Janhvi Kapoor shares a heartwarming picture with mom Sridevi on her 55th birthday
Remembering her mother and the first female superstar of Indian cinema, Janhvi Kapoor shared a throwback picture with her mommy dearest Sridevi, on her 55th birth anniversary.
Janhvi who has been her mother’s favourite child took to her Instagram handle and shared a heartwarming picture with her. Though she did caption the picture, it spoke a lot about the ‘Dhadak’ actress’ feelings about her beloved mum.
Have a look at the adorable picture shared by Janhvi here:
The ‘Chandni’ of Bollywood passed away on February 24 due to accidental drowning in a Dubai Hotel. Her untimely demise not only came as a rude shock to her million fans but also to the actress’ family. Sri was more than excited for Janhvi’s Bollywood debut film ‘Dhadak’ and had stood by her through thick and thin. However, as the fate had it, she left for a heavenly abode months before her daughter’s film debut.
Post her mother’s demise, the 21-year-old had shared an emotional note which read, ‘ There’s is a gnawing hollowness in my chest that I know I’ll have to learn how to live with. Even with all this emptiness, I still feel your love. I feel you are protecting me from sadness and pain. Every time I close my eyes, I only have good things to remember.‘
On my birthday, the only thing I ask of all of you is that you love your parents. Cherish them and devote yourself to making them feel that love. They have made you. And I ask that you remember my mother fondly, pray for her soul to rest in peace. Let the love and adulation you’ll showered on her continue and please know that the biggest part of my mother was the love she shared with papa. And their love is immortal because there was nothing like it in the whole world. Nothing as joyful and pure and no two people as devoted to one another as they were. Please respect that because it hurts to think anyone would ever try to tarnish it. Preserving the sanctity of what they had would mean the world not only to my mother but also to a man who’s entire being revolved around her, and her two children who are all that remains of their love. Me and Khushi have lost our mother but papa has lost his “Jaan”. She was so much more than just an actor or a mother or a wife. She was the ultimate and the best in all these roles. It mattered a great deal to her to give love and to get love. For people to be good and gracious and kind. She didn’t understand frustration or malice or jealousy. So let’s be that. Let’s be full of only good and give only love. That would make her happy, to know that even in death, she gave you all something. The courage and inspiration to fill yourselves with nothing but love and rid yourselves of bitterness in any way and form. That’s what she stood for. Dignity, strength and innocence. Thank you for the love and support everyone has shown us in the past couple of days. It’s given us hope and strength and we can’t thank you all enough.
We miss you, Sridevi.
