Janhvi Kapoor will make her debut in Bollywood with Dhadak. She stars in the film based on caste discrimination with Ishaan Khatter.

In an interview with Reuters, Janhvi talked about shooting for Dhadak 13 days after Sridevi’s unfortunate demise, “Yeah (it was tough), but I don’t want to feel sorry for myself. Now that I think about, if this had happened to someone else and I was told about it, I’d go, “poor thing”. But because I have lived it, there wasn’t even a second where I felt, “s**t, this is hard” or “I feel targeted”, because I was so blessed to be on that set every day. I was like, “thank god I have my work to come back to”. Otherwise there was no coming out of that. If I had to deal with people clicking pictures of me on set, I was like, “lene de yaar” (It doesn’t matter),” she said.

Janhvi also talked about the pressure she is facing for her highly anticipated debut. “It’s kind of like you are in an arena, on a podium. You are just standing there, watching people point fingers, judge and dissect you, but you have to keep a smile on your face and pretend to enjoy it the whole time. But getting the opportunity to do this film is more than I could ever have asked for, so you can put me on any podium in the world and I’ll take it,” she said in the interview.


here is a girl talking about her deceased mother - and readers of this article are like 'fake'.


Sour grapes..get a life.Jhanvi u go girl..make it happen.u are awesome..make ur family proud.

Sridevi didnt have any education. English and Hindi weren't her languages. Still she managed to reach the top.. reason- SHE IS SO GOOD AT ACTING.. Janhvi's favourite subjects are english and History. No wonder she is able to express herself clearly. Mama would have been proud of her.

motivational speaker is an alternative career for janhvi in case acting fails (which im sure it will not).

Kitna plastic surgery bhi kiya. Toh aab paisa waste thode naa karna hai. Kaam toh karna he hai. Karna padega.

desperate for fame/success/movie stardom

Aish is back

why is there suddenly an influx of sridevi related articles before dhadak's release..its as if they r talking abt her more than the movie's content..

wow! my respect for her is increasing with each answer. i like her

I miss Sridevi

Dang she knows how to talk

She knew her mother's substance abuse issues, acceptance is easier

Yes drama queen

Its okay to feel sorry for yourself Jhanvi.. Its ok to be however you want to be. You sound so much like your mom.. Even Sriji had a forward thinking outlook. You sound just like her. You don't have anything to prove to anyone girl. You have come a long way already. Audience will accept you. Your hard work will not go in vain. Please take care of yourself and your little sister

She speaks well, I'll give her that. I wish Sridevi was around to see how sorted and grown up her daughters have turned out to be.

Yes, I was thinking the same. She would have been so proud..
