BOLLYWOOD: Janhvi Kapoor said that 2018 had been a mixed bag for her during a session at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
The young actor told that she had the “worst and best experience” of her life in the same breath.
Janhvi Kapoor attended the session with her father Boney Kapoor and in a conversation with Rumi Jaffery, Janhvi opened up about her life.
Janhvi’s mother Sridevi passed away earlier this year while she was still filming her debut film, Dhadak.
The 21 year old actor talked about how she has emerged as stronger in trying times and her personal growth has been ‘tremendous’. She said, “It’s harder to say anything… When I say ‘growth’, I mean personal growth, I don’t know about artistic. This year brought me both the worst and the best experience of my life. It’s a little strange… Our family is now united, so that is very big thing for me.”
Janhvi said she was happy that she made her parents proud. Sharing her struggles after her mother’s death she added, ““But whatever happened that too was very heavy (tragedy). We are still in shock, so we haven’t been able to process it properly. I’m really thankful for all the love that we have received and I got a chance to work, which is a big thing for me. I got a chance to make my parents proud, which is most important for me,”
