Janhvi Kapoor made her big Bollywood debut with Dhadak on Friday and it was a special day for her as it would be for any actor. While she had the support of her entire family with her, she still missed her late mother, actor Sridevi.

However, to pay tribute to her mother, Janhvi got a special note attached to the film and it is sure to make everyone emotional. Before the film begins, a beautiful picture of Sridevi is shown from her movie, English Vinglish and a few sweet words from Janhvi. “I love you mom. This is and always was, for you...-Janhvi,” it reads.

The picture included with the message was also attached with the family’s note to the press and fans after Sridevi’s death in February, to thank them for their love and respect for the actor.

Janhvi had earlier paid a tribute to her mom, Sridevi on Instagram, in which she wrote, “There’s a gnawing hollowness in my chest that I know I’ll have to learn how to live with. Even with all the emptiness, I still feel your love… Every time I close my eyes, I only have good things to remember. ‘You were too good, too pure, too full of love. That’s why he took you back. But at least we had you.”

She added, “My friends always said I’m perpetually happy, and now I realise it was because of you. ‘I didn’t have to rely on anyone or anything because the only person I ever needed was you. You are part of my soul. My best friend. My reason for everything. ‘The imprint you left on us is so strong, it might nust be enough to keep us going, but never enough to be fully whole.”

Dhadak, directed by Shashank Khaitan also marks the Bollywood debut of Ishaan Khatter. The film opened to mixed reviews.
