Janhvi’s debut film Dhadak is currently successfully running in the cinemas. Dhadak, an official adaptation of the much-loved 2016 Marathi film Sairat, hit the screens on July 20.
The 21-year-old actor has now opened up about losing her mom Sridevi and it’s heartbreaking, to say the least.
Janhvi recently talked about her loss and shooting for Dhadak post her mother’s demise in an interview with Filmfare. She has been quoted as saying, “No. I haven’t got around the acceptance stage yet. It’s just that there hasn’t been time or I haven’t allowed myself the time to come to terms with everything. There’s a stage of denial that we’re all going through.”
Janhvi further added, “I wanted to shoot the next day (after the cremation). But the shoot got cancelled. I was like, No, I must go back, I need to be on the set.”
The 21-year-old also shared that she thought she’ll lose her mind if she didn’t resume work. “And I would have, promise you, if I didn’t have Dhadak. If I didn’t have the opportunity to act or be in front of the camera, there would have been no purpose in life to keep me going.”
