Will Janhvi Kapoor work in any remakes of mom Sridevi’s films?
Since the time Janhvi Kapoor’s entry in Bollywood has been announced, there have been constant comparisons with her mother, Sridevi. Besides the comparison and the pressure of being a star kid, Janhvi has also been asked about Sridevi’s movies and which movie she would like to be a part of if it is remade, in most of the interviews.
In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, the actress was asked if she’d love to star in a remake of a Sridevi movie, produced by her father. The young star replied, “It’s daunting to even think about it, as it’s ten times more responsibility,” and added, “I need to first prove myself to be deserving of such a great opportunity.”
Earlier, in one of the interviews, Janhvi Kapoor had said that she would love to do a remake of ‘Sadma’. When DNA had asked Janhvi about which films of the late actress Sridevi, if remade, would she like to star in, Janhvi said, “It has to be ‘Sadma’. It’s such a touching movie. I can watch it anytime and I think it’s one of the best films I’ve ever seen. I can play my mother’s role or even Kamalji’s (Haasan) role, if there’s a gender reversal in the remake.”
Janhvi also spoke about her family’s reaction to her debut film, ‘Dhadak’. She told HT, “Khushi (younger sister) was crying… She looked at me and said, ‘Why are you worrying?’ and then started crying again. Papa actually saw the film a month ago, and as soon as the screening was over, he went to the temple. That night he came to my room and held me tight and started crying.”
Dhadak also starred Ishaan Khatter and was directed by Shashank Khaitan. The film released on July 20.
