Today, the beautiful eldest daughter of late Sridevi, Jahnvi Kapoor, turned 21, and she celebrated it in the most noble and beautiful manner. Instagram was flooded with the pictures of upcoming young actress spending her birthday in an old age home with elderly people and took blessings from them. Her gesture smashed the internet with pictures and birthday wishes soon after. Here’s how Jahnvi won the hearts of many:

It must have been an emotional day, as it’s the first time that Janhvi celebrated her birthday without the person who brought her into the world. Though no-one can describe that feeling, Jahnvi must have controlled her tears by soaking up her sorrow. After all, she was extremely close to her mother and her absence must have been deeply missed.
But her family, especially her sisters, stood by her to make sure she’s given all the love on her special day. Boney Kapoor was right beside her as she lit the chocolate cakes.

It was the turn of “Neerja” actress Sonam Kapoor to show her love and join in the celebration as well. And she made sure Jahnvi wasn’t alone! The step-sister took to social media to wish her sister on her birthday and her Instagram post is proof of that:
This celebratory post soon turned into a battlefield of unkind comments and filled social media with hatred and shaming. The users shamed the senior Kapoor sister for being insensitive at a time when there’s been a death in the family and criticised her for her inappropriate gesture.
Here is the result of Sonam showering some sisterly love on social media:
A bad example?
Can’t get over Sridevi’s death, still!
Too early for any party!
Heartless and heartbreaking decision!
While no-one has the right to comment on anyone’s family matter, it’s to be understood that celebrities serve in the public eye, but aren’t public servants. Will she respond to such heartless comments is yet to be seen, but knowing Sonam, she would be laughing at such reactions on her post.
