Janhvi Kapoor has started to face the pressure of being star kid even before the release of her debut film! Janhvi has been going all out to promote her first film Dhadak and has been travelling across the country with co-star Ishaan Khatter. With only two weeks left until the release of the film, Jahnvi Kapoor has now opened up about her career choices and how her parents reacted when she told them that she wanted to become an actress. 

Janhvi recently revealed that her mother Sridevi had asked her to reconsider her decision. She stated, “She always felt that I am too naive. Mom and dad are very protective of me. They didn’t think I was equipped to deal with the non-creative aspect of filmmaking. Mom wasn’t too happy. She felt she had worked so hard to give her children an easy life. But I didn’t want that, I wanted a fulfilling one. I aspired to have that creative expression, that experience in real life with the struggles. I am very thankful for everything I have, but I am hungry to experience more than whatever has been given to me.” 

When further questioned about her acting aspirations, she replied, “When I was a kid, I used to make up stories in my head and play characters. I loved entertaining people. I remember, in school, I would be animated and crack jokes. Also, movies have had a huge influence on my life. I’ve always been passionate about cinema. However, I wanted to explore other avenues like writing and study history. I thought I’d do all these courses, but when I started with an acting course, I realised this was my calling.” 

Well, here’s wishing Janhvi all the best for her first film. Dhadak is all set to release on July 20th, 2018.
