Janhvi Kapoor Recalls The First Time Arjun And Anshula Came To Her After Sridevi’s Death3rd January 2019
The year 2018 was a big one for Janhvi Kapoor for both, good and bad reasons. While she had the most painful experience of losing her mother Sridevi early in 2018, she also went through the process of developing a beautiful bond with her step-siblings, Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor. On the professional front, the starlet made her Bollywood debut opposite Ishaan Khatter which did quite well at the box office. Recently, in an interview with Filmfare editor Jitesh Pillai, Janhvi opened up about how she felt about everything in the year that just went by.
Janhvi was shooting for her first Bollywood film Dhadak when her mother Sridevi Kapoor passed away. Despite the unbearable loss and pain, Janhvi showed up a lot of courage and got back on her feet in no time. She returned to work in some time after her mother’s last rites were performed and was even applauded for being so strong and professional. Well, no matter how much courage the young girl showed up after her losing her mother, it is hard to imagine the pain that one goes through when they lose an important part of their life.
Janhvi recently opened up about how she coped up with everything and how life has been like for her after Sridevi’s death. Here is what 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.”
Post Sridevi’s demise, Janhvi and her sister Khushi found a new family in their step-siblings, Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor. She recalled what marked the beginning of this new bond:
“You know at the end of the day, we have the same blood in us. I don’t remember anything of those four months but I do remember that one day when we were sitting in Harsh (Anil Kapoor’s son) Bhaiya’s room and Arjun Bhaiya and Anshula (Arjun Kapoor’s sister) Didi came in — I think that was the one day when I felt like, ‘Ok maybe we might be okay.”
Anshula and Arjun have been the pillars of strength for Janhvi and Khushi ever since they lost their mother.
On the work front, Janhvi is currently busy shooting for her next film which is a biopic based on India’s first female aviator Gunjan Saxena. She will also be seen in Karan Johar directorial Takht, which also stars Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal and Alia Bhatt in lead roles.
