Actor Juhi Chawla’s 17-year-old daughter, Jhanvi, recently made headlines when she was present at the Indian Premier League auction, bagging the best players for Kolkata Knight Riders (the team is co-owned by Juhi and her husband Jay Mehta). Unlike the general notion of a star kid willing to take up acting in future, or star parents wishing that their kids carry their legacy forward, Juhi says she did not wish any such thing.
“There is too much of the parenting stuff going on these days. Parents put pressure and interfere with what they [their kids] are doing, which I think is highly unnecessary. That is not something that I have ever done with my kids,” says Juhi, who also has a 14-year-old son Arjun. The actor, who was last seen on the silver screen in the film Chalk n Duster (2016) feels that giving one’s children an environment of support is one of the best forms of encouragement.
