Want to earn same-kind of love like mom: Janhvi Kapoor
Gearing up for her debut in "Dhadak", Janhvi Kapoor says she hopes to earn the same amount of love from the audience like Sridevi received. Her foray in films comes a few months after Sridevi's death this February. Janhvi, who stars opposite Ishaan Khatter in the Hindi adaptation of Marathi blockbuster "Sairat", says she's aware of her mom's legacy and wishes to honor it.
"Mom has earned and got so much love, gratitude, and adulation from people. There's a lot of gratitude I feel towards that, which even she felt. I want to make them (audience) happy. I want to earn the same kind of love," Janhvi said.
"I know I've to work for it (love). I want to," Janhvi said. She says Sridevi never interfered in her acting-process and wanted her to experience things on her own. "She supported me a lot. She never said, 'Do it like this or that.' She would always say, 'I want you to find this on your own, do it on your own'," Jahnvi said.
Janhvi said she asked Sridevi to not to come on sets. She told her mom, "I don't want you to see what I am doing till I'm fully done with it, I don't want you to tell me how I should do it." Janhvi, 21, says coming from a film family instilled a sense of maturity in her to understand the goings-on of showbiz.
