February 24 was indeed one of the darkest day in the history of Indian cinema. Indian cinema lost its first female superstar, Sridevi, and we still are not able to grapple with the loss. This tragic news has sent shockwaves in the nation as Sri’s fans are grieving over the loss. The Sadma actress is survived by husband Boney Kapoor and two daughters Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor. After a prayer meet and funeral in Mumbai, the family flew down to Rameshwaram to immerse the late actress’s ashes. Yesterday, Janhvi ringed in her 21st birthday like her mother would have wanted her to. She spent a quiet day at an orphanage and later, her half-sister Anshula surprised her with a small, intimate ceremony at her home. Cousins Sonam and Rhea Kapoor too were there.
