But it left her deeply in pain as the memories were fresh, and her team was also making sure that she didn't get reminded of her mother, but the tribute wasn't informed to them. She was quoted as saying:

"I went on a dance show and it was right after the incident. I was promoting Dhadak and everything was very fresh. My team was taking care that I don’t get reminded of my mother, but this show didn’t tell us that they were going to give a tribute to mom. So they played an audio-visual of all my mother’s songs with an emotional voiceover, and these kids started dancing to pay homage."

"It was beautiful, but I wasn’t ready. I couldn’t breathe anymore. I started howling and crying. I ran off the stage and went to my van. Had a proper panic attack.

Janhvi also recalled how some people judged her after her mother's death. She recalled people calling her snooty for not talking about Sridevi in her interviews. When she was trying to be happy without giving second thoughts people claimed that she wasn't affected.
