n pics: ‘Kapoor and daughters’ are setting family goals on Janhvi Kapoor’s 21st birthday – Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor turned 21 on Wednesday. While her mother Sridevi’s sudden and untimely demise left the country in demise just a week ago, the young girl has showed immense courage in dealing with the irreplaceable loss.
Amidst the tough time, Janhvi spent her birthday by having a very quiet and private dinner at the Kapoor residence with her family members by her side. Her half-sister Anshula Kapoor hosted a mini family gathering, which was attended by Janhvi’s father Boney Kapoor, her younger sister Khushi Kapoor and cousins Sonam, Rhea and Shanaya Kapoor. Also joining them were Jahaan (Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep’s son) and filmmaker Rajkumar Santoshi’s daughter Tanisha. We believe Arjun Kapoor skipped the dinner as he is currently filming Namastey England alongside Parineeti Chopra in Amritsar.
Sonam posted a beautiful picture on Instagram where the Kapoor girls are seen sharing a hearty laughter with delectable cakes and candles set on the table. She captioned the picture as “#kapooranddaughters”.
Meanwhile, earlier in the day, Janhvi paid a visit to an old age home just like her mother Sridevi did in the past. Several videos and photos went viral on social media yesterday with Janhvi winning everyone’s hearts with her calm demure and sweet gestures.

Janhvi lost her mother Sridevi just a few days before her 21st birthday. Sridevi breather her last on February 24 by accidental drowning in the bathtub of the hotel room she was staying in Dubai.
On Saturday, Janhvi posted a heartfelt tribute to Sridevi in which she wrote: “Even with all this emptiness, I still feel your love. I feel you protecting me from sadness and pain.” Janhvi also appealed to her fans and Instagram followers to “love your parents. Cherish them and devote yourself to making them feel that love.”

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.
Janhvi is all set to make her Bollywood debut in Karan Johar’s Dhadak alongisde Ishaan Khatter. Dhadak is directed by Shashank Khaitan and is slated to release on July 6.
