Janhvi Kapoor’s debut movie, ‘Dhadak’ has been released last week and it is garnering a lot of love from the audience. The movie is doing great in box office and have received fair amount of critical acclaim too. In this occasion of their success, Boney Kapoor spoke to one of the leading daily.
“I am blessed to have these four,” Boney Kapoor explained when he had a chat with the SpotboyE. He said, “They love each other a lot and I am glad that they have come together. It was due to happen anytime, it just happened when something unfortunate happened. They are all my blood and they had to come around.”
After Sridevi’s death, Boney gives all credits to his children for showing such maturity, “more to Arjun because he is the eldest. He flew in to Dubai to be with me. Anshula was in Mumbai with Janhvi and Khushi.”
Boney talked about Janhvi’s growth as a person and how she shot half of her movie ‘Dhadak’ after losing her mother. He says “It requires great courage in such conditions to play the part,” and he is receiving calls and messages to praise Janhvi’s performance. “Shabana Azmi told me ‘Has Janhvi done chupke se 25-30 films that you haven’t released? She looks so polished on screen’. Rekhaji was in tears, Javed Akhtar also called”.
Boney said about what Sridevi thought about Janhvi’s acting skills, “We were in the car and I asked her what she thinks of her. She said that I should answer that question first. I replied: ‘The good thing about her is she is not in awe of you.’”
