- 'We're like friends, sharing each other's thoughts,' said Sridevi
- 'She is always there for me,' she added
- 'What I'm wearing is approved by her,' Sridevi also said
Sridevi, who started out as a child actor, knows a thing or two about what it takes to navigate the intensely competitive and often unforgiving film industry. "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 said. Earlier this week, Sridevi told mid-day that while she was happy that Jhanvi is going to be an actress, she'd be happier still if her daughter had picked marriage.
In photos posted on social media and websites, Jhanvi Kapoor carries her 19 years with a poise that would do an older woman credit. She trends often - in fact, the Internet is more than a little obsessed with her - and her stylish outfits have been noted, discussed and admired online. Her mother also benefits from Jhanvi's fashion advice. "What I'm wearing is approved by her. She's a teenager - I go by her thoughts and it's fun. We're like friends, sharing each other,s thoughts and it's really fun to get ready. She is always there for me," Sridevi said on NDTV Spotlight (watch the show on NDTV 24x7 and NDTV.com at 10 pm on Friday).
