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.
