Mumbai: Sridevi, who is all set to make a splash on the silverscreen with yet another gritty performance in ‘Mom’, is a doting mother to two daughters – Jhanvi and Khushi in real life. The 1980s diva wasn’t apparently in favour of letting Jhanvi do films!

In an interview with Mid-Day, Sridevi opened up about her equation with her daughters and also spoke about Jhanvi’s desire to pursue a career in acting.

Talking about Jhanvi’s decision to join the film industry, Sridevi said, “She wanted to do the film and initially, I wasn't in favour. I don't think it's a bad industry. I am a creation of this world. But, as a parent, it would give me greater joy to see her married. But her happiness matters more, and if she does well as an actress, I will be a proud mother.”
