After the demise of Bollywood's veteran actress Sridevi, daughter Janhvi Kapoor's birthday has come at a sombre moment. However, it's always a heartwarming thing to see friends, family, and loved ones come together to wish you the best, especially at a time of grief and immense sadness.
On the occasion of Janhvi's 21st birthday today, Sonam Kapoor posted a beautiful wish on her Instagram account, and it's incredibly soul-stirring.
Manish Malhotra also posted an adorable picture of himself with Sridevi and Janhvi, and had the most heartening birthday message for the birthday girl.
As the news of Sridevi's death hit the world, prayers poured in from friends, and peers from the industry, offering condolences to Boney Kapoor and daughters Khushi and Janhvi Kapoor, wishing them strength during this difficult time.
Janhvi Kapoor also took to Instagram, on the occassion of her birthday, to pen down a heartfelt message to everyone who has been kind and compassionate towards the Kapoor family during the ordeal they went through.
"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", she wrote.
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.
Here's wishing Janhvi Kapoor a birthday full of love, and good wishes! While we cannot even begin to imagine what she must be going through, we wish her strength and courage to live her life just as her mother would have wanted her to - to the fullest!
