From working together to going on trips and sharing adventures, the two seem to share a close bond with each other.
Apart from revealing their secret crushes and who they are chasing on Instagram, Sara and Janhvi also described their relationship with their parents, especially their mother.
Sara Ali Khan on having a different upbringing than Janhvi Kapoor
Although Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor share a close bond with each other, the two have had completely different upbringings, Karan Johar highlighted on the show.
He says, “Jhanvi is a bit of a princess in her house, brought up in a certain way… Even now with your father, I see she calls you all the time. She’s definitely not on your speed dial, but you’re on her.”
Turning his attention to Sarah, he continued, “So she was raised by a protective father and mother and a protective environment. Where you have a different kind of upbringing because you see the separation of the parents, and then of course you have to mature more quickly and get. in that region.”
In response Sarah shares that she thinks they are very different because of the way they were raised. However, he clarifies that he feels no sense of FOMO (fear of missing out) when it comes to not being defensive.
“But having said that, mum’s not defensive in the way she’ll call me 10 times, but she’s a very, very strong person who I know has my back,” she adds.
Janhvi opens up about the loss of mother Sridevi
Dhadak actress Janhvi Kapoor, who lost her mother in 2018, revealed that she is “still unable to come to terms” with the loss of her mother.
“I think it would have been impossible to go through this without Anshula didi and Arjun bhaiyya. I think nothing can compensate for the loss I have endured. But it is a new dynamic. I feel I am a different person,” she says.
Furthermore, he shared that it almost seems as if the person he was when his mother was a “fantasy” and that the life he had was “ideal” and “dreamlike”.
He added, “The reality I live in now is very anchored. It feels safe only because of Arjun Bhaiya and Anshula Didi. I’d like to think I’ve retained and preserved everything he instilled in me but it’s almost hard to remember the person I was because it was different.”
“I don’t think I’ve dealt with it to be honest, and I should but I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time,” she adds.
How the pandemic helped him cope
While acknowledging her rights, Janhvi said the lockdown has been “great” for her. For him, it was better not to be seen for a bit and said it was his only “sign of normalcy”.
The pandemic gave him time to “figure out” his dynamic with his father and sister after losing his mother.
“I don’t think we ever had time to understand or make that adjustment because we were all trying to distract ourselves. But then we were in the house, all together and we, I think, became best friends in a way,” he recalled.
