Janhvi Kapoor cannot accept her mom Sridevi’s death, says she is still in denial stage.
Losing a parent can have the most devastating affect on a child. But Tinseltown’s new entrant Janhvi Kapoor gave the world a new outlook by becoming more responsible and work oriented diva. Although, she is still not past the denial phase, Janhvi Kapoor opens up about her superstar mother Sridevi’s sudden and shocking demise, her family’s new found bond and her focus on work.
In her recent interview with Filmfare , the millennial debutante, spoke about how she and her family are still in a denial stage and cannot really accept the tragedy. She said,” I think, I was still in that state of shock, to be very honest. I think I am still in shock. None of it has been processed. Like, I have no memory of three or four months.”
Janhvi’s life has been turned around after losing the most important person of her life. She had to divert her attention and energy completely to work so that she has her mind in place. She debuted in Dhadak, opposite Ishaan Khattar in July, 2018. Janhvi Kapoor mentioned,” I wanted to shoot the next day (after the cremation). But the shoot got cancelled. I was like, No, I must go back, I need to be on the set. I thought I was going to lose my mind if I didn’t do that. And I would have, promise you, if I didn’t have Dhadak. If I didn’t have the opportunity to act or be in front of the camera, there would have been no purpose in life to keep me going.”
Sridevi was a hands on mom. She was so very caring that Janhvi and her sibling Khushi, didn’t have to think about themselves. But the sudden mishappening changed the role and dynamic of the whole family. Both Arjun(Kapoor) and Anshula(Kapoor) are now the strength and support system for the sister duo. When asked about the family’s equation now, Janhvi said,” Dad has been the mother in these last few months. He’s been so hands on. It’s not just him, there’s a new family dynamic with Arjun bhaiya (Kapoor) and Anshula didi. They’ve been an immense source of strength and support.”
