In a recent interview with Mashable India, Janhvi recalled a particularly difficult moment when she had a panic attack on a dance reality show that paid tribute to her late mother. “So, they played an audio-visual of all my mother’s songs with an emotional voiceover, and these kids started dancing to pay homage. It was beautiful, but I wasn’t ready. I couldn’t breathe anymore. I started howling and crying. I ran off the stage and went to my van. Had a proper panic attack. They obviously cut all that out and instead put up another clip of me clapping and smiling,” she shared.

Despite the enormous loss, Janhvi had to continue with the promotions for Dhadak. She mentioned that her team was cautious about not bringing up Sridevi, but they were unaware that the show would pay tribute to her mother. Janhvi's reaction was immediate and overwhelming, as she was not prepared for the emotional impact of the tribute.

Janhvi also revealed that after Sridevi's death, she threw herself into promoting her film as a way to cope. However, this led to misunderstandings. “People thought her mother’s death did not affect her,” she explained, adding that she was judged harshly whether she mentioned her mother or appeared cheerful. Janhvi's candid reflections shed light on the complexities of grieving in the public eye and the misconceptions that can arise from it. Her upcoming film Mr & Mrs Mahi, directed by Sharan Sharma and starring Rajkummar Rao, is set to hit theatres on May 31. She will also appear in Ulajh, releasing on July 5, and the highly anticipated film Devara, opposite Jr. NTR and Saif Ali Khan.
