Since making her debut in 2018, Janhvi Kapoor has been opposed to her contemporaries by the public and has also been compared to her mother, superstar Sridevi. The actress insists that competition is healthy and says there is enough work for everyone.
“I believe in healthy competition. I find my contemporaries inspiring and motivating. They keep me on my toes and they do a great job. There is something to be learned from each of them. We all find our space and try to make our own way, ”Janhvi told IANS.
She added, “I really believe you can coexist in the industry. There may be times when two or more people watch the same movie, but that’s part of life. Ultimately, what’s best for the movie and what’s meant for the movie will happen, but I think the competition is extremely healthy.
So far, she has been seen in the OTT films “Ghost Stories” and “Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl”, after her 2018 big screen release “Dhadak”. The actress also has 9.5 million Instagram followers.
“I always have the feeling that these are my first steps in what I want to do. So I didn’t even get close. I see actors like Alia Bhatt and I saw her Gangubai Kathiawadi teaser. I realized that if I thought I knew acting a bit, after watching this trailer, I felt that with the level of acting that she brought to this country and the industry , she raised the bar, ”Janhvi said.
The 23-year-old actress is currently awaiting the release of her next film “Roohi”, a horror comedy. The film co-stars Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma.
“Roohi” follows the 2018 hit “Stree” and “Laxmii” from last year, and there’s a slew of horror comedies lined up, namely “Bhoot Police”, “Phone Bhoot” and “Bhool Bhulaiya 2”. “.
When asked if she fears competition between films in the same genre, Janhvi is a diplomat: “A good film will be right and I hope we made it a good enough film. I’m a cinephile, so if there are any other good movies, I’ll be happy to see them. I want my film to do well but that doesn’t mean that I want others not to do well.
In “Roohi,” Janhvi plays the supernatural character of a “chudail” (witch or banshee), which the actress said was exhausting.
“We shot it a year and a half ago. It was physically exhausting. (We) tried to get that voice (from the banshee) – the screams, the screams and a lot of harness work. It was quite trying. I had a lot of back problems because of it, ”said Janhvi Kapoor.
The film is set to hit big screens on March 11.
“Please go watch the movie, take a mask and disinfectant, but go to the movies and watch my movie.” My life depends on it. Theater culture depends on it, ”she concludes with a call.
