The Dhadak actress has been garnering overwhelming response from all corners. She has left everyone in awe of her spooky act in Ghost Stories. Tweeps on Twitter are going gaga over her performance in the series, showering praises on the actress for pulling off her character so immaculately. Many even hailing her segment as the best amongst all the four segments in Ghost Stories. Take a look at some tweets!
1) Zoya’s one is scary at first but then kinda predictable. Jahanvi was good actually. She has good screen presence.
2) Anurag’s one, I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS please someone answer them. Not scary but VERY CREEPY probably the creepiest thing I’ve ever watched. #GhostStories

Talking about her experience of working with Zoya Akhtar, Janhvi had earlier said in an interview, “It was really interesting to be a part of the film. However, the biggest takeaway for me was that I was getting to work with Zoya. All my energies and focus were towards that. It is a new space and genre for me.”
On the film front, the actress is looking forward to the release of her next Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. As the title aptly suggests, the film is a biopic based on the life of IAF officer Gunjan Saxena who flew into a combat zone during the Kargil war in 1999 and saved several wounded soldiers. Produced by Karan Johar, the movie is scheduled to release on 13th March, 2020.
Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl will be shortly followed by Maddock Films’ horror-comedy Roohi-Afza. Co-starring Rajkummar Rao, the film will be entering theatres on 17th April, 2020. Janhvi Kapoor will clap off 2020 with Dostana 2, a sequel to Dharma Productions’ much-loved comic-caper Dostana (2008). It also features Kartik Aaryan and debutant Lakshya in lead roles.
