The daughter of late actress Sridevi, Janhvi Kapoor is going to make her Bollywood debut with the upcoming film Dhadak!
The upcoming film Dhadak is very close to its release now. And so is Janhvi Kapoor to her Bollywood debut. She is going to be seen alongside Ishaan Khatter in the film. And being the late actress Sridevi’s daughter, she has already started facing questions on nepotism.
Talking to Reuters, she said, “I underestimated how angry people are. They are pissed off. But I can’t judge. I can understand where their frustration is coming from. It must be hard. I do feel cornered and bullied at times. Like, ‘why are you so angry?’ Maybe I suck, but give me a chance.”
But she is not someone who is going to give up as she said, “I understand that you feel like you have been robbed of an opportunity that has been handed to me. I’m sure there are people who are more talented than me, and more good looking than me I promise you there are. But I am not going to pass on this opportunity just because… (trails off). It’s a big deal for me. Why the hell should I give it up?”
Janhvi values the opportunity that she has got and wants to make the most out of it. “The only thing I can do is value it and make the most of it. It is wrong and messed up if I take advantage of it, am complacent and think it is my birthright to be here. I know it is not. I know I need to earn people’s love. And I know I need to work ten times harder because there is a stigma attached to how I’ve gotten this opportunity,” said the actress.
Meanwhile, her film Dhadak is slated to release on July 20, this year.
