Janhvi Kapoor is all set to make her Bollywood debut with upcoming movie Dhadak. The movie is just a few days away from its release. Dhadak, which also stars Ishaan Khatter is the Hindi remake of Marathi blockbuster Sairat, which starred Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar. Since the time it was announced that Janhvi will be making her Bollywood debut, she has constantly been under the limelight. As the release date of her film is approaching, she is in the news every other day.
Recently, in an interview to Film Companion, Anupama Chopra asked her if there was something people around her had asked her not to do. She revealed she has learnt to stay silent as much as possible and that she should not speak much. When prompted by her co-star Ishaan Khatter and Anupama, she said that it’s because of her being misquoted by the media.
“I recently learnt that I should not speak at all…as much as possible. Just from these articles around me, I am feeling like maybe I should just shut up. I don’t know, sometimes I read the kind of stuff that’s being printed and it makes me cringe. Stuff that I’ve said sometimes, it’s paraphrased of course. If I am talking to a person and really opening up I am gonna talk to them like I talk to him (Ishaan) and then I’ll have a conversation. I don’t know how to differentiate from like this is going to be a statement.”, Janhvi said.
Giving an example of the same, Janhvi said “Like yesterday we were asked a question, I think at the press conference about if you had the opportunity to do a biopic of an actor, who’s biopic would you do? Then I thought and I was like if he (Ishaan) was asking me this question I would obviously say you know this and this actors have led really interesting lives and it’d be so much fun to attempt something like that. So I said Madhubala ji and Meena Kumari ji. And then my dad sent me this message like why have you said that you can play Madhubala and Meena Kumari in a film. ”
“They just erased the question, so now it sounds like I think I can be, these magnanimous iconic people. I am not even like the dirt on their foot maybe. But it’s so daunting, I don’t know what to say ever. I just want to be quiet.”, Janhvi added.
Here’s the full interview:
Dhadak will hit the screens on 20th July 2018.
