Janhvi Kapoor turned 21 on March 6, just 10 days after her mother Sridevi passed away at a Hotel in Dubai. It was Janhvi’s first birthday without her mother. But to make her feel loved despite the huge loss, her sisters – Sonam Kapoor, Khushi, Shanaya, Anshula and more came together to celebrate her turning 21. Sonam and Anshula posted the picture and their followers didn’t find these appropriate. Most were shocked that the family who had been in mourning just a week ago, has moved on too soon and is already in a happy, cheerful mood.

The fans saw this as insensitive and opined that the family could have waited for at least 13 days or six months before celebrating special occasions. Here are some of the negative comments. “So insensitive gesture from kapoor family. Sridevi died few days back & you guys are so happy.” “Unexpected and Shameful.” “Clearly I can see happiness on there faces if they were sad they could wait at least for six months but celebration is more important to them.” “how these two cud proceed in such a way…… its not na u shudnt move on….bt still.. few days back sridevi ji died… how cud they smile?” ALSO READ: Irrfan Khan – Deepika Padukone’s Sapna Didi To Get Delayed Further, Producer Prernaa Arora Opens Up
While Sonam, Anshula and Rhea’s post all invited some hateful comments there were also fans who saw this picture as an inspiration and called Janhvi and Khushi so strong for trying all in their might to move on from their big loss. They even called them the perfect examples of strong women who need to be celebrated on Women’s Day. Which side are you on?
