In the tragic turn of events, the nation lost another gem in Sridevi. The 54-year-old actress passed away due to accidental drowning in Dubai on February 24. As the nation was left in shock, the Kapoor- Marwah- Ayyapan families have been trying to cope with their loss.
Boney Kapoor, Khushi Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor lost their biggest supporter in Sridevi and are trying to live with the fact that she is no more. Just after the funeral, Anil Kapoor released a joint statement of their entire family requesting for privacy. Even Boney Kapoor took to Sridevi’s Twitter asking to remember Sridevi for her great career. He even thanked for the love and support and urged everyone to give privacy to grieve.
The young girls, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor, have received love and warmth from their extended family and the fans around the world. As they try to sink in the fact their mom is no more, Janhvi Kapoor has finally spoken up about her mom Sridevi. As Janhvi will turn 21 on Wednesday, March 7, she has one request from everyone to love and cherish their parents.
In a heartwrenching tribute, Janhvi Kapoor penned the most emotional tribute to her mom Sridevi. She wrote, “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.”
Janhvi Kapoor even attached a note alongside the caption about how she is feeling at this moment. It’s been a week since Sridevi passed away. In the note, she talks about how her mom is still protecting her from sadness and pain. She said that her mom lives in her, her sister Khushi and dad Boney Kapoor. Sridevi’s ashes will be immersed in Rameswaram today.
