Janhvi Kapoor's 21st Birthday, Sonam Kapoor Lauds Cousin For Her Strength

Late legend Sridevi's elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor has turned 21 today and her closed ones couldn't stop themselves from showering the young starlet with birthday wishes on social media. Despite being the most affected by her mother's demise, her omnipresent strength is applaudable.

Lauding her cousin for being strong through the dreadful situation, Sonam Kapoor posted an adorable birthday message for Janhvi Kapoor on Instagram. She wrote, "To one of the strongest girls I know, who became a woman today. Happy birthday jannu."

Ace designer Manish Malhotra also posted a picture of himself with Janhvi and Sridevi from the sets of 'Dhadak' to wish the pretty lady on her birthday. He wrote, "Happy Birthday my dearest Janhvi Kapoor. May God Bless you With Happiness Love Peace and Just Everything."

While the Kapoor family is still emotionally unstable from the recent tragedy, her Janhvi's birthday celebrations won't be anything bashful. Reportedly, her family is hosting a little dinner at home for the closed friends and relatives to celebrate her birthday.

Janhvi has written a heart-wrenching note remembering her mother a few days back which clearly indicated that the acting debutante is yet to get over the grave loss of her mother. Her respect and adoration for Sridevi were dripping from her soul-stirring words.


On my birthday, the only thing I ask of all of you is that you love your parents. Cherish them and devote yourself to making them feel that love. They have made you. And I ask that you remember my mother fondly, pray for her soul to rest in peace. Let the love and adulation you’ll showered on her continue and please know that the biggest part of my mother was the love she shared with papa. And their love is immortal because there was nothing like it in the whole world. Nothing as joyful and pure and no two people as devoted to one another as they were. Please respect that because it hurts to think anyone would ever try to tarnish it. Preserving the sanctity of what they had would mean the world not only to my mother but also to a man who’s entire being revolved around her, and her two children who are all that remains of their love. Me and Khushi have lost our mother but papa has lost his “Jaan”. She was so much more than just an actor or a mother or a wife. She was the ultimate and the best in all these roles. It mattered a great deal to her to give love and to get love. For people to be good and gracious and kind. She didn’t understand frustration or malice or jealousy. So let’s be that. Let’s be full of only good and give only love. That would make her happy, to know that even in death, she gave you all something. The courage and inspiration to fill yourselves with nothing but love and rid yourselves of bitterness in any way and form. That’s what she stood for. Dignity, strength and innocence. Thank you for the love and support everyone has shown us in the past couple of days. It’s given us hope and strength and we can’t thank you all enough.

The entire Kapoor family, including her step-siblings Arjun and Anshula Kapoor, have stood by her in the times of need and provided a steady support system to the broken soul. Anshula, in fact, is scheduled to attend Janhvi's birthday get together on Tuesday evening.

Janhvi has been denoted as her 'most precious thing' by Sridevi in the past. The late actress has taken a long break from the acting career for catering each need for her daughter, who was broken upon her mother's untimely demise.

Sridevi always wished to watch her daughter's debut film 'Dhadak' opposite Ishaan Khatter, a wish which remained unfulfilled. Helmed by Shashank Khaitan, the love saga is slated to release on July 20, 2018. We wish Janhvi Kapoor, a very Happy and peaceful Birthday!
