New Delhi: Days after India lost the iconic actress Sridevi, her family and friends are still struggling to get over her sudden demise. Sridevi's elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor turned 21 on March 6 but kept her birthday a low key affair this year. She stepped out of her house to spend time with some special people.
On her birthday, Janhvi Kapoor spent quality time at an old age home reportedly. Videos and pictures of Janhvi have been shared by various fan clubs on Instagram and Twitter. A picture of the 21-year-old dressed in a simple salwar kurta and making a wish before cutting the cake and a video where everyone in the old age home is singing the birthday song for her is doing the rounds on the internet.
Here's the video:
Three days ago, Janhvi had dedicated an Instagram post with a heartfelt note to her mother.
She had written: “On my birthday, the only thing I ask of all of you is that you love your parents. Cherish them and devote yourself to making them feel that love. They have made you. And I ask that you remember my mother fondly, pray for her soul to rest in peace. Let the love and adulation you’ll shower on her continue and please know that the biggest part of my mother was the love she shared with papa. And their love is immortal because there was nothing like it in the whole world. Nothing as joyful and pure and no two people as devoted to one another as they were. Please respect that because it hurts to think anyone would ever try to tarnish it. Preserving the sanctity of what they had would mean the world not only to my mother but also to a man whose entire being revolved around her, and her two children who are all that remains of their love. I and Khushi have lost our mother but papa has lost his “Jaan”. She was so much more than just an actor or a mother or a wife. She was the ultimate and the best in all these roles. It mattered a great deal to her to give love and to get love. For people to be good and gracious and kind. She didn’t understand frustration or malice or jealousy. So let’s be that. Let’s be full of only good and give only love. That would make her happy, to know that even in death, she gave you all something. The courage and inspiration to fill yourselves with nothing but love and rid yourselves of bitterness in any way and form. That’s what she stood for. Dignity, strength and innocence.
Thank you for the love and support everyone has shown us in the past couple of days. It’s given us hope and strength and we can’t thank you all enough.(sic).”
It is extremely unfortunate that Sridevi, who was so excited about her daughter’s debut film 'Dhadak' couldn’t live to see her following in her footsteps.
Janhvi is all set to make her first film appearance in 'Dhadak', an official remake of Marathi blockbuster 'Sairat'. The film produced by Dharma Productions and directed by Shashank Khaitan will also mark the launch of Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishaan Khatter in Bollywood. The film is slated to hit theatres on July 6, 2018.
