The star kids have to go through a lot! From being labelled as a product of nepotism to being compared to the charm and achievement of their parents, Star kids have to face it all.

Many times the public tries to find the glimpse of their favourite celeb in the child of that celeb and thus end up comparing them.

‘Something same happens with Jhanvi as well, Jhanvi Kapoor is the daughter of one of the most iconic Bollywood actresses ever, Sridevi.

Ever since Jhanvi made her debut with  Karan Johar’s Dhadak, comparisons to her late actress mother, Sridevi were obliged to happen.

On one side she had to cop with the nepotism debate and on another side, she had to cop-up with the expectations that the public had on her just because she is the daughter of a legendary star.

While spilling the beans over how she feels over the comparison, in an interview with a leading English Jhanvi was quoted as saying, “I think people need to accept that I’m a different person from my mother. There’s a section of society that has been able to do that with Dhadak, but there are people who couldn’t make that differentiation and they still look for Sridevi in me. Maybe after more of my work comes out, they’ll understand I’m a different type of actor and I’ll make different choices.”

When asked if she would like to reprise any of the iconic characters that her mother had done Janhvi said, “I don’t think that anyone can recreate that magic. No one can. Also, when something has been done so well, I don’t know if it’s right to try to attempt to do it again.”
