Sridevi’s daughter, Janhvi Kapoor turned 21 on Tuesday with Bollywood celebrities sending her birthday wishes. Her birthday assumes significance as this has come barely a few days after the young actor lost her mother.
Janhvi was not even present in Dubai when the legendary actor passed away following an incident of accidental drowning. Sridevi’s death had sent shockwaves across the globe. The Academy Awards had paid rich tributes to her during this year’s Oscars ceremony.
However, it was Sonam Kapoor’s birthday wish for her cousin that has stood out. The big sister’s birthday greetings for Janhvi on Instagram read, “To one of the strongest girls I know, who became a woman today. Happy birthday jannu.”
Janhvi quickly replied to her post by saying, ‘Love uuuuu (sic)’
The Kapoor family has come very close in the aftermath of Sridevi’s tragic death. On Monday, Janhvi’s half-sister, Anshula Kapoor, had slammed a troll on social media after she used abusive language for Sridevi’s daughters.
She had written, “Hi, I’m requesting you to refrain from using abusive language especially towards my sisters, I do not appreciate it and have therefore deleted your comments. While I am grateful for your passion and love for bhai and me, just a small correction – I was never working outside India. Let’s please spread joy and good vibes. Thank you for the love.”
Meanwhile, Janhvi celebrated her 21st birthday by a cutting a cake in a simple ceremony. This, according to sources close to her, was to respect her mother’s wish. A fan page of the actor has posted few photos and a video of Janhvi celebrating her birthday in an old age home. In one photo, she’s seen sitting next to cakes.
