Janhvi is Sridevi and Boney Kapoor's elder daughter and her sister Khushi recently completed her school. Boney Kapoor was married to Mona Shourie and their children are Arjun Kapoor (also an actor) and Anshula. In May, Karan Johar interviewed Janhvi for Vogue magazine, in which he said that after Sridevi's death "the family has actually come together."

Speaking about brother Arjun Kapoor, Janhvi told Mumbai Mirror: "I've realised Arjun is very wise, just like dad. They can comfort and guide you in a way that many people can't. Everyone has always said such nice things about him and the way he's been brought up. He values honesty and tells me to be respectful towards people."
