Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor is all set to make her debut onscreen with the film Dhadak alongside Ishaan Khatter. Directed by Shashank Khaitan, the film is a remake of Marathi superhit film, Sairat (2016).

In an interview with PTI, Janhvi Kapoor opened up about her late mom Sridevi and her legacy and the expectations people have of her.

The actor said, "I'm aware of it (the legacy) but I don't think there's a fear. I feel like mom has earned and got so much love, gratitude and adulation from people. There's a lot of gratitude I feel towards that, which even she felt. I want to make them happy. I want to earn the same kind of love."

She added, "I know I've to work for it, I want to. I feel there's a responsibility towards them (audience). I want to make them happy. They've given my mom so much, my mom has given them so much, I want to earn it. I will, hopefully."

The Dhadak actor revealed that she didn't let her mom involve in her acting process as it was her own journey. "She supported me a lot but I think both of us were clear that she wanted this to be my own journey. I remember reading lines with her around. But she never said 'Do it like this or that'. She would always say, 'I want you to find this on your own, do it on your own'," said Janhvi.

She said that she told her mom to not even come to the sets as she wanted Sridevi not to see her work until it is fully done. "I had even told her that I don't want her to come on sets, ever. That 'I don't want you to see what I am doing till I'm fully done with it, I don't want you to tell me how I should do it and let me do this on my own," Kapoor stated.

The actor also added, "It has helped me in a way that I understand mom's creative space, how to read situations in movies, what she considered good acting or bad acting. So, that has formed opinions for me as well."
