- 'But mummy, I was with Gauri aunty,' said Jhanvi
- 'Welcome to my world,' Sridevi told her in reply
- 'You have to be prepared for all this,' Sridevi added
According to previous reports, Jhanvi Kapoor was overwhelmed after Ranbir greeted her in a Bollywood gathering - the 19-year-old is a regular at such parties and will reported be launched in a Karan Johar film.
Sridevi has been working since she was a child and had a flourishing career in the South by the time she appeared in her first Hindi film, 1975's Julie. Having completed more than four decades in Bollywood, Sridevi knows the film industry functions along a set formula, which spares nobody. "Once we decided to be in this industry we have to be ready for everything. You have to be strong but hard working. No pain no gain," she told NDTV. Details of Jhanvi's debut haven't yet been made public but the 53-year-old actress did say, "Very tensed, this industry has given me so much but it's tough. She has to work hard."
Earlier this week, Sridevi told mid-day that she would have preferred to see Jhanvi married rather than an actress but that she will always be by her side. "She 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," said Sridevi.
Jhanvi Kapoor is also known for setting fashion trends and adored by the Internet. Sridevi, who will next be seen in MOM, admitted that her daughter often styles her and that she defers to Jhanvi's teenage sensibilities. Jhanvi is the eldest of Sridevi and her filmmaker husband Boney Kapoor's two children.
