Boney Kapoor and late Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Dhadak. The film which is a remake of Marathi film Sairat is directed by Shashank Khaitan and stars Ishan Khatter as its leading man. While the film is scheduled to release in July, the actress has already made her magazine cover debut. Janhvi graced the June issue of Vogue India and she looked every bit gorgeous.

In an interview with Karan for the magazine, Janhvi also revealed the reason why her mother Sridevi didn’t want her to become an actor.

Janhvi said,

She never wanted me to be an actress. She was more relaxed about Khushi getting into films. She thought I was naïve, that I wasn’t thick-skinned enough. She wanted us to live a more relaxed life. She loved what she did but you know it was intense.

Janhvi also shared what Sridevi had told her before dropping her off at the acting school in Los Angeles.

Phool ko kichad mein chhod kar chali ja rahi hu main!” (“I’m leaving my little flower in the muck”). In the wild, wild west. I think it’s cool to be naïve. It takes a certain amount of courage to not be pessimistic. I’d like to believe there is good in everyone.

Here’s wishing good luck to Janhvi for Dhadak. We are sure she’ll floor the audience with her acting chops.
