“I am trying to be both a mother and a father to my children,” he said, in an interview with Masala. The producer also acknowledged how the family’s life was briefly in freeze-pause in the last few months.
“There were so many things left unsaid and undone. Now I am finally picking up the pieces again trying to put my life together for my children’s sake. There were things that were put on pause. I am trying to resume my life. I am yet to come to terms with the fact that she’s gone forever,” he added.
Her daughter Janhvi Kapoor, who is all set to make her acting debut in Dhadak, has been paying tributes to her late mother on social media, often remembering all the fun times with her. She recently attended the National Awards ceremony, accepting her mother’s posthumous award.
On my birthday, the only thing I ask of all of you is that you love your parents. Cherish them and devote yourself to making them feel that love. They have made you. And I ask that you remember my mother fondly, pray for her soul to rest in peace. Let the love and adulation you’ll showered on her continue and please know that the biggest part of my mother was the love she shared with papa. And their love is immortal because there was nothing like it in the whole world. Nothing as joyful and pure and no two people as devoted to one another as they were. Please respect that because it hurts to think anyone would ever try to tarnish it. Preserving the sanctity of what they had would mean the world not only to my mother but also to a man who’s entire being revolved around her, and her two children who are all that remains of their love. Me and Khushi have lost our mother but papa has lost his “Jaan”. She was so much more than just an actor or a mother or a wife. She was the ultimate and the best in all these roles. It mattered a great deal to her to give love and to get love. For people to be good and gracious and kind. She didn’t understand frustration or malice or jealousy. So let’s be that. Let’s be full of only good and give only love. That would make her happy, to know that even in death, she gave you all something. The courage and inspiration to fill yourselves with nothing but love and rid yourselves of bitterness in any way and form. That’s what she stood for. Dignity, strength and innocence. Thank you for the love and support everyone has shown us in the past couple of days. It’s given us hope and strength and we can’t thank you all enough.
Superstar Sridevi, who died on February 24 around 11 PM UAE time at a hotel room in Dubai, has been the centre of various speculations for a while now. Accompanied by her husband Boney Kapoor and younger daughter Khushi Kapoor, Sridevi was in Dubai for a family wedding when she died. It is said that she went into the hotel bathroom, and when she did not come back on time, a worried Boney Kapoor entered the bathroom with the hotel staff, where he found his wife unconscious. Sridevi was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Her death has been ruled as a case of accidental drowning, but that hasn’t stopped theories floating about a possible murder. Recently, an ex-cop come out claiming that her death was a planned murder.
Meanwhile, the actress was honoured at the recent Cannes Film Festival. While her family was supposed to collect the award, filmmaker Subhash Ghai accepted it on their behalf.
