The Hush Post: As Sridevi’s family prepares to immerse her mortal remains in the sea near Rameswaram, her daughter Janhvi Kapoor’s 21sth birthday falls today and the first without her mom. She shared her thoughts on her 21st birthday on social media. Jahnvi wrote a heart wrenching letter to her fans. Love Your Parents is what Janhvi Kapoor said today when she turned 21. With her mother Sridevi not by her side she shared her emotions for her mother’s fans as well.
Penning a note on her social media handle Instagram, Jhanvi stated: “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. Let the love and adulation you all showered on her continue and please know that the biggest part of my mother was the love she shared with papa. And 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. Me and Khushi have lost our mother but papa has lost his “Jaan”. She was so much more than just an actor or a mother or a wife. She was the ultimate and the best in all these roles. It mattered a great deal to her to give love and to get love. For people to be good and gracious and kind. 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.
Thank you for the love and support everyone has shown us in the past couple of days. It’s given us hope and strength and we can’t thank you all enough.”
Boney Kapoor also took to social media to talk about his wife Sridevi. “She was our life, our strength and the reason we always smiled. We love her beyond measure,” he says. The loss of a friend, wife and a mother of two young daughters was a loss inexplicable in words. “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my family, friends, colleagues, well-wishers and all of you countless fans of my Sridevi who have stood by us like rocks.”
Jhanvi’s post has already received an overwhelming number of comments and likes. Her debut film opposite Ishaan Khatter is scheduled to release on 6 July 2018.
