Sridevi Took Inspiration From A Movie Character To Name Her Daughter 'Janhvi'; Read Here

Late actor Sridevi and Boney Kapoor have two daughters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor. Interestingly, Sridevi got inspired by a movie character to name Janhvi.


Janhvi Kapoor entered Bollywood in 2018 with the movie Dhadak. The actor stole the limelight with her performance in the movie and since then she has managed to make headlines every now and then. Being late actor Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter, she carried a lot of expectations on her back as she was a star kid.

But apart from her reputation of star kid, there is something more interesting about Janhvi and that’s her name. Interestingly, Sridevi kept her name getting inspired from a movie character.

Reportedly, Sridevi was inspired to name her child 'Janhvi' after Urmila Matondkar's character in 1997 film Judaai. The movie was produced by Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor. Not only Janhvi but Sridevi’s second daughter Khushi Kapoor’s name is also an inspiration from a movie character. She was reportedly inspired Sonali Bendre's character's name in 2000 film Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai and so kept her daughter’s name ‘Khushi’. This film was also produced by Boney Kapoor.
