The sad demise of Bollywood actress Sridevi on February 24, 2018, numbed the entire nation. Sridevi was very close to her children and she enjoyed a close bond with her two daughters. To be clear, it was more of a BFF bond than mother-daughter one. And just like any other mother she also had some plans for her daughters.

Yes, just like other parents, Sridevi too wanted Janhvi to first focus on her studies and then she wanted to see her getting settle down in the life in the near future.

She said this during an interview when the actress’s comeback film English Vinglish got released.

Her lines were:


“I am perturbed by the rumors about her getting ready for films. She hasn’t even decided what she wants to do in life. Right now, I want her to concentrate on studies. When she completes her studies, ideally I would like her to get married and settle down.”

However, Sridevi’s plans were not in accordance with Jhanvi’s ambition of pursuing her interest in joining Bollywood.

But later, with the passing time, Sridevi started extending her support to Janhvi’s passion for acting and decided to make her ready for Indian film industry.

Luckily, Janhvi got a chance to make her debut with Karan Johar’s upcoming film ‘Dhadak’ in which she has been cast alongside Ishaan Khatter’.

Not only as a mother but as a mentor too, Sridevi guided Janhvi with everything that she was required to be trained.
