Janhvi Kapoor discusses her “unfair advantage” and explains why she would prevent Sridevi from attending the Dhadak shoot

Share

<p>Janhvi Kapoor has acknowledged that she is the daughter of Sridevi. In an interview with Agenda Aaj Tak, Janhvi spoke about the legacy of her late mother and the actress, and how, in the past, she had thought that being her daughter gave her an “unfair advantage.” Janhvi stated that she refused to follow Sridevi’s advice and forbade her from visiting the sets of her first film, Dhadak. The actress called the decision to pass on her connection to the late Sridevi, “the best actor to come out of India,” “very silly.”</p>

<p>“I felt like I had an unfair advantage once.”<br />
“I was so conscious that I wanted to stay aloof from my mother when I was doing my first film (Dhadak), because people were saying that I got my first film because I am Sridevi’s daughter,” the actor said in Hindi. I left for another vacation, believing I wouldn’t need her assistance. I would behave in the exact opposite manner if she did. I used to warn her not to come assist me on the sets. When I thought, “How many people have access to Sridevi Kapoor, who is the best actor to come out of India?” I used to feel as if I had an unfair edge, a trump card. I used to think that even though I already had an unfair edge, taking her counsel would make it much worse.</p>
<p>Sridevi, according to Janhvi, “was dying to be on set” with her.<br />
“I feel that was very silly,” Janhvi Kapoor said. Since I am her daughter, I am unable to avoid it. I regret now realizing that she was desperate to be on the set with me, to support me as a mother and that I took people too seriously. I also refused to allow her. It’s one of my greatest regrets, in my opinion, because there are moments when I wish I could have simply said, “Mumma, I have a shoot. Please come quickly.” Had she been present, maybe? I believe I’ve finally realized it. These days, I take great pride in being my parents’ daughter. The fact that Janhvi Kapoor is Sridevi’s daughter makes it impossible for anybody to have a moral discussion about it.</p>
<p>Janhvi made her acting debut in the commercially successful love film Dhadak in 2018. She will soon be featured in Devara and Mr. and Mrs. Mahi. The Hindi version of the 2016 Marathi film Sairat was directed by Shashank Khaitan and co-starred Ishaan Khatter.</p>
