Opening up about the same in an interview with Grazia, Janhvi stated, “I can’t let it bog me down because I know there are people out there who would kill for this opportunity.”
She continued to add, “I also understand their feeling of being cheated a little bit. And it won’t go away until I prove myself worthy.” She also shared that from the minute she could walk and talk, she was ‘obsessed with creating alternate realities and pretending to be different people’.
After a two year gap from feature films, Janhvi is also all set to shine again on the big screen in Gunjan Saxena’s biopic. Talking about the same, she said, “I feel like Gunjan Saxena is my first film.

She also was all praise for her co-actor as she shared, “He’s a very giving actor. He loves every aspect of filmmaking and it really shows in his performance.”
