What was Sridevi's advice to Janhvi?
Dhadak's producer Karan Johar spoke to Janhvi and asked what the late actor said to her daughter when she saw 25 minutes of the film's footage
When Sridevi, who had an impeccable dressing and style sense, saw bits of her daughter Janhvi's yet-to-release Bollywood debut Dhadak before she passed away, she was happy, but gave her some make-up advice. Filmmaker Karan Johar, who has produced Dhadak, spoke to Janhvi and asked what the late actor said to her daughter when she saw 25 minutes of the film footage.
Janhvi said, "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."
The actor, who will make her Hindi film debut with Ishaan Khatter in Dhadak, was also asked to name a contemporary lead actor that she finds attractive on screen. She named Rajkummar Rao, Dhanush, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
"They're so good! I'm attracted to someone who can immerse me in the film, and all these actors are so expressive. I'm not sure if I should say this, but after watching Bareilly Ki Barfi, I really wanted Rajkummar Rao to notice me, so I commented on all his photos. He's the only person I've asked for a photo with."
And which female actor does she admire the most? "Alia (Bhatt)... She is in top form."
