Here’s what Sridevi wanted Janhvi Kapoor to do in life

In just two days, Janhvi Kapoor will earn the status of being a star. The star kid is already a star, but she hasn’t earned any of this. With the release of Dhadak this weekend, lil Miss Kapoor will be a star herself. While speaking to a leading daily about how her parents reacted when she broke the news of becoming an actor, she said about Sridevi, “There were a lot of sounds. There was a lot of ‘Aiyyo!’, but I think she knew that the bug had bitten this poor girl.”

She added, “When I was a kid, she really wanted me to become a doctor. I don’t know why, and I was like, ‘I am sorry mom, but I don’t have the intellect to become a doctor.’”

Kapoor revealed that dad Boney Kapoor eased her mother into agreeing to let her pursue acting. “He was very chilled out. He is like a typical Kapoor. He was very supportive. He eased mom into the idea of it. I think my parents have worked very hard to get where they are, but I think people often underestimate how hard it can be to be a producer or actor especially in their times. This is not a 9-5 job. It’s a lifestyle to be in this profession.”

She added, “He was excited that I chose to prove myself or do something with my life. Mom was like, ‘I have worked this hard because I wanted my children to have it easy, so that they have a relaxed life.’ But I think I wanted a fulfilling one. That meant much more to me. I don’t think I would have been a satisfied person had I just lived off whatever my parents gave me.”

Also starring Ishaan Khattar, Dhadak releases on 20th July.
