Actress Janhvi Kapoor on Thursday shared a memory of her mother, late superstar Sridevi, on the occasion of her 57th birth anniversary.
Janhvi has posted a black and white picture on Instagram, where she hugs her mother. Mother and daughter look into the camera and smile.
“I love you mumma,” Janhvi captioned the image.
Sridevi passed away in February 2018, drowning in a bathtub in a Dubai hotel. Her death has been recorded as an accident.
Janhvi returned to the screens with a new release “Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl“, which premiered on a digital platform on Wednesday. The film landed in controversy after the Indian Air Force (IAF) addressed a letter to the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC), Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, and the streaming platform releasing the film, claiming that it finds certain scenes in the trailer of Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl objectionable.
In the letter, IAF alleged, “Certain scenes and dialogues in the movie and its trailer, which was forwarded to this Office for viewing, have been found to portray the IAF in an undue negative light. In the aim to glorify the screen character of Ex-Fit Lt Gunjan Saxena, M/s Dharma Productions presented some situations that are misleading and portray an inappropriate work culture especially against women in the IAF.”
IAF as a service has always ensured that the organisation is gender neutral and has always provided an equal opportunity to both male and women personnel. The summary of the scenes/ dialogues of the script, which are considered objectionable due to the presentation of incorrect gender bias, is annexed,” IAF added.
