Janhvi Kapoor is gearing up for the release of her Bollywood debut movie, Dhadak. Besides Janhvi, no one was more excited for her debut than her mother and veteran actress Sridevi
 
However, Sridevi breathed her last a few months ago and was not able to see her daughter shine on screen for the first time.
 
A few days after the last rites, Janhvi sprung into action and completed the finishing touches of Dhadak as it was unanimously decided to not delay the release date. 
 
Talking about the same, Janhvi said to Mumbai Mirror, "It was an organic decision. Surprisingly, the only thing I don’t associate with work is mom. Both of us had consciously decided that this would be my own journey. Acting is the only thing I knew to do without her."
 
"Working was the easy part, everything else was a struggle," Janhvi added. 
 
Janhvi also got candid about her first day on the sets of Dhadak where she was joined by her doting parents and how it was a welcoming presence for her. "It was my moment of truth and fortunately, it went smoothly. The first shot was okayed in one take. We had prepped so much that I wasn’t nervous and felt like everything in my life had been building up to this moment," Janhvi shared.
 
Comparisons between Sridevi and Janhvi have already begun and Janhvi stresses on the fact that no one can come close to her legendary mother. Janhvi stated, "Hopefully, I’m worthy enough to be given the chance to create my own identity."
 
While Janhvi has not watched many of her mother's films, her favourites of Sridevi are Sadma and Mom.
 
Meanwhile, Janhvi stars opposite Ishaan Khatter in this Shashank Khaitan directorial. Produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, Dhadak is slated to release on July 20, 2018.

Siri devi was multi talented, if she had gotten the role for kid then he looks like a kid, in naa jaane kahan se aayi hai song she was looking very pretty. In sadma she has done different role and made the movie super hit. In Gumrah movie her acting was awesome in jail. kaHan se shuru karain unki taarif aur kahan khatam karaine. Speechless . No words.

Star kids only get the first break. After that it’s pure charm and talent. Very few star kids actually make it big.

Success as they say skips a gen.

Watch Madhuri's films instead for real powerhouse acting lessons. She is the most versatile actor in India today

Lol. I'm not an Indian, I've seen some of the movies of these two actresses and honestly comparing Madhuri to Sridevi is the greatest insult to Sridevi's talent.

you are funny, power house of talent...hahaha...hahaha

So how did Sridevi really die?

girllll
watch ur moms films
as many as you can
her movies are the best acting lessons for any newcomer - hands down...

She should watch all her moms movies

Sridevi will live forever

girl is articulate
mre articulate thn many actors and actresses older than her

maybe acting was and is janhvi's own journey but definitely the life around it - maintaining a lifestyle to optimise the career - knowing how to handle the media - all that definitely has a sridevi touch to it

i think not only janhvi's but everyone's favourite sridevi movie was sadmaa
that was just acting genius

now I wish she had done the bahubali movie.
