Janhvi Feels Fortunate to Play Titular Roles
Janhvi when asked about playing back-to-back titular characters in Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, Roohi, Good Luck Jerry, Mili and Mr And Mrs Mahi, said, “I feel blessed honestly. More than the fact that whether it’s a titular role or not, I think I have been very fortunate with interesting and diverse characters. On being quizzed on the moderate success of Roohi at the box office despite the Covid second wave, Janhvi stated, “We released the film at a time when the pandemic was at its peak and theatres were operating in a limited capacity. Relatively our numbers were average, on paper nobody incurred a loss. But we would have anticipated a better number. But now when you look back and retrospect, there are so many films that aren’t even touching that number. So, it makes me guess some people did like it enough for sure.”

On being asked if she thinks herself to be a bankable star, Janhvi told, “I don’t think it’s for me to say. Other people should tell if I am or not.” Janhvi also revealed about her cricket training for Mr And Mrs Mahi and mentioned, “I injured myself twice. That has delayed everything a little bit. But I have realized what an insane skill it is to know how to bat. It’s actually quite complicated but I’m enjoying it so much. I feel so cool and powerful in it.”
