In a heartwarming tribute to the enduring legacy of her mother and late superstar Sridevi, Bollywood actress Janhvi Kapoor has taken on the role of host at her family’s cherished Chennai residence. This luxury dwelling, rich with personal history and sentimental value, is being offered as a free stay for two lucky guests on the popular vacation rental platform Airbnb, under its ‘Icons’ category.

The announcement was unveiled at an exclusive launch event, where Janhvi Kapoor expressed her sentiment towards the Chennai mansion. “I think this house symbolizes such a special chapter in my mother’s legacy and in all of our lives,” Kapoor stated. “It was her first major purchase once she started working and her ‘prized possession,’ really.” This picturesque family home holds a special place in the history of one of Indian cinema’s most beloved actresses and now invites fans to share in its legacy.

Nestled in the warmth of Chennai, the Kapoor family home extends an invitation to delve into the sweetest memories of Janhvi’s childhood, opening up one bedroom and bathroom for two guests. “Growing up it was always like a theme in our lives, alright we are going to Chennai, and we have a city house,” reminisced Kapoor, citing numerous family visits to the house and her mother’s love for the beach.

Through Airbnb’s ‘Icons’ category, the bungalow offers an exclusive glimpse into the personal life of the iconic actress Sridevi, known for her remarkable contributions to Indian cinema. “What you can expect is very good energy, we have made a lot of special memories in that house, an amazing view, access to the beach, and just a nice place to relax and be with yourself,” Kapoor promised.

The stay, available from May 12, promises a tranquil ambiance with breathtaking ocean views, perfect for practicing yoga or simply relaxing by the sea. In a feast for the senses, guests will be treated to authentic South Indian cuisine, perhaps reflecting the favorite flavors of the actress herself, and they may even have the opportunity to indulge in beauty secrets inspired by Janhvi.

Moreover, the uniqueness of this Airbnb experience is highlighted by the inclusion of Sridevi’s home in the select group of Icon homes that offer complimentary stays under certain conditions. A golden ticket program is in place for applicants who fit set criteria, with 4,000 such opportunities made available this year.

When questioned about the security of the home under the Airbnb arrangement, Kapoor maintained a trusting disposition: “Please don’t steal anything. See, I trust my fans a lot and honestly, I trust Airbnb a lot more; they are known for their credibility.” She conveyed her family’s longstanding desire to share this treasured property with others, fostering a sense of trust and community.
