Janhvi Kapoor who made her debut in Bollywood just a couple of years ago with Dhadak has now expressed an interest in recreating old dance numbers. In a heartfelt post about her mom Srivdevi's love for dancing Jahnvi Kapoor has revealed that she wants to perform on some of those songs. Kapoor specifically mentioned songs from Mr. India, and Chandini.
In an interview to Filmfare Kapoor said, "I don’t know, all her songs from Chandni and Kaate Nahi Kat Te from Mr India. It wasn’t a dance number, but she was so expressive with her body, there was no dance movement as such, but she still caught the beat and the rhythm and those latkas and jhatkas were all so perfect. Hawa Hawai was such a fun song. Apparently, the part where she’s having a ball of a time with the fruits and topi was absolutely done improv.”
She added saying, "Mom always thought that in dance it’s not all about the steps, they are the last thing that you need to be thinking about. The most important thing, that she said one must do while dancing is to enjoy it thoroughly and have fun."
Jahnvi also recalled the time when she was blown away by Srivdevi's dancing skills. She said, “I fondly remember one particular award function as a kid where I saw mom rehearse after a really long time. I still remember that she was just marking the steps in the hall at home instead of rehearsing. When I saw her on stage, I was surprised to see her performing so beautifully. This was nothing that I saw at home. She’d blown everyone away with that performance.”
Actress Srivdevi passed away in 2018 in a Dubai hotel.
