Janhvi started her journey in Hindi cinema in 2018 with ‘Dhadak’. She was later seen in films as different as chalk and cheese such as ‘Ghost Stories’, ‘Roohi’, ‘Gunjan Saxena’ and ‘Good Luck Jerry’.
At 25, how does she pick her films?
“I think for me that is what the exciting part about doing what I do is. I get to live so many lives and characters, which are different from my world. I get that much more excited to do it because I get to learn about different people, different cultures and stories.”
“Through my films I have learnt to ride a chopper, I’ve been to locations like Bateswar. I am learning cricket, I have shot in a freezer and learnt how to speak in a Bihari dialect.
I love the different colours it adds to my life.”Also featuring Manoj Pahwa and Sunny Kaushal, ‘Mili’ is produced by Zee Studios and Boney Kapoor.
