As Janhvi Kapoor gears up for the release of her dream Bollywood debut movie, Dhadak, there will always be the irreplaceable void of starting her movie career without her mother and veteran actress Sridevi by her darling daughter's side.
 
Ever since the trailer of Dhadak came out, comparisons between Sridevi and Janhvi begun and will continue throughout the extension of her career. 
 
When Mid-Day asked Janhvi whether she was ready for the comparisons with her famous mother, the actress shared, "No one can be prepared for it. I am her daughter, we share similar personality traits and physical attributes. I am not trying to escape any comparisons with her. Even if I have an ounce of her talent, it will be a big deal for me. Having said that, I am a different person with varied life experiences, and I want to be given that freedom to prove myself and create a space in people’s hearts that is my own. I have a sense of responsibility towards the people who admire my family’s work and I want to make them happy. Hopefully, I’ll be able to carve my own identity along with it."
 
When quizzed further on whether she is nervous about Dhadak's release, Janhvi revealed to Mid-Day, "I am nervous, but at the same time, excited. We spent the last year-and-a-half of our lives dedicated to this journey and now we are putting it out there for the world to judge and enjoy, and even dissect. For me, this has been a personal journey which is coming to an end and that feeling is a little emotional."
 
Also starring Ishaan Khatter, Dhadak is slated to release on July 20, 2018.

Jhanvi is nice but not at all like her mom

Don’t become pompous, egoistic and self obsessed with time. Be grounded and nice to people, learn from deepika, madhuri, Priyanka, karishma and Alia

Good way to hide away from criticism

At least she is aware of the reality that she doesnt even have an ounce of her mom's talent.

Good to hear she knows she has NO talent

Your mother was incredibly talented and made India proud internationally. She proved what women can achieve in a male dominated industry. One thing she taught was that hard work pays off. Sridevi’s legacy will live on forever. Legend

this is true.
1 % of sridevi's talent > kriti+jackie+sonakshi+parineeti+alia+athiya+everyone else of the young gen in bollywood
