Career

Janhvi Kapoor embarked on her career as a model and actress in the industry. Her debut film was directed by Shashank Khaitan, a remake of the Marathi movie “Sairat”. The Hindi version depicted her as a young upper-class girl whose life takes a tragic turn after eloping with a lower-class boy (played by Ishaan Khatter). In the same year, Janhvi Kapoor was chosen as the brand ambassador for the cosmetics brand Nykaa.

While the film received predominantly negative reviews, it proved to be a commercial success, with a worldwide collection of ₹1.1 billion. In 2020, she featured in the Netflix horror anthology “Ghost Stories” in a segment directed by Zoya Akhtar. Reviewer Rajeev Masand criticized the film for removing caste-based references but praised Kapoor’s screen presence, noting her “fragility that makes her instantly endearing and a soulful quality that makes it hard to take your eyes off her on screen”.

Janhvi Kapoor also starred in “Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl” and the comedy-horror film “Roohi Afzana”, where she shared the screen with Rajkummar Rao. However, Anna M. M. Vetticad of Firstpost felt that Kapoor’s performance lacked personality and was somewhat colorless.

She is set to appear alongside Kartik Aaryan and Laksh Lalwani in “Dostana 2” and will also feature in Karan Johar’s directorial “Takht”. Janhvi Kapoor received the Zee Cine Award for Best Female Debut and has quickly become one of the most popular stars in Hindi cinema, achieving significant success in a relatively short career.
