Sridevi with her first-born, Janhvi Kapoor. Days after her birth, young Janhvi made the cover of Stardust magazine back in October 1997. There are just a handful of people who were born famous in India - and when the images were leaked to the tabloids, the title read, "A New York Exclusive: Sri's baby caught and clicked!"
Till date, whether she's going to the gym or for a coffee, attending a friend's wedding or on holiday, she's caught and definitely clicked.

This week, she will, by her own volition pose for Vogue magazine, a shoot originally planned with her mother. The confluence of superstar mother and rising-star daughter would have been a sensational shoot (if Vogue's rich history with Sridevi is anything to go by).
With Sridevi's tragic and untimely passing, Janhvi appears on set by herself. Having been photographed since she was born, the confidant child of a superstar is bound to do a killer shoot.
Don't forget, Sridevi's daughter was the most famous Indian baby alive in the '90s - long before Taimur Ali Khan or Misha Kapoor.
It baffles us still that Sridevi will not be around to see the debut of this young girl. Will she be an actress or a star? Sridevi set such a high benchmark, Janhvi's got an alpine climb ahead to reach anywhere near the multiple award-winning Indian actress who also ruled the box-office with sari-clad ease.
