Inside Janhvi Kapoor’s home in Chennai | Vogue India

Returning to her holiday abode in Chennai, encompassed by everything her late mother treasured and her father painstakingly reestablished, actor Janhvi Kapoor realizes the force of a home worked with adoration

At the point when I step through the heavy wooden gate of Janhvi Kapoor's home in Chennai, the actor's trademark doe eyes crinkle with unrestrained happiness. This is the primary home that was purchased by Sridevi, whose troublesome end in 2018 sent shock waves through the whole nation, and Kapoor is convinced that the strong walls of the space continue to be saturated with her late mum's energy. It's one reason why the family has since been furiously defensive of their holiday home, keeping its entryways immovably shut to fans, media and paparazzi alike. That is until Boney Kapoor willingly volunteered to direct its renovations personally, and, a year and a half ago — on Khushi Kapoor's birthday — finally gave his daughters the go-ahead to visit and bring their companions along. The sisters, who had recently been unable to deal with their mother's recollections, in any event, staying at a lodging while in Chennai for Sridevi's prayer meet, felt areas of strength for a towards their young life home and got themselves eager to return.

During my conversation with Kapoor, the words "this is my favorite part of the house" come up rather regularly, which is understandable considering the opinions attached to the abode being referred to. It is capacious, certain — not an anomaly for a VIP home — yet it clearly was Sridevi's unrivaled delight when she purchased and breathed life into it before her marriage to Boney Kapoor. A verdant front yard teeming with variegated types of plants and trees — among which sit an ornate marble seat and table — welcomes me after entering. "This is actually one of my favorite spots in the house," says the 25-year-old actor, pausing to overlap her hands in obeisance to the Ganpati statue placed adjacent to the lawn. "I have such affectionate memories of the time I enjoyed here with mum," she continues. "She and I would leave for Chennai a little while before my father would arrive because she'd want to decorate the house with blossoms and make sure all the dishes he cherished were ready. You'd always hear the strains of Mani Ratnam and A. R. Rahman's music when mum was around. Once, dad made his famous extra messy, extra creamy scrambled eggs, and we as a whole sat around and ate them on this very patio. It was exciting because it was whenever he first had cooked for us," she reminisces, her face radiant from the memory.
