In the Sharan Sharma directorial, Janhvi Kapoor is paired opposite Rajkummar Rao
Often in the news for her sartorial choices, Janhvi Kapoor has been keeping quite busy on the work front too. Just recently, the Mili actress confessed to ‘manifesting’ her role in Koratala Siva’s NTR 30, starring Jr NTR, Saif Ali Khan and Prakash Raj. And now, Janhvi took to social media to announce that she has wrapped up the shooting of Mr. & Mrs. Mahi, a sports drama film that chronicles the life story of cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
The actress took to social media to write a heratfelt note about the completion of this project. "2 years since I first picked up my bat. And now we’ve finally wrapped #MrandMrsMahi 🏏 I thought I’d wake up today feeling lighter and relieved because we all gave more to this film than we thought was even possible. But I feel kind of empty. Like a blank canvas. I feel like we’ve been to war and back, and I saw so many heroes in action. @vikrant_yeligeti @abhisheknayar we would have been lost without you’ll. And i would have definitely collapsed on day 1 only 🙈 @manushnandandop sir you carried us on your shoulders and made sure we reached the finish line. @anaygoswamy for making every battle look like a beautiful painting. Our entire AD team!!!! Lead by @deepu_sharma_ @sankyluthra you guys are the real heroes. You’ll never gave up, and never stepped down in moments of adversity, you’ll rose to every occasion. Fought every battle. @sharanssharma you made sure, no matter how difficult things got, that none of us were compromising on our attempt at excellence. Under the burden of the worlds stress, still pushing, never settling. And along with @mehrotranikhil allowed us to find and create moments of truth and beauty. And gave me Mahima. Despite how hard it’s been, I know she has been a gift to me that’s meant more than even I’m being able to realise at this point. @rajkummar_rao I am so lucky, to have worked with you and witnessed your genius. You added magic to our film. My team ❤️ @rivieralynn @sushmitavankar for keeping me sane. For giving me strength. For lifting me up when I needed it. For having my back always. And making me look cute 🥰 @priyanka.s.borkar 💕 on and off set support lol. @sheetal_f_khan @tanvichemburkar ❤️❤️ @parth.dholakia", Janhvi wrote.
Co-written and directed by Sharan Sharma and produced by Karan Johar, Mr. & Mrs. Mahi also stars Rajkummar Rao. Sharan also helmed Janhvi’s Netflix movie Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. Posting a sunset picture on her Instagram stories, Janhvi wrote, “It’s a wrap #MrandMrsMahi”. Among the other actors in the Dharma Productions film are Abhilash Chaudhary, Zarina Wahab, Kumud Mishra, Rajesh Sharma and Yamini Das.
This is the second time Janhvi and Rajkummar are paired together in a movie. Remember in 2021, the two acted together in Roohi - a comedy horror film, helmed by Hardik Mehta. In Mr. & Mrs. Mahi - which appears to be Janhvi’s first sports movie - Rajkummar will be seen as Mahendra, while she will play Mahima.
Earlier, Janhvi had shared some BTS pictures of the upcoming sports film on social media. In those pictures, the actress was seen donning cricketing gear and honing her batting skills with cricketer Dinesh Karthik. “Cricket camp. Mr and Mrs Mahi”, read the caption. More details about the movie are awaited.
Cut to her next release, Nitesh Tiwari-directed film Bawaal - in which Janhvi is starring opposite Varun Dhawan - is slated to release on October 6. The story revolves around a small-town man, who falls in love with the ‘most beautiful girl’ in town. But he apparently wants to marry her to lift his own social status.
