After this statement, when the whole Kapoor Khandaan came on stage for a photo-op, Janhvi Kapoor’s sister and Late Sridevi’s younger daughter Khushi Kapoor got emotional while remembering her mother. Both sisters hugged each other and were seen shedding tears on stage.
The 21-year-old was accompanied by her father, producer Boney Kapoor, who has been her constant support after the sudden demise of Sridevi earlier this year in Dubai.
“Papa did not give me any acting tips, but love, encouragement and a lot of support. So I think that is more than enough,” she said.
Before the trailer launch, her brother Arjun Kapoor — Boney’s son with the late Mona Kapoor — also shared words of encouragement for Janhvi.
The trailer launch of “Dhadak” was attended by the film’s producer Karan Johar, director Shashank Khaitan and lead actor Ishaan Khatter, who too is making his Bollywood debut with the project.

“Dhadak” is releasing on July 20.
