Janhvi Kapoor recalls that Sridevi was “questioned” for doing Lamhe at the peak of her career, which she says has imbibed her mother’s vision.

Janhvi Kapoor spoke about her mother Sridevi’s artistic choices, saying that she deliberately decided not to do glamorous roles early in her career, even though it would have been a natural thing to do.

the actor Janhvi Kapoor talked about living up to his family’s legacy in a new interview. He understands that a big reason behind his popularity, especially in the early stages of his career, was his parents: late actress Sridevi and film producer Boney Kapoor. Sridevi died in 2018 a few months before Janhvi’s acting debut.

At the India Today Conclave, Janhvi was reminded that her mother had made Lamhe “at the peak of her career”, and was “questioned” about her decision to do the film. Lamhe, directed by Yash Chopra, entered the box office. She was asked if she also makes career decisions like her mother. Janhvi said, “She’s my mother, and I’ve grown up listening to her take on cinema, learning from her taste for cinema, embracing her art…”

He continued: “Naturally, I’ve internalized certain aspects of it. It’s also got a lot to do with the fact that I don’t like to be put in a box. I like to take an unpredictable route and learn from it. It would come very naturally to me to do fancy roles where you come in and do two or three comedy scenes and dancing. And I’m looking forward to doing roles like that because I think it’s really fun, and it’s very popular with people. But that’s what I expected everyone to do, so I felt the need to do the complete opposite for a while, and now I’m thinking about it.”

After five years of playing mostly non-glamorous roles, traditionally speaking, Janhvi has signed her first mass entertainer – Jr NTR’s next film. Elsewhere, Janhvi has acted in films like Dhadak, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, Mili and Good Luck Jerry. Next time they will see Bawaal, and Mr. and Mrs. Mahi.

In an interview with Karan Johar, before the release of his latest film Jab Tak Hai Jaan, the late. Yash Chopra praised Sridevi for her professionalism. That he returned to filming two weeks after his father’s death, and shot two comedy scenes for Lamhe. “At the time, I thought he was very professional. Such a wonderful artist. At that moment, he forgot everything. It made a wonderful scene. Then I understood that this is the reason, the secret of his success”, he recalled.
