Janhvi Kapoor made her impressive debut in Bollywood with Shashank Khaitan's Dhadak opposite Ishaan Khatter. Her earnest performance won the newcomer many hearts and fans. Then came the announcement that Janhvi will be starring in Karan Johar's directorial Takht which is jam-packed with an interesting ensemble featuring Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar. While there is still time for Takht to go on floors and the film only releases in 2020, Janhvi is already focusing on another project.

The actress will be seen playing the role of Gunjan Saxena in her biopic. Gunjan Saxena was the first female IAF pilot who flew into a combat zone during the Kargil War in 1999. Because of her bravery, she was honoured with the Shaurya Chakra, an Indian military decoration. A few weeks ago, we got the first glimpse of Janhvi as Gunjan dressed in her uniform and having a striking resemblance to the IAF pilot. But, Janhvi is taking things a step further to get into the skin of her character.

A source in the know revealed to Pinkvilla that Janhvi is in the process of gaining weight before the biopic goes on floors in February-March. The actress will be increasing her weight by six to seven kgs, which is saying a lot as Janhvi is very diet and fitness conscious. This is very evident on Instagram, as she keeps posting fitness videos.

Now, we know the reason why Janhvi had been posting all those food-binge videos on Instagram!

We can't wait to see Janhvi as Gunjan Saxena! What about you guys? Let us know your views in the comments section below.


one love story (introduction), one multi starrer, one biopic - everything is strategically (but boringly) planned for her, all kinds of plastic surgery, one major fashion designer dressing her all the time, gym day and night in tight clothing. It is like she does not or is not capable of an original thought or action. Compare that to how hard her mom worked to be what she was. PV, please post.

So what she should have done??? Her mother wanted the same way and she is getting it, why will anyone leave those opportunities. And Sridevi worked hard for improving her acting abilities but she never struggled for opportunities.

to be fair, sara'sgoing that way too...

one love story (introduction), one commercial film (mass appeal) - everything is strategically planned.... she has the same stylist as janhvi picking the same prints for her - she goes to the gym day and night....

and thats alia too.

literally everyone has strategies - everyone has a management team and mothers behind their backs telling them what to do (and janhvi in fact does not). strategy does not take away from hard away however - and all of them are putting in effort to be where they are, given the cut throat competition that exists.

Nepotism zindabad

she will look really good when she puts on weight. Her mother looked good too.

Improvement in Acting is not imp.

She will look amazing with those extra pounds, but I don't think she need especially for this movie as Gunjan herself was skinny during those days. And all her efforts look like add ons but the original content is your acting girl. Focus on that.

Woooo well deserve....she looks stunning and choosing good films over masala films

i hope she does well.

i found her pretty good in dhadak so idk what everyone is on about - i'm sure she'll do even better in her second movie.

hoping for . a similar jump the way we saw alia transform from SOTY-highway.... especially since this film seems to be riding only on janhvi.

but arent army people fit?

idk how actors play with their weight.

aamir in dangal was scary - im sure janhvi for this movie will be less extreme but gosh, i'd still never do it.

Why her? She acts horrible

Oh god she is struggling so much !

She will be more healthy with those kg on her i think she is too skinny now

Cool Jahnvi all the best for your movie
