Janhvi Kapoor’s debut movie has been performing well at the box office. The film has opened up to a lot of good reviews and praises for Janhvi’s acting. Janhvi’s chemistry with Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishan Khatter has set the screens on fire and is one of the best things about the movie. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Janhvi spoke about her family’s reaction to the movie and how overwhelmed she is with all the love that Dhadak is receiving.
“The love has been overwhelming,” says Janhvi. “More than anything else, it feels good to know that we’ve moved people with this message that we were trying to convey. I’m just happy about any form of acceptance, so I have a chance to work more and do better at what I love. To see my father (film producer Boney Kapoor), Shashank (Khaitan, director of Dhadak) and Karan (Johar, producer of Dhadak) feeling so proud and happy means the world to me.”
Talking about her families reaction to Dhadak, the actress said, “Khushi was crying She looked at me and said, ‘Why are you worrying?’ and then started crying again. Papa actually saw the film a month ago, and as soon as the screening was over, he went to the temple. That night he came to my room and held me tight and started crying.”
In the same interview, she also spoke about how challenging it would be to take the family’s legacy forward. But she also feels lucky that she could learn so much about the cinema and the industry right from home. “It’s lovely to have had access to so much knowledge and seen two sides of the coin,” says Janhvi.
