According to media reports, Janhvi Kapoor has said that she will not be a part of a biopic made on Sridevi’s life. The ‘Good Luck Jerry’ actor, reportedly said that every time she remembers her late mother, she feels like crying. And therefore, doing her mother’s biopic will not be possible for her.
Apart from speaking about the possibility of acting in Sridevi’s biopic, Janhvi Kapoor also recalled an old incident that once occurred with her mother in Italy. Speaking of the incident, Janhvi said that once when the late actor was in Italy to shop for the interiors of their Chennai residence, she was attacked by a youth. The incident had shaken Sridevi after which she called Boney Kapoor and informed him about it. Upon finding out about the untoward episode, he immediately rushed to Italy to be with Sridevi.
