politics and honour killing. Produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, the film is slated for a July 20 release this year.
