Beautiful actress Janhvi Kapoor is set to make her Bollywood debut with Dhadak. Her dream wanted to see herself on screen is finally come true. She said, “I remember I would watch random movies and was obsessed with ‘Om Shanti Om’. I would enact every scene from the film and force Khushi to be Shah Rukh Khan and I’d be Deepika, doing that typical hand wave.”
Sridevi’s daughter is excited and nervous too for this grand entry into Bollywood. She said, “For me, this has been a personal journey which is coming to an end and that feeling is a little emotional.”
In a recent interview, she talked about her acting dreams and how she enacted scenes from every film at home. She started out with an acting course at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute in Los Angeles.
THe daughter of film producer Boney Kapoor said, “In one of the classes, I was performing in front of a camera and in another, I was on stage. Though I didn’t learn much through the course, I realised that acting was my calling. I expressed my concern to my parents, and told them that I didn’t wish to take up any more courses. After I came back, I worked on my Hindi diction and dancing skills.
She break the news of becoming an actor at home. “I told my mother and her reaction was, ‘aiyyo’. I extended my stay in Los Angeles because I still needed to come out of my shell. I wanted to experience life that was independent of my parents. My parents were still uncertain, but their biggest concern was the dedication and time it required. Ultimately, they sensed that I was passionate about it,” she added.
When she bagged Dhadak, she cried in her room because it felt like everything she wanted in her life was happening. Dhadak is like a dream come true.
In the last, on asking about compare between her and her mother Sridevi she said, “I am her daughter, we share similar personality traits and physical attributes. I am not trying to escape any comparisons with her. Even if I have an ounce of her talent, it will be a big deal for me. Hopefully, I’ll be able to carve my own identity along with it.”
