  • Janhvi will be debuting in upcoming Bollywood movie “Dhadak”
  • Sridevi had two daughters – Jahnvi and Khushi Kapoor

A week after her mother and veteran actress Sridevi’s sudden demise, her elder daughter Jahnvi Kapoor says there’s a “gnawing hollowness” within her. She has penned an emotional note urging people to cherish their parents.

Jahnvi, who is one of the two daughters Sridevi had with film producer Boney Kapoor, will turn 21 on March 7 and she is also gearing up for the release of her maiden Bollywood outing “Dhadak.”


After a week of grappling with the shocking news of her mother’s demise due to accidental drowning in a hotel bathtub in Dubai, Jahnvi has penned her sentiments in a note posted on her official Instagram page.


Jahnvi Kapoor wrote heart-touching words in honour of her mother, Sridevi.

It reads: “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.”

Jahnvi, who has sibling Khushi, said her parents shared immense love and there shouldn’t be any attempts to “tarnish” that.

“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 whose entire being revolved around her, and her two children who are all that remains of their love,” she said, adding that Boney has lost his “jaan”.

Of her mother, Jahnvi said: “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.”


Sridevi was a big influence in her daughters’ life.

In an accompanying image, Jahnvi shared a heartfelt note on her emotions of losing her “best friend” and “reason for everything”.

“Nothing anyone said mattered, no problem was big enough and no day could ever be dull because I had you… And I didn’t have to rely on anyone or anything because the only person I ever needed was you,” she wrote.

As Jahnvi steps into films with Shashank Khaitan-directed “Dhadak” — releasing in July — she says she is only going to work towards making her mother “proud.”

“Every morning, all that I would do was (wake up) with the hope that one day you’d be as proud of me as I was of you. But I promise I’ll wake up every day with the same thought. Because you’re here and I can feel you.”

When Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan became bankrupt in the late 1990s, Dhirubhai Ambani stepped forward to give him financial assistance. In his speech, Bachchan remembered that Dhirubhai had sent Anil Ambani to offer him financial assistance during the crisis, which he had respectfully declined. Lenders began knocking on his door, losses mounted, and his bank account dwindled to nothing. He said, "Dhirubhai's money might have gotten me out of the problem quickly. However, I respectfully declined his offer and gradually began to find work again, which let me pay off my debt."

Irrespective of the age of your child, it is vital for parents to offer that extra support and assistance following an unsettling event.

In comparison to adults, children are prone to getting traumatized by troubling events easily, and this makes it important for parents to help their children when the times are tough. It could be a brutal accident, an unprecedented pandemic, a violent crime, or other disasters but with the right parental support, children have a higher chance of coming out stronger from an awful situation.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

Every child responds differently to disturbing events:
What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
