Discussing whether she took reference from her late mother’s work, for example, ChaalBaaz, Janhvi revealed to Hindustan Times, “There was no genuine reference point for Afza’s character, and I was attempting to be cognizant about not impersonating anybody. I don’t figure anybody on the planet can coordinate to the degree of work that my mom has put out. I would genuinely consistently struggle watching ChaalBaaz in light of the fact that they were mean to her in the film. As a child, I was exceptionally damaged each time I attempted to watch that film.”


Sridevi (Shree Amma Yanger Ayyapan, 13 August 1963 – 24 February 2018) was an Indian entertainer and maker, who worked in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada language films. Widely viewed as one of the best and most compelling entertainers throughout the entire existence of Indian film and viewed as the “Principal Female Superstar” of Indian cinema, she was the beneficiary of different honors, including a National Film Award, a Nandi Award, the Tamil Nadu State Film Award, the Kerala State Film Award, four Filmfare Awards, including a Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award and three Filmfare Awards South.

Sridevi’s personal life

Sridevi was constantly joined by her mom Rajeshwari or by her sister Srilatha to the film sets during shooting of her movies somewhere in 1972 and 1994. Sanjay Ramasamy is hitched to her sister Srilatha since 1989.

Her dad passed on in 1991, while she was filming for Lamhe and her mom kicked the bucket in 1996, because of the complexities experienced an operation that she went through in 1995 on a cerebrum tumor at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. The neurosurgeon worked on the side of her mind annihilating her imperative tissues of vision and ongoing memory. This was generally revealed in US media around then which at that point prompted a fruitful court fight and provoked then President Bill Clinton’s proposition of a program for clinics to unveil their clinical misbehavior and errors.

Sridevi was amazingly cautious about her security and infrequently gave meets or examined her private life in them. During the 1980s, she was rumoured to have hitched entertainer Mithun Chakraborty, whom she met on the arrangements of Jaag Utha Insan (1984). In 1996, she wedded Boney Kapoor. The couple had two little girls, Janhvi (1997), who is herself an entertainer, and Khushi (2000).

Notwithstanding being known for her depictions of a solid, energetic and abundant lady on-screen, Sridevi was a very contemplative and saved individual off-screen. CNN-IBN journalist Rajeev Masand says, “I have never known any individual who was so timid, so tranquil off-screen, who just changed into a power of nature when the cameras went ahead. She was a questioner’s bad dream, yet the film buff’s dream”. Commenting on her saved nature, Firstpost says, “Behind the impressive champion with shimmering, otherworldly eyes and a staggering face, was an intrinsically modest lady, regularly mixed up as presumptuous. In all actuality she was modest. Having started to act when she was only 4, she didn’t finish formal schooling or get a very remarkable opportunity to associate with children of her own age. Thus, she built up a solid aversion for groups and commotion.”
