Ahead of her 21st birthday Janhvi pens a poignant eulogy for mom Sridevi

The sudden demise of one of the most phenomenal actresses of Bollywood, Sridevi, has left everyone in utter shock. While fans & the industry are still trying to come to terms with it, of course for her family – husband Boney Kapoor & daughters Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor, it would be tough enough to get over from the harsh fact that their beloved person is no more with them.

While Boney Kapoor & Kapoor with Marwah & Ayyappan family have already penned a letter after the cremation of Sridevi, Janhvi & Khushi have been in trauma ever since the news of their mother’s death. However, now Janhvi has broken the silence and she too expressed her deep grief, the ‘gnawing hollowness’ in a poignant eulogy that she shared on a photo sharing portal ahead of her 21st birthday on March 7.

Sridevi passed away exactly a week ago on February 24 due to accidental drowning in Dubai, where she was there to attend her nephew Mohit Marwah’s wedding with entire Kapoor family. But sadly, Janhvi, who was busy shooting for her debut Bollywood film DHADAK, gave a miss to the wedding and she wasn’t with her mother in her last moments.

Here’s what Janhvi posted on photo sharing portal:

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.
