Janhvi Kapoor, who will next be seen in ‘Bawaal’, recently opened up about the ‘biggest war’ of her life, and it was none other than losing her mother Sridevi in 2018. The actress’ next film is set against the backdrop of World War II, and the film’s tagline is ‘every love story has its war.

During a recent interview with PinkVilla, Janhvi was asked about the ‘biggest war of her journey’. To which she replied, “I think definitely when I lost mom. I was shooting for Dhadak, and dealing with her loss was quite tough, and also somehow finding the will to keep working but also finding a way to deal with all of these things happening in our lives was tough. Figuring that out was definitely the biggest war in my life.”

Sridevi passed away just a couple of months before Janhvi’s debut in ‘Dhadak’.

Meanwhile, Janhvi, in a previous interview, had mentioned how she somehow felt that she “deserved” this, and there was a “weird sense of relief.” 

She told Barkha Dutt for Mojo Story, “When I lost mom, of course there was this huge tragedy, there was a hole in my heart.  But there was this horrible feeling of ‘something bad has happened’ to justify all the great things in my life and all the privilege and the things that I got easily which I heard my entire life. I thought, ‘Okay now something bad has happened. I deserve this. I deserve this horrible thing that has happened to me’. It was a weird sense of relief.”

On the actor’s fifth death anniversary, Janhvi remembered her late mother on social media and wrote, “I still look for you everywhere mumma, still do everything I do hoping I’m making you proud. Everywhere I go, and everything I do- it starts and ends with you❤️.”

Sridevi passed in February 2018 in Dubai, after she attended the wedding of Mohit Marwah. She was 54.
