Janhvi Kapoor on her initial days as an actor: Felt like I got everything on a platter

Janhvi Kapoor is currently on the receiving end of praise for her stellar performance in Good Luck Jerry, which was released on Disney+Hotstar recently. The daughter of Boney Kapoor and Sridevi, the actress’ name has figured in the debate on nepotism in the industry. Janhvi recently opened up about her initial days in the industry, where she was made to feel like she did not deserve the opportunities she got.

The actress made her debut with the 2018 film Dhadak, which was followed by roles in Ghost Stories and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl in 2020. In conversation with Suchitra Pillai and Sudhi Sachdev on their podcast, as reported by The Free Press Journal, Janhvi spoke of her experience on the sets of Dhadak and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. The actress spoke of how she was made to feel like she did not deserve the things she got, and that most of the opportunities she got were due to her parents. Speaking of how she was made to feel ‘worthless’, Janhvi said “I have been made to feel that I got everything on a platter”.

Janhvi went on to talk about how she had an overwhelming amount of love and respect for her parents, because of whom she was able to get her start as an actress. She said that in truth, she loved and lived for acting and tried to work as hard as she could to give back to her parents. Admitting that she ‘respected’ the fact that other people would have lost out on such opportunities, Janhvi said she came to the realisation that she should enjoy her work as much as she could.

The actress’ upcoming releases include Mili, Mr And Mrs Mahi as well as Bawaal. The former is produced by Boney, and the latter two will see Janhvi share the screen with Rajkummar Rao and Varun Dhawan respectively.
