Janhvi Kapoor says people made her feel worthless during Dhadak and Gunjan Saxena: ‘I work my a** off’

Janhvi Kapoor, daughter of Sridevi and Boney Kapoor, got a big launchpad in the Hindi film industry with Karan Johar‘s Dhadak. She later played the role of Gunjan Saxena in her biopic, which was also produced under KJo’s banner Dharma Productions. But she couldn’t get the acceptance from the people who made her feel worthless thinking that she got everything on a platter, which she does not deserve.

“During Dhadak and Gunjan, I have been made to feel that I got everything on a platter, and I got things I don’t deserve, which means that I am technically worthless, and I am getting opportunities because of the work my parents have done,” Janhvi recalled in B4U podcast Hear It Here with Suchitra Pillai and Sudhi Sachdev.

She contined, “At the same time, I also felt an overwhelming respect and love for my parents, and I am being given love and work because of that. But the truth is that I love acting and I live for it. I work my ass off to give it back to them for what they have done for me, and because I am doing what I do because of their love. And then I realised that what I can do is to enjoy my work.”

“I do have respect for the fact that other people have lost out on the opportunity. But no thanks. I realised that what I can do is to make sure that I can give it more than my best and my everything. I don’t know about the beauty and talent I have, that you mention, but I do I know about the hard work I have put in for all my films,” she added.

Janhvi is currently seen in her recent OTT release Good Luck Jerry, which revolves around the life of a young girl, Jerry. The movie comically puts together her struggles as she goes above and beyond to save her ailing mother. But her path remains riddled with twists and turns in this journey bringing hilarious moments of chaos and comedy. The film stars Janhvi along with a terrific ensemble including Deepak Dobriyal, Mita Vashisht, Neeraj Sood and Sushant Singh.
