But a section of users on the internet found it insensitive on Janhvi’s part to celebrate her birthday within just a few days of her mother’s death. Not just Janhvi, but the other Kapoors who were with her on her 21st birthday – Khushi, Sonam and Rhea Kapoor, Shanaya, Jahaan and Anshula Kapoor – were also trolled for sharing the birthday photos on social media.
“What’s the hurry to celebrate the b day just 1 week after cremation, they could not postpone their celebration after 13 days is so surprising, moving on is important but please at least wait for the mourning period to get over. Nobody is asking them to be sad and crying all the time. It’s the timing of posting such a pic is what is odd,” wrote a user on a group photo of the Kapoor cousins shared by Sonam while another wrote: “Touchwood, but if I would have lost (someone close), I would not be smiling for photos the way she is doing. No offence for anyone here.”
While there quite a few trolls, there were many who jumped to Janhvi’s defence on Instagram: “Happy to see her trying to cope. Janhvi, don’t let idiots tell you you’re a worthless person, because you’re not, you’re one to strongest person I’ve seen. Happy birthday!”
