Most of us would like to believe that starkids have a lot of liberty and live a carefree life. But not even one per cent of it is true in the case of Sridevi's daughters Jhanvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor. You would be surprised or rather SHOCKED to know that Jhanvi and Khushi have a lot of restrictions just like each one of us do! So what does that mean? It means that Sridevi's kids have had a "normal" childhood, if that's what you call it as, and they continue to abide by the rules even till today. In an interview with DNA, mommy Sridevi, for the first time, opens up about how strict she has been with her kids and how Jhanvi and Khushi have always followed the rules and have been obedient kids all this while.

On setting curfews for Jhanvi and Khushi
Did you know that Jhanvi and Sara had curfews? Yep, they do! In the interview, Sridevi says, "Yes, rules are same for both Jhanvi and Khushi. They know they have a curfew time and they have to be back home. Else, I will keep calling and inquiring."
On being asked whether they bargain with the timings sometimes, the actress says, "They react by bargaining. They will be like, ‘Mama, half-an-hour more? Mama, 20 minutes more, please? But they are very obedient children. Touchwood. Both Jhanvi and Khushi are very understanding, and they know their limits really well."
Food and sleeping habits..
"Both of them are extremely health conscious and I don’t have to control them. It’s not like everything’s going haywire, it has never reached that level. Sometimes, one late night and the next day they start cribbing saying ‘we can’t handle it’. So it’s good that they know the value of being healthy so I don’t have to push them too much."
On inquiring about their whereabouts every now and then
"There’s an insecurity about my children, when they go out, till they are back I am worried. I call them several times to just find out ki kya ho raha, gaadi kahi ruk gayi hai ya nahi. These are all the basic things that any other mother keeps worrying about when it comes to her children." (ALSO READ: After Mom, Sridevi’s next film is gonna be Mr India 2 with Anil Kapoor)
On being an extremely protective mother..
"I didn’t want Jhanvi to become an actress. As a parent, one is naturally protective of their children and you are literally exposing them to the world. Itne saal aapne usko protect kiya and you want them to just happily settle. Bas stress-free ho jao but that doesn’t happen. Today, children too have their own minds and beginning mein, I ignored it and tried to caution her saying that this is a tough job. There’s so much sacrifice, so much to give — no pain, no gain. But it seems she’s ready for it. As parents, we will support her."
