"For me, they will always be kids. But they seem to have taken less after me and more after my bold screen image. Last year, when Khushi wrote a post about body shaming on Instagram, I was pleasantly surprised to see my kid turn into a strong, opinionated and sharp young woman," said Sridevi in an exclusive interview with mid-day earlier
Sridevi opened up about her relationship with her daughters Jhanvi and Khushi in an exclusive interview with mid-day. "We are like friends. We spend a lot of time together. Our routine is always centered around each other," says Sridevi
Though not much is known about Sridevi and Boney Kapoor's daughters, the yesteryear diva describes the girls as feisty
Preferring not to discuss Jhanvi Kapoor's Bollywood debut, Student Of The Year 2 (SOTY 2), the 53-year-old shares 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 Jhanvi. Walking with my girls made me feel like a proud mother. But to the world, it became a reason to misunderstand me," Sridevi says, adding that she discouraged overexposure when SOTY 2 came Jhanvi's way
"She wanted to do the film and initially, I wasn't in favour. 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," says Sridevi
Jhanvi 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."
Sridevi has said that language won't be a barrier for her 19-year-old daughter Jhanvi when it comes to her acting debut
Asked if she would let Jhanvi make her acting debut with a Tamil film, Sridevi told reporters: "I don't think language will be a barrier. If we come across a good script and if we feel it will be good for her, then why not?"
Amid speculations that Jhanvi will be launched by Karan Johar, Sridevi added that it's too early to talk about her daughter's acting career
Sridevi's younger daughter Khushi was in the news for "auditioning" for a dance-based show, but the veteran actress has denied the rumour
It was reported that Khushi auditioned for choreographer-filmmaker Remo D'souza's "Dance Plus" show. But Sridevi says it is "wrong news"
"Khushi is not participating in any kind of dance class or any show. It is not at all true. We are really surprised… where this came from," Sridevi said
Sridevi added, "The other day, we were laughing at the rumour. My daughter came and asked ‘Where is this rumour coming from mumma?' I said 'This rumour came out of the blue'."
Describing her relationship with her daughters, Sridevi said: "I am not possessive, but very protective. We are more like friends, share and discuss everything."
Sridevi has also shared several throwback photos from Jhanvi and Khushi's childhood days on her Instagram account. Fans would love to see these wonderful pictures
