Sonam Kapoor On Cousin Janhvi’s Birthday: A Strong Girl Became A Woman Today.
It is Legendary actor Sridevi’s elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor’s birthday today. On her 21st birthday, Janhvi’s cousin, Neerja actress Sonam Kapoor posted a picture of Janhvi with an inspirational message. Sharing a beautiful photo of Janhvi, Sonam captioned the image on her Instagram-“To one of the strongest girls I know, who became a woman today. Happy birthday, jannu.”
Designer Manish Malhotra, who was a close friend of her mother, shared a picture of the trio and wrote: “Happy Birthday, my dearest Janhvi. May God bless you with happiness, love, peace and just everything.”
A few days ago, Janhvi poured her heart out in a tribute to her mother after her untimely demise in an Instagram post. With the post, she shared some candid clicks of Sridevi with her family. Her words in the letter left her followers on social media teary-eyed as she began with, “there’s a gnawing hollowness in my chest that I know I have to learn to live with’. She also requested all to respect the relationship her father Boney Kapoor shared with his ‘jaan’ Sridevi. Sridevi died on February 24 by accidentally drowning in the bathtub of the hotel room she was staying in Dubai.
On my birthday, the only thing I ask of all of you is that you love your parents. Cherish them and devote yourself to making them feel that love. They have made you. And I ask that you remember my mother fondly, pray for her soul to rest in peace. Let the love and adulation you’ll showered on her continue and please know that the biggest part of my mother was the love she shared with papa. And their love is immortal because there was nothing like it in the whole world. Nothing as joyful and pure and no two people as devoted to one another as they were. Please respect that because it hurts to think anyone would ever try to tarnish it. Preserving the sanctity of what they had would mean the world not only to my mother but also to a man who’s entire being revolved around her, and her two children who are all that remains of their love. Me and Khushi have lost our mother but papa has lost his “Jaan”. She was so much more than just an actor or a mother or a wife. She was the ultimate and the best in all these roles. It mattered a great deal to her to give love and to get love. For people to be good and gracious and kind. She didn’t understand frustration or malice or jealousy. So let’s be that. Let’s be full of only good and give only love. That would make her happy, to know that even in death, she gave you all something. The courage and inspiration to fill yourselves with nothing but love and rid yourselves of bitterness in any way and form. That’s what she stood for. Dignity, strength and innocence. Thank you for the love and support everyone has shown us in the past couple of days. It’s given us hope and strength and we can’t thank you all enough.
Boney Kapoor’s kids with his first wife Mona, Anshula and Arjun Kapoor have been pillars of strength to their father and stepsisters Janhvi and Khushi in this crisis. It seems to be the healthy beginning of their relationships as Anshula blasted a few trolls on Instagram and defended her step-sisters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor, consequently, the Dhadak actress started following her on social media after a few hours.
