Have you seen Janhvi Kapoor's photo album?

Janhvi Kapoor's silver screen goals come as no surprise.

After all, she had a ready inspiration at home in her mom, one of India's most celebrated superstars, Sridevi.

Growing up in the industry, Janhvi had the advantage of seeing it from close quarters through her mum and producer dad Boney Kapoor's involvement.

From accompanying her famous parents to filmi functions to starring in her own movie, Janhvi's exciting journey as a star kid meets the first landmark as star debut in Dhadak.

Sukanya Verma presents snapshots of Janhvi's growing up years.
