The daughter of Boney Kapoor and the late actress Sridevi, Janhvi Kapoor has stepped into Bollywood with her debut film ‘Dhadak’. The film also stars Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishaan Khatter. It is a Hindi remake of Marathi Blockbuster ‘Sairat’. Although the late actress was very excited for her daughter’s debut, she wanted her to pursue a different career.

Janhvi has revealed which profession Sridevi wanted her to pursue in an interview with a leading daily. Talking about the first time she spoke of her desire about being an actress, she said, “There were a lot of sounds. There was a lot of ‘Aiyyo!’, but I think she knew that the bug had bitten this poor girl.”

When she was asked which other career Sridevi wanted Janhvi to pursue, the daughter said, “When I was a kid, she really wanted me to become a doctor. I don’t know why, and I was like, ‘I am sorry mom, but I don’t have the intellect to become a doctor.”

On Boney Kapoor’s reaction to her decision, she said, “He was very chilled out. He is like a typical Kapoor. He was very supportive. He eased mom into the idea of it. He was excited that I chose to prove myself or do something with my life. Mom was like, ‘I have worked this hard because I wanted my children to have it easy so that they have a relaxed life.’ But I think I wanted a fulfilling one. That meant much more to me. I don’t think I would have been a satisfied person had I just lived off whatever my parents gave me,”.

Well, we hope she achieves success just like her mom!
