Janhvi Kapoor’s debut film Dhadak has received great reviews from the critics as well as the audience. Janhvi Kapoor has given a fine performance as Parthavi in the film which also stars Ishaan Khatter.

Janhvi talked about the film’s success in an interview to Hindustan Times. She shared her father Boney Kapoor and sister Khushi Kapoor’s reaction to the film. Janhvi said that they got emotional after seeing her on screen.

Talking about her mother Sridevi, Janhvi said, “She was such a creatively fuelled person, so emotional and sensitive. It was vibrant energy to have her around. Her knowledge of cinema and acting, I think, is unparallelled — she did 350 films from the age of four. Acting, for her, was instinctive; it was like breathing, not a textbook thing. She never gave me tips, but watching her was everything, even in daily life.”

When asked if she would like to star in a remake of Sridevi’s film produced by Boney Kapoor, Janhvi said, “It’s daunting to even think about it, as it’s ten times more responsibility. I need to first prove myself to be deserving of such a great opportunity.”

About dad Boney Kapoor, Janhvi said, “My father is a more creatively inclined producer; he gets very involved. From his perspective, I know what actors are like when they’re behaving in a certain way, and how he needs to take care of technicians, how post-production is as important as pre-production and shooting.”

Love child..shattered so many lives. had to make up by becoming 'sweet' person. she must ve craved for acceptance all her life.

Yes.. she is their love child.. and your comment shows that you were born out of HATE!!!... let me know how that felt, huh??

ha ha ha good one!!

what is there to feel? see how little bit of affection from her half- siblings makes her so happy, these kids always crave acceptance. sridevi's marriage was not legal. we remember how her birth was written about those days ' whatever had to happen has happened'. i rem Filmfare writing this in 1997. Be mature and accept facts.

Yet ur mother got hooked to drugs.

I hope the family release some unseen footage of Sridevi. I miss her immensely

Janhvi's "first ever" film and she did a good job. Sridevi's everything in life, career, etc..was her mother. When her mother passed away, Sridevi was over.

Oh pls stop it now. Movie is released and doing well will become a hit too now give it a break atleast till your next release
