Janhvi Kapoor, speaking of the constant attention she receives: “I know people are waiting to point a finger at me.”
Whether it’s been for her appearance, acting skills, or privileged upbringing, Janhvi Kapoor has been the target of harsh criticism. The actress is fully cognizant of both the benefits and drawbacks of being in the public eye at all times. Janhvi, however, is unaffected by the criticism because she knows that her work speaks for itself.
“People are just waiting for an opportunity to criticize me. They say “dekho kitni eager, kitni desperate hain” if the paps catch me smiling too widely in front of the gym. Janhvi said at the India Today Conclave 2023, “I am having a bad day and I am having a huge pimple on my face and I look down and just walk, start my shoot, or get over it, then it’s like ‘kitni ghamandi hain.
“Learn the hard way that whatever appears in the paper today or the garbage can tomorrow doesn’t matter much. Opinions fade away, but your accomplishments and confidence in yourself will always remain. These are all intangible concepts, “She continued.
Janhvi is well aware that the majority of her fame stems from her parents’ fame (Boney Kapoor and Sridevi) and only a small amount from her own efforts. She claimed that the thoughts of others were unimportant, but that how she herself felt about her work was crucial.
“Learn the hard way that what appears in the newspaper today may be thrown away tomorrow. Thoughts and beliefs about oneself, as well as the results of one’s work, are more lasting than any external validation. None of these things can be held in one’s hands. I’m flattered by all the interest being shown in me. It’s a hit with everyone. This, however, should not go to your head. A person’s level of importance can rise and fall quickly. The credit for the initial focus today goes to my parents. I still owe a lot to the fortunate circumstances of my birth family. I’d like to think that the work I’m doing now is responsible for at least some of that. All of life boils down to work. It is not a matter of whether or not I wore shorts to the gym. No, she clarified, “those aren’t the qualities I hope to be remembered for.
The film NTR30, directed by Kortala Siva, will mark Janhvi’s professional debut alongside Jr. NTR in the south. Next, she’ll be seen alongside Rajkummar Rao in Mr. and Mrs. Mahi.
