Janhvi Kapoor made quite an impression with her stellar performance in her recent OTT film Good Luck Jerry. Critics and film buffs praised the late Sridevi’s daughter and gave justice to her character. The Dhadak actress, carrying on her mother’s legacy that will remain inimitable for ages to come, is often questioned about what she learned from Sridevi.
During a candid interaction with Ranveer Allabadia on his YouTube podcast The Ranveer Show, the actress opened up about the numerous lessons her versatile mother imparted. She shared that she unknowingly embodies Sridevi’s behavior in her daily life. Janhvi said, “I think if she was around, I would have been able to answer more openly but now that she is not around, I think it is arrogant of me for people to draw parallels between me and my mother. The way I walk across the corridor in the morning, apparently I walk like her. The times I eat and the sounds I make are exactly like hers. Apparently, I sound like her. Apparently, I cry like her. I’m just as needy as her, I guess.”
The Ghost Stories actor added, “I switch on and off in front of the camera a bit like her. I think I am sensitive like her. She always stood for honor and innocence. In my head, even after all these years in the industry, she was still a child, so naive, innocent, sheltered in the ways of the world. And I think that’s what made her art so corrupt and made her so incorruptible as a person.”
