Actor Janhvi Kapoor ‘s act of kindness on mother Sridevi’s birthday has impressed her fans and left Twitter applauding. The Dhadak actor was on one of her gym outings and even as cameras clicked around her, she was being followed by a street child.

The video shows Janhvi moving towards her car as a kid repeatedly asks her to either buy a magazine from him or give him some money. As she gets seated in the car, she looks for her purse. Unable to find the money, she borrows some from her driver, hands it over to the kid and waves him goodbye.
