Janhvi Kapoor doesn’t need an occasion to remember her late mother Sridevi. The Dhadak actress, who frequently posts pictures of her mother on her Instagram, shared a million-dollar photograph of herself with Sridevi on her profile to mark the Mr India actress’ 56th birth anniversary. Janhvi’s post is a throwback picture of the mother-daughter duo posing together.
