Janhvi is not trying to be like her mom Sridevi, Boney Kapoor

Janhvi Kapoor is often compared with her mother and veteran actor Sridevi but the comparison didn’t go well with Janhvi’s father Boney Kapoor. Boney said that Janhvi is not aping her mom and she has her own individuality.

Boney Kapoor said, "Janhvi has her own individuality. Fortunately, she is not trying to be (like) her mom. She is trying to be herself which is good. She (Sridevi) has been an iconic figure so more so being her daughter why should Janhvi ape her," reports news agency PTI. 

Janhvi is current busy shooting for her debut film, ‘Dhadak’, a Hindi remake of Marathi blockbuster ‘Sairat’. Lately, Farah Khan has been roped in to choreograph the hit song ‘Jhingaat’ from the orginal film which was picturised on Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar.

The ace choreographer turned filmmaker shared a picture on her Instagram account with Janhvi and Ishaan Khattar and captioned: "Keeping it under wraps!! Doing JHINGAAT all night with #gennext @ishaan95 @jahnvii.kapoor."

Janhvi's dad is very satisfied with ‘Dhadak’ progress. "I was in Udaipur for a day and it's going pretty well. She was filming a song and it looked fantastic. I have also seen the stills and pictures. They look good," he said.

During a media interaction, when Boney Kapoor was questioned about how Janhvi is prepping for her debut venture, he replied, "If she has to make a mark she should be her own individual self and do things that create your own identity. She is a sensible and intelligent girl. She is hardworking, sincere towards her work and she will create a niche for herself”.

‘Dhadak’ directed by Shashank Khaitan is scheduled to hit theatres on July 20, 2018.
