Janvi stated, "I saw 'Sairat' with mom at home and I remember telling her 'I wish that this was my first film and I could do something like it.' Me and mom had this big discussion how even she wanted a role like this for me and then you (Karan) called and it happened." After watching the trailer, we can definitely say that Janhvi will take her mother’s legacy forward on the silver screen. (Also Read: Janhvi Kapoor Reveals Her Mom Sridevi's Reaction After Watching 25 Min Of Her Debut Film, 'Dhadak')

Janhvi also revealed her mother, Sridevi’s reaction after watching 25 minutes of her film, “She was very technical about it. The first thing she told me was the things I needed to improve — she felt the mascara was smudged and it really bothered her. The second half has to be different, she told me… ‘You can’t wear anything on your face.’ That’s all she told me, but she was happy.”
