Janhvi Kapoor’S Heart-Wrenching Confession: Panic Attack After Sridevi Tribute

Janhvi Kapoor Recalls Harrowing Panic Attack Triggered by Sridevi Tribute Video

Emotional Trauma and Panic Response

Janhvi Kapoor, the 27-year-old actress and daughter of the late Bollywood icon Sridevi, recently opened up about a distressing panic attack she experienced during a television dance performance while promoting her film “Dhadak.”

The incident occurred shortly after the untimely demise of her mother, leaving Janhvi emotionally vulnerable and grappling with the intense grief.

Tribute Video and Overwhelming Emotions

During the dance show, a tribute video showcasing Sridevi’s iconic performances was aired. The emotional content and poignant voiceover proved to be too much for Janhvi.

She recounted, “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.”

Public Misinterpretation and Media Scrutiny

Unfortunately, the media coverage of the incident portrayed a different narrative. Footage was edited to remove the emotional outburst, replaced with a clip of Janhvi clapping and smiling. This led to public criticism and accusations of insensitivity.

Janhvi expressed her frustration, “People were like, ‘Does she really not give a f*?’ But what happened was very different.”

Sridevi’s Influence and Eternal Legacy

Sridevi, known for her extraordinary acting talent and enigmatic presence, passed away due to accidental drowning on February 24, 2018. Her death sent shockwaves through the Indian film industry and left a profound void in Janhvi’s life.

Professional Updates

On the professional front, Janhvi is gearing up for the release of her upcoming film “Mr & Mrs Mahi” alongside Rajkummar Rao. The sports drama is scheduled to hit theaters on May 31, 2024.
