"I hope we make you proud Mumma"
On February 24, 2018, Sridevi, who was often addressed as Bollywood’s ‘first female superstar’, died at the age of 54.
On her fourth death anniversary on February 24, 2022, Sridevi’s daughters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor remembered their mother on social media.
Janhvi shared an old picture of Sridevi and captioned it:
“I’ve still lived more years with you in my life than without.
“But I hate that another year has been added to a life without you.
“I hope we make you proud Mumma because that’s the only thing that keeps us going. Love you forever.”
Janhvi and Khushi’s step-sister Anshula Kapoor reacted to the post with red heart emojis.
Shanaya Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor, Sunita Kapoor and Athiya Shetty dropped heart emojis in the comments section.
One fan commented: “Stay strong Janhvi.”
Another added: “You are making her proud.”
While a third commented: “She is looking after you from above and you are surely making her proud.”
Janhvi’s younger sister Khushi Kapoor also shared a childhood photo with Sridevi on her Instagram Story.
Sridevi died of accidental drowning in February 2018 at the age of 54.
Janhvi and Khushi are Sridevi’s daughters with Boney Kapoor.
Boney has spoken fondly of Sridevi on several occasions since her death.
Speaking on his wife’s death anniversary in 2021, Boney said: “I am not looking for closure.
“I want her to be around me all the time. She is there in my thoughts and will remain in my thoughts all the time.
“There is not a single moment of the day where she is not with me.
“She may not be here physically, but she’s there in my mind all the time and that keeps me going.”
Sridevi was known for her iconic roles in Hindi movies like Chandni, Lamhe, Mr India, Chaalbaaz, Nagina, Sadma and English Vinglish, among many more.
The Padma Shri awardee had also made a mark with her extraordinary performances in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada films.
Her last film was Mom, for which she was honoured with the Best Actress National Award.
Janhvi Kapoor made her Bollywood debut with Dhadak in 2018 and has starred in several projects since then.
Khushi studied in New York and aspires to be an actress like her sister.
She will reportedly star in the Hindi adaptation of The Archies comics, directed and produced by Zoya Akhtar.
