Janhvi reveals how her films have helped her cultivate self-confidence
Bollywood actress Janhvi Kapoor has cemented her position as a star with five diverse films in her journey of four years which started with “Dhadak”, the Hindi remake of Nagraj Manjule’s popular Marathi musical “Sairaat”.
But, despite all the noise around nepotism, she has had her fair share of emotionally taxing experiences that have added to her performances on a subconscious level in her opinion.
The actress, who made her digital debut with her second anthology “Ghost Stories”, has recently come out with yet another streaming film titled “Good Luck Jerry” which like her debut, is a remake of a Tamil film “Kolamaavu Kokila” starring Nayanthara, who recently got married to Vignesh Shivan.
Janhvi spoke to IANS about her journey, so far, the emotionally draining moments and her vision towards her filmography.
The actress wants her filmography to be defined by scripts that appeal to the audience on an emotional level, as she said: “The kind of films that I gravitate towards, have an emotional connect (sic), I want to make people laugh and cry but more than anything, it’s important for me that I move people with my ability as an actor.
“I try to include those films in my filmography that can move people and I choose my scripts, accordingly. Having said that, I really want to do a full fledged front footed comedy.”
“Good Luck Jerry” tells the story of a girl who’s trying to make it in a not so easy world and wishes that she has a bit of luck by her side.
So how much does Janhvi herself believe in luck or for her hardwork is the only vehicle to move forward in life?
A thoughtful Janhvi said: “You can’t only rely on luck, it makes you complacent. Luck does play a part in a person’s life and success but, hard work is something that materialises the success, also your outlook is an important factor.”
For her, “art imitating life happens all the time – consciously or subconsciously”.
She opines that one can’t make something that they don’t know anything about. People won’t watch it unless they feel that it relates to them.
Also, with every film that she has done, the characters go through the same journey she has on a personal level.
Taking a slight pause, she mentioned: “With ‘Dhadak’ as everyone knows, there was a huge loss in my personal life similar to my character in the film, for ‘Gunjan Saxena’ she also faced the problem where everyone told her that she doesn’t belong to a place where she wishes to be in.”
The firmness in her voice soon kicks back in: “There was so much chatter around nepotism and how I don’t deserve the opportunity that I have got. While shooting for ‘Roohi’, I felt like I needed people to take care of me, then finally realised that independence is of true essence as she goes on to marry herself. So yeah it all has been closely interlinked for me.”
Her character in “Good Luck Jerry” seems to have rubbed off on her to a great extent as she said: “Earlier, I used to play down in complicated or confrontational scenarios. But, with time I realised that I am a person with opinions, who stands by them.
“I don’t mind people not taking that in their stride with me putting forth my opinion. Through the course of this film, I have changed from a people pleaser to the one who stands by what I truly believe in,” she signed off with a heartwarming smile.
Salman Khan HUGS Vicky Kaushal at IIFA 2023 day after snub, latter says ‘There is no point…’
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan grabbed eyeballs and invited criticism after his guards were recently seen pushing actor Vicky Kaushal aside while he was speaking at the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards 2023. Netizens even claimed that the star ignored Vicky and walked away and labelled him as “rude and arrogant”.
Within no time, the video of Vicky being shoved aside by Salman’s guards went viral on the internet, and fans of the former rallied by his side.
However, Salman made sure to put the controversy to rest after he was seen hugging Vicky only a day after allegedly snubbing him.
Salman Khan hugs Vicky Kaushal
As the IIFA Awards 2023 kickstarted in Abu Dhabi, celebs made sure to put their best feet forward as they arrived for the Day 1 of the gala event.
They also tried to interact with the media for a bit, and while Vicky was doing the same, he was spotted by none other than Salman.
In another video which has gone viral, Salman can be seen himself approaching Vicky while he was busy speaking to the media, and greeted him cordially. Not just that, but he even hugged Vicky and exchanged pleasantries before proceeding for the event.
Vicky Kaushal reacts to video of him being pushed away
While interacting with the media, Vicky was obviously questioned about the video of him being pushed aside by Salman’s guards which was pasted all over the internet.
However, the ‘Uri’ actor seemed to be unbothered by it and instead said that the entire incident was just blown out of proportion.
“A lot of times it happens that things are just blown out of proportion and a lot gets written about it. There is unnecessary chatter about many things. Things are not actually as they seem sometimes in the video. There is no point talking about that,” Vicky told.
Vicky-Abhishek turn hosts for IIFA 2023
Meanwhile, the IIFA Awards 2023 will be hosted by none other than Vicky Kaushal and Abhishek Bachchan.
Salman, who has been a regular at the gala event, made sure to accommodate it in his busy schedule this year as well. In the past, he had been seen hosting the event numerous times, but this time, he decided to hand it over to Vicky and Abhishek.
Among the other celebs who attended IIFA 2023 were Rajkummar Rao, Rakul Preet Singh, Varun Dhawan, Nora Fatehi, Badshah, Nushrratt Bharuccha, Sunny Singh, Radhika Madan, Urvashi Rautela, and others.
