New Delhi : It’s so painful to loss someone closes to heart and none other than Janhvi Kapoor can understand this. She lost her mother Sridevi in a tragic case of accidental drowning in February, this year. Yet, she is a brave girl who impressed all with her fighting spirit, when she returned to work on her debut film Dhadak after a week of her mother's demise. 

At the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), held in Goa, India, Janhvi Kapoor spoke about how 2018 turned out for her. She mentions that she would never be able to match up to her mother Sridevi, veteran Bollywood actress. Nor, did she intend to do so.

Janhvi in the event, recited a a self-written poem dedicated to Sridevi. Boney Kapoor, her father was sitting next to her. When the actress recited the poem, Boney got emotional.

Talking about her year, Janhvi said, "It's harder to say anything. When I say 'growth', I mean personal growth, I don't know about artistic. This year brought me both the worst and the best experience of my life. It's a little strange.

"Our family is now united, so that is very big thing for me. But, whatever happened was too heavy. We are still in shock, so we haven't been able to process it properly. I'm really thankful for all the love that we have received and I got a chance to work, which is a big thing for more. I got a chance to make my parents proud, which is important for me," said Janhvi, who was attending the festival with her father Boney.

Coming to work, Janhvi will next be seen in Karan Johar's historic drama, Takht, which will release in 2020.

It seems that that the elder daughter of Bollywood superstar Sridevi and producer Boney Kapoor  is riding high on the success of her last release "Dhadak". We wish are good luck for all her upcoming projects.
