While talking about how her family loves films and what she learned on her mom Sridevi's film set, Janhvi said, "After losing mom, the only thing that's kept me going and my dad going I think, apart from the love and support from family, is our love for films. Honestly, I don't think I'd have the will to go through it if I didn't love what I do so much, in a way that's almost selfish. I love it so much that...It's almost keeping me alive."
