Janhvi Kapoor is one of the most beloved and undoubtedly one of the biggest actresses in the industry right now. Kapoor has proven her mettle with her choice of movies and has earned acclaim for her roles. In a recent interview, the actress opened up about dealing with male chauvinism and shared her thoughts on the matter. Scroll down to read the full story! 

Janhvi Kapoor talks about dealing with creepy guy energy

When asked about dealing with creepy guy energy and if she can sense it, Janhvi said, "Yeah, I don’t know about creepy, but I have an antenna for male chauvinist and backward-thinking energy, and that pisses me off. Like, I’ve met the wokest person on the planet, and even that person can have double standards without realizing it."

She further added that men can be intimidated by ambitious women, noting that while many claim they want a career-driven partner, truly being okay with it is a different ball game altogether.

Ranveer then asked if she had ever broken up with someone for that reason, to which Janhvi replied, "I guess you could say that, I don't know."
