Sridevi gets candid about Jhanvi Kapoor’s Bollywood debut and more. Recently, when a leading tabloid quizzed Sridevi about her daughter’s ambitions, she stated, “While we may slog, we’re protective of our children and don’t want to expose them to stress and toil. But a friend’s daughter, who was pushed into marriage early, still complains, even after six years of a happy marriage. I didn’t want Jhanvi to blame me so I gave my consent even though I wish she’d stayed away from this industry because I didn’t want my child to go through all the pain, sacrifices and heartache.”
Talking about her younger daughter Khushi Kapoor, she said, “She has already started modelling and it will end up with her saying, ‘Mujhe bhi acting karni hai’.”
There were several reports that Jhanvi will be pairing opposite Tiger Shroff in Karan Johar’s Student of the Year 2. Sridevi did not give any confirmation and said, “Wait for the announcement, it’ll come soon enough and aapko khud pata chal jayega.”
Sridevi is set to be back on the big screen after five years with the thriller film Mom. During several media interactions, she was floored with questions of her daughter Jhanvi Kapoor’s Bollywood debut.
