Janhvi Kapoor has only done three full length feature films so far, but has a few interesting projects lined up. The actor’s next is Good Luck Jerry, which is set for a later this month. The actor has now talked about what she expects from the movie and how she wants to make people look beyond her innocent image on screen. 

“People have kind of mentally put me in this box of 'bholi si hai', 'shaant' and 'bechari' (innocent, quiet, helpless). Maybe it's the energy I give out. It's also probably because of the films I've done," Janhvi told PTI, as reported by Outlook India. 

Janhvi also talked about Kolamavu Kokila, the Tamil original which has been remade into Good Luck Jerry. She said that she saw the original and thought it was “cool and funny” and that she is a big fan of Nayanthara and Yogi Babu. Calling Nayanthara a badass, she said that she thought that Good Luck Jerry is a new space for her. 

She pointed out that Nayanthara’s character in the original was innocent and simple yet had a solid character arc and that she thinks that Good Luck Jerry is a chance to show people that there is a lot more to her. 

Directed by Nelson, the black comedy stars Nayanthara in the lead, playing an innocent young woman who is thrown into the world of drug business. The remake has Janhvi take the lead with Deepak Dobriyal, Mita Vashisht, Neeraj Sood and Sushant Singh in important roles. 

Backed by Aanand L. Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions and directed by Sidharth Sengupta, Good Luck Jerry is set to release of Disney+ Hotstar on July 29.
