It was a pleasant delight to see Sridevi, an actor who has indulged in loud chirpy roles for majority of her career, at her subtle best when she returned to the silver screen after a long gap of 15 years in Gauri Shinde's slice of life drama English Vinglish in 2012.
She has maintained this duality quite well over the years and has even juggled well her reel and real lives. DNA reports that she shot English Vinglish during the summer break of her kids so that she could spend ample time with them. Now, ahead of her next release MOM, she has realised that her kids have taken after her in some way or the other.
While her elder daughter Jhanvi aspires to be an actor, and has reportedly signed a three film deal with filmmaker Karan Johar, her younger daughter Khushi is also an opinionated girl. Thus, she points out how both her daughters have taken after her onscreen image rather than the mother that she is.
In the same report, he reveals how her daughters have barely seen her films, except Shekhar Kapur's 1987 film Mr India and a few others, but have been influenced by their mother's profession.
Just like Saif Ali Khan expressed his contentions with his daughter Sara Ali Khan venturing into Hindi cinema, she is also skeptical of Jhanvi's aspiration to follow in her mother's footsteps. She says both she and her husband and film producer Boney Kapoor got worried when Jhanvi broke the news to them. But she adds that as parents, they would be happier to see her married but are willing to support her as she navigates through the world of glitz and glamour.
Talking about her younger one, she says that she was surprised by Khushi reacting to body shaming on the internet by posting a long paragraph criticising those indulging in the unhealthy practise.
