‘Used to feel I had an unfair advantage’

‘Used to feel I had an unfair advantage’

Sridevi was one of the greatest actors of Indian cinema and will always be, and was also the first female superstar of the country. Her daughter Janhvi Kapoor made her Bollywood debut with Dhadak in 2018 and was last seen in Bawaal. At the recently held AajTak Agenda, she addressed the constant comparisons and what she feels about it.

The actress said, “I don’t think anybody can do what she did, anybody is as versatile as she is.. the level at which she would operate, I don’t think anybody can cope with that.. leave me alone! But even in today’s generation, the actresses get compared to her dance moves, every step, every performance… my sister and I, would initially stress a lot, and would get very nervous, overworked with the baggage but then I began to understand I’m being compared to mumma) so that’s the standard.”

She added, “When I started working for my first film, I was so concious that I wanted to be completely detached from her because people anyway used to think that I got my first film because I am Sridevi Kapoor’s daughter . I don’t know what different trip I went on to that I will not take any help from my mother, I will act completely different from my mom’s style of acting, used to tell her not to come on sets. I used to feel I had an unfair advantage, a trump card. But now I feel I was foolish that time. Main hoon unki beti , is sacchai se main bhag nahi sakti. Now that she is not here , this is my biggest regret.”
