Here's why Janhvi didn't take inspiration from her mother's ChaalBaaz while shooting for Roohi.

With Roohi, actor Janhvi Kapoor explores two ‘extremes of humanity’ in the same film, and that was the reason she was drawn to it. In one of her recent interviews Janhvi decribed Afza as a character with a ‘very animalistic, inhumane energy’, while Roohi as ‘vulnerable, fragile and docile’. Her mother, late actor Sridevi, pulled off diverse roles in films such as ChaalBaaz but as per Janhvi she made a conscious effort not to use them as a reference point. “There was no real reference point for Afza’s character, and I was trying to be conscious about not mimicking anyone. I don’t think anyone in the world can match up to the level of work that my mother has put out. I would honestly always have a hard time watching ChaalBaaz because they were very mean to her in the film. As a kid, I was very traumatised every time I tried to watch that film,”, she added. How are you liking Janhvi's work in Roohi? Drop a comment below.
