In a recent interview, when Janhvi Kapoor was asked if she gets tired of being in the limelight all the time and getting scrutinised about her gym clothes, she said, “No. In fact, it is so funny because after Dhadak, there are people that come up to me and say, ‘Oh, we loved your first film’, and then there are those who are like, ‘Oh my God, I follow your gym looks all the time’. So, it is like I am known for Dhadak and I am known for my gym looks, too. It is weird but I cannot blame them. My films have not released yet. I have just been working. And I hope once they do, people will talk about my films, and associate me with them than my gym shorts.”

It has been almost two years since Kapoor entered the filmdom with Dhadak. After having no release in 2019, she is now looking forward to 2020 wherein she will be seen in some interesting projects including Kargil Girl, Roohi Afzana and Dostana 2. The actress says that she feels extremely fortunate to have gotten such great opportunities.
