Janhvi Kapoor wanted to quit acting because of this reason

While actress Janhvi Kapoor is slowly cementing her place in the industry one good performance at a time, her younger sister Khushi Kapoor is also all set to follow her footsteps. Khushi is going to make her acting debut with Zoya Akhtar's 'The Archies' and in a recent media interaction, Janhvi Kapoor shared that she was quite bummed and wanted to quit acting because she missed the first shoot of her sister's career.

Janhvi told Mashable India, “I was there for Khushi’s first day of the shoot but I had to leave before she could take her first shot. I was there for her hair and make-up. I had to leave because I had to reach Lucknow to shoot Bawaal and I have cried and cried and cried. I was like, ‘Kaisi behen hoon main, what does it all even mean, I wasn’t able to be there for her, for her first day of shoot’ and I was just like in the worst mood. I was like acting ho gaya mera, main chod rahi hoon, I have to be there for my sister. I need to make sure everything is good."

While this seems like an immature case of senseless self pity, Janhvi says that her mother Sridevi also used felt like this. She stated, "Mom (Sridevi) used to say this. I remember she was shooting English Vinglish and she missed Khushi’s birthday and she called us howling like ‘I never want to act again, I just want to be there for my kids.’ I was like ‘Mom, you’ve been there always. It’s fine, we’ll be there, in 10 days we’ll see you.’ And I never understood that feeling but now I do. Now I did some shoot in Chennai and I couldn’t spend time with dad and I had to leave quickly, I barely got five minutes with him and I saw him after a month and I called him from the airport howling. I was just like, ‘Oh god, I miss you'."
