Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor is all set to make her acting debut in Dhadak. The film directed by Shashank Khaitan is slated to hit the theatres on July 20, 2018.
Sridevi had said that she was not too convinced about her daughters joining the industry. When asked about Sridevi’s reaction to her decision of becoming an actor, Janhvi said in an interview to The Indian Express, “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.’"
Janhvi Kapoor revealed that dad Boney Kapoor eased Sridevi 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.”
