As Bollywood actors celebrated Mothers’ Day on Sunday posting pictures with their moms, Janhvi Kapoor, too, joined the bandwagon with a touching post – she shared a throwback picture from her childhood featuring late actor Sridevi and herself.
Janhvi, who will make her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Dhadak opposite Ishaan Khatter, shared the photo on Instagram.
Sridevi, who died earlier this year in Dubai hotel due to drowning, will receive a special salute for her contribution to cinema on May 16 at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival 2018. It will be part of an event, Titan Reginald F. Lewis Film Honours (a celebration of diversity and excellence in cinema), at Le Majestic Beach, Cannes Film Festival 2018.
The Cannes tribute follows this year’s National Film Awards honour for Sridevi. She posthumously won the Best Actress award for her role as an avenging mother in the Hindi film, Mom (2017).
