In a recent interview, Janhvi says that she tried to emulate her younger sister for her role.
“I would see Khushi and draw parallels in my mind. There were things which are similar. Khushi is very sensitive but not very expressive. She is a little pricey as a person. She can be a little bit of a bully. But, there’s strength and resilience in my sister that is magnanimous but it is silent. There are only a few things that make her cry. When she loves, she loves deeply and there is a very deep sense of loyalty. That was another parallel I saw in Khushi and the character I am playing. They act like they don’t care. I think my sister is like that and I saw the similarity in the character I played onscreen.”
Janhvi will be making her acting debut alongside Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother, Ishaan Khatter. Directed by Shashank Khaitan, the film is a remake of the Marathi film Sairat. The film, produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, is slated for a July 20 release.
