Janhvi Kapoor, the eldest daughter of producer Boney Kapoor and the late actress Sridevi is all set for her debut movie ‘Dhadak’ opposite Ishaan Khatter, directed by Shashank Khaitan. The film is an official Hindi-language remake of the hit Marathi film, Sairat.

Sridevi left her fans and the entire film fraternity mourning on February 24 due to accidental drowning while attending a family wedding in Dubai, UAE. Janhvi was backed in every step by her mom, but the actress still can’t get past of a scene where she felt her mother’s presence.

In a recent interview with IANS, while talking about her experience of filming Dhadak, she mentions Sridevi’s presence. “I am my mumma’s daughter, so I look like her, but I know I am different. There was that one montage shot where I am drinking milk in a scene. For a fraction of second, I thought that was mumma… I was like ‘Oh God, wasn’t it her? Actually, in that shot, I saw my side profile”, she said.


Janhvi reasoned it out stating, “I have one such image of mumma where she used to have juice in the early morning. So the moment I woke up and looked out for her around me, I would see her drinking juice from a side. So yes, that was one moment.”

Dhadak is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, and is scheduled to release on July 20, 2018.
