Janhvi Kapoor is all set to make her smashing debut with Karan Johar’s Dhadak and we can’t help but get all emotional and proud of the fact that she held her head high despite the tragedy of her mom Sridevi passing away and completed her film. In her first interview she spoke about everything from her first film to her reaction to paparazzi clicking her and of course, her mother’s death. Earthy, real, demure and delicate Janhvi is an embodiment of innocence on Vogue’s cover and also in the real life. She wore a floral dress with her natural hair in waves as she dazzled on the cover. We have ALL the inside pics from the shoot right here.
Speaking about her foray into films, she confessed to Karan Johar who was interviewing her, that Sridevi never wanted her to come in movies but was okay with Khushi doing the same. Janhvi said, “She was more relaxed about Khushi getting into films. She thought I was naïve, that I wasn’t thick-skinned enough. She wanted us to live a more relaxed life. She loved what she did but you know it was intense.” She also regaled KJo with a funny story when Sri dropped Janhvi to US to study acting and was very protective about the fact that her daughter is cut off from the harsh realities of life. Janhvi reminisced,” She said, “Phool ko kichad mein chhod kar chali ja rahi hu main!” (“I’m leaving my little flower in the muck”). In the wild, wild west. I think it’s cool to be naïve. It takes a certain amount of courage to not be pessimistic. I’d like to believe there is good in everyone.”
