Janhvi Kapoor is all set to enter Bollywood with Karan Johar's film 'Dhadak' opposite Shahid Kapoor's brother Ishaan Khattar
While speaking about Janvi's debut, Sridevi told mid-day, "The excitement overrules the nervousness." In Picture: Janhvi with sister Khushi Kapoor
Sridevi told mid-day that as a mother, she "can't help but give her tips about everything - from how to dress to what she eats". Yet, the actor wants her elder daughter to chart her own trajectory in the industry. In picture: Janhvi Kapoor with sister Khushi Kapoor and a friend
"Children have their own mind. When it comes to her work, I don't want to advise. She must cultivate her craft all by herself, make her own choices and chart her own path," Sridevi told mid-day in an interview
In an industry that is quick to pit actors against each other, parallels are already being drawn between Janhvi Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan's daughter, Sara, who is also set to make her debut next year
Talking about Janhvi Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan, Sridevi told mid-day, "Competition can never be eliminated from this industry. There is nothing wrong with it. It keeps you on your toes, making you work harder. But, the biggest challenge lay in bettering your craft, and faring better than you did the last time."
Janhvi already finds an aide in Sara, a friendship that doesn't seem particularly peculiar to Sridevi
"You don't have to turn your face away from each other just because you are pitted against one another at work," Sridevi told mid-day
While further speaking about her daughters Janhvi and Khushi, Sridevi said, "We are like friends. We spend a lot of time together. Our routine is always centered around each other."
Sridevi shared how her intentions were misunderstood when her daughters accompanied her to film events. "Earlier, I would take them to social gatherings and premieres that I attended. But they (people) thought I was promoting Janhvi," Sridevi said
"Walking with my girls made me feel like a proud mother. But to the world, it became a reason to misunderstand me," Sridevi said talking about Janhvi and Khushi accompanying her to events
While speaking about Janhvi and her Bollywood debut, Sridevi said, "I don't think it's a bad industry. I am a creation of this world. But, as a parent, it would give me greater joy to see her married. But her happiness matters more, and if she does well as an actress, I will be a proud mother."
Janhvi consults her parents for career-related matters, says Sridevi. "She is a wise girl, but she insists on our help for everything. Boneyji and I are aware of every detail of her career," said Sridevi
