What profession did Sridevi want her daughter to take?

The legendary actress Sridevi was an icon of Bollywood when it came to acting and dancing. She had established herself as one of the greatest actresses of Bollywood. So, when her daughter Janhvi Kapoor decided to become an actress, it was the next logical step in the whole golden genes process. People expected the daughter of such a star, with a glamour quotient of her own, to carry forward her mother’s legacy. However, that is not what Sridevi herself wanted Janhvi to do!

Yes, in a recent interview, Janhvi opened up about what her mother wanted her to do. Sridevi originally wanted her to become a doctor. But Janhvi clearly stated her desire to become an actress. She said that she does not have the intellect to become a doctor. Janhvi said that when she told Sridevi about her acting dream, there were a lot of sounds from her mother, like, Aiyyo, this poor girl, and so on. However, the bug had bitten her!

Janhvi will be making her Bollywood debut opposite Shahid Kapoor’s brother, Ishaan Khatter, in the movie Dhadak. The movie, which is a Hindi remake of the hit Marathi film Sairat, is directed by Shashank Khaitan. The film will hit the screens on 20th July 2018.
