Ever since veteran actress Sridevi's demise the Kapoor family has been supporting each other a lot. The entire family was in attendance at Janhvi Kapoor's film, Dhadak's trailer launch. Boney Kapoor along wth Janhvi and Khushi even holidayed in London were Arjun Kapoor was shooting for his next film Namaste England
As Janhvi Kapoor turned cover girl for Vogue India's June issue, she knew that her mother is looking out for her, in spirit. Considering Karan Johar is launching her in Bollywood with Dhadak later this year, it was only fitting that the mentor also takes on a new role for his protege — that of an interviewer.

In the interview, Janhvi Kapoor talked about Sridevi's "whacked-out experiences" in the industry, "In the '80s and '90s, actors would do multiple shifts working simultaneously on different films. So, mum was doing three movies with the same director, who was also the actor. They were in Ooty and he decided to shoot songs for all the three films together. He'd shoot a sequence, then cut and walk to the next location, and the entire cast and crew would follow him. At one point, he completed a shot, started walking and, next thing you know, he's behind a tree taking a piss — with the entire cast and crew behind him, watching. So he went to take a piss, and everyone assumed they were going to the next location! Mum was part of all three films. She would figure out which movie they were shooting for, by his wigs, which would change for each role."
Inevitably, in the interview, Janhvi Kapoor comes to describing life post her mother's untimely demise in February. "The family has come together. It's made us feel safe and secure. Even for papa [Boney Kapoor], it's a source of comfort. It has definitely tied us together. We've lost mum, and I don't think that's a loss any of us will ever get over."
Janhvi Kapoor was later spotted at a multiplex in Juhu with Dhadak co-star Ishaan Khatter. The trailer of Dhadak displays an enchanting chemistry and a fresh romance between Janhvi and Ishaan. The trailer release date was not less than a grand celebration for the Kapoor family. From father Boney Kapoor to sister Khushi Kapoor, uncle Anil Kapoor, Sanjay, Maheep, cousins Shanaya, Jahaan were in attendance at the trailer launch with Karan Johar by their side
Brother Arjun Kapoor, who couldn't attend the trailer launch, since he was busy shooting in London, wrote an emotional note for baby sister. He wrote, "Tomorrow you will be part of the audience forever @janhvikapoor cause your trailer comes out... Firstly, sorry I'm not there in mumbai but I'm by your side, don't worry. I just wanted you to know this profession is amazing if you work hard, be honest, learn to take the accolades with the brickbats, respect opinions, yet follow ur own path & instinct. It's not gonna be easy but I know your are ready for all the madness that will ensue. All the best for #dhadak! I'm certain my friends @shashankkhaitan & @karanjohar have presented you & @ishaan95 as the modern Romeo & Juliet with elan!!! (sic)"
