Sridevi’s older daughter Janhvi Kapoor recently celebrated her 21st birthday amidst gloomy environment since her birthday had fallen just days after her mother’s untimely death.
Jahnvi had cut the birthday cake at an old-age home with her photo, sitting next to few cakes, going viral. Her cousin and actor Sonam Kapoor had congratulated her for becoming ‘woman.’
Sonam recently posted a photo of Janhvi’s birthday celebrations where all the sisters including Rhea Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor can be seen posing for the camera. In the photo, some including Sonam and Janhvi are seen smiling.
The sisters faced incessant trolling on Instagram as users criticised them for holding a celebration just days after Sridevi’s demise. One user wrote, “I would surely not celebrate my birthday after 1 week of my mom’s death. That too with a cake.” Another user Sujata Sing asked, “Last 20 yrs Janhvi is cutting her birthday cake. Can’t she leave it for this year or 13 days later she can give big bash party …can’t believe (sic).”
User Husna wrote, “This is ridiculous….U forget ur mom just in 10 DaYs….n celebrating ur birthday….Shame on u janhvi (sic).” Another user asked Sonam, “For god sake, millions are still mourning and It’s harsh, would Sonam be sharing her happy wedding photos when Anil is gone? Disgusted to see this, at least keep your strong happy brainy girly photos private. This isn’t inspiring, forgotten when she’s gone, reality of life and what a great memoir from her family! Sonam, we got to know you better with this photo and hate you for not being sensitive as anyone would, you’re insanely different! (sic).” User Chandrasekhar wrote, “Insensitive..don think you guys are mourning the loss.”
However, there were many who came to Kapoor sisters’ support. One user wrote, “Hey guys they r also sensitive people like us… It’s just they r trying to feel janhvi kapoor happy… More than us she is in pain… If today her mother had been alive she also wanted the same na… So stop commenting… Where ever sridevi mam is she will be happy after seeing this that her daughter is Atleast trying to be happy (sic).” User Vinita wrote, “I don’t know why some people are so insensitive.. Why can’t anyone be happy on her birthday ? Sridevi’s demise is a huge loss but crying on that will hurt her soul.. Sridevi will be very happy seeing her daughters happy.. Strong kapoor girls (sic).”
Sridevi had died in Dubai with the reason of her death being termed as accidental drowning. Janhvi, who is making her debut with Dhadak was recently abused by a user on Instagram prompting her step-sister, Anshula Kapoor to shut up the troll.
