Janhvi is the elder daughter of actor Sridevi and producer Boney Kapoor while Ishaan is the son of Neelima Azim and Rajeev Khattar and half-brother of actor Shahid Kapoor.

Janhvi looks like a mirror image of Sridevi in the pictures. The veteran actor had said about Janhvi’s debut recently, “Children have their own mind. When it comes to her work, I don’t want to advise. She must cultivate her craft all by herself, make her own choices and chart her own path.”

Ishaan has already made his film debut with Iranian director Majid Majidi’s film, Beyond The Clouds. It was screened at the BFI Film Festival recently.
