- My comment was misunderstood, wrote Sridevi
- Don't believe end goal for girls is to get married, she wrote
- Sridevi had said that she'd rather see Jhanvi chose marriage over acting
Read Sridevi's clarification:
The quote Sridevi was clarifying was given in an interview to mid-day earlier this week. She said, Jhanvi wanted to do the film and initially, "I wasn't in favour. I don't think it's a bad industry. I am a creation of this world. But, as a parent, it would give me greater joy to see her married. But her happiness matters more, and if she does well as an actress, I will be a proud mother."
On Wednesday, Sridevi told NDTV, "I'm very tensed, this industry has given me so much but it's tough. She has to work hard."
Jhanvi Kapoor, 19, is an aspiring actress and her debut will reportedly be handled by Karan Johar - rumour has it, she's been cast in Student Of The Year 2. Jhanvi and her younger sister Khushi are the daughters of Sridevi and producer Boney Kapoor.
Sridevi, star of films such as Mr India and English Vinglish, is currently awaiting the release of MOM, her 300th film. MOM releases on July 7.
