Janhvi Kapoor’s Words About Her Mother Will Make You Miss The Actress Even More!

Mum’s the word for the ‘Dhadak’ girl!

Janhvi Kapoor, the daughter of late actress Sridevi Boney Kapoor and producer Boney Kapoor, is all set to make her acting debut this month with the film Dhadak. In a recent interview, the upcoming actress said that while she knows that she will be compared to her mother now that she, too, is an actress, she quickly states that her mother did something no other artiste could do.

“My mum holds such a strong space in people’s heart and had a very personal connect. I hope I can please her fans also in some way in a bid to show gratitude for all the love she got. I hope I am given an opportunity to create my own identity. I don’t think anyone can be like her. What she had to offer to films and to people’s lives was greater than what any artiste could,” she said.

She also added how her half-brother Arjun Kapoor has been a pillar of support to her and her sister, Khushi.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better brother and a better sister. They have given us a lot of strength. He is a very wise man and has given tips like, ‘just be honest, be yourself and be respectful towards people.’ Somehow, when he says it, I take it like the gospel truth,” she said.

Janhvi will be making her acting debut alongside Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother, Ishaan Khatter. Directed by Shashank Khaitan, the film is a remake of the Marathi film Sairat.  The film, produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, is slated for a July 20 release.
