Boney Kapoor has cleared the air on wedlock rumors and shared that his daughter Janhvi Kapoor was not “born before marriage.”
The Indian film producer married the renowned actress Sridevi in 1996 and announced it publicly a couple of months later in January when his wife's pregnancy was visible.
During a conversation with YouTuber Rohan Dua recently, Boney revealed, “My second marriage, my marriage with Sri (took place in Shirdi). We got married on June 2. We exchanged vows, we spent a night there and it was only in January when her pregnancy was seen that we had no choice, but to marry publicly.”
“It took place in Shirdi, on June 2. (But), in public, we were married only in January (1997). That is why some scribes still write she (Janhvi) was born before marriage, something like that,” he further explained.
Boney Kapoor on Sridevi's religious practices:
Boney Kapoor also candidly talked about the religious practices of his late wife Sridevi and Janhvi Kapoor.
In the same discussion, the Mr. India director recalled that his wife used to walk from “Juhu to Siddhi Vinayak barefoot” whenever he was in trouble.
Boney continued, “Whether it was Sri (Sridevi), whether it was Sunita (brother Anil Kapoor's wife), whether it was me or Anil or my daughter Janhvi. (We are religious). She goes to Tirupathi every three months.”
He continued, “My wife Sridevi used to walk to Tirupathi on every birthday of hers. Whenever I was in trouble, she walked from Juhu to Siddhi Vinayak barefoot.”
