Janhvi Kapoor, the eldest daughter of the late iconic actress Sridevi is well known for her work in several films. She gained more popularity by her amazing roles in movies like Mili, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, Dhadak and many more. But being the daughter of Sridevi she has to face the trolls on nepotism. She is often trolled as ‘Nepo Baby’ and she has been questioned for her acting skills.
Recently in an interview she shared her thoughts on being a star kid and the trolls she faces. She says that getting opportunities easily is a disadvantage for her. Also she talks about how much it hurts when she puts so much hardwork in her movies and people troll her and question her about her talent and acting skills.
Janhvi says, “I am prioritising hard work. And I’ve always been very clear about my goals in life... I want to live up to my mother’s legacy. This doesn’t come from a place of arrogance, but a desire to want to give back to my parents, as well as the audiences. While I may have gotten certain opportunities more easily, I also feel like I’m at a disadvantage. In the sense, people aren’t going to come and watch my films from a neutral perspective — they’re going to come in saying, ‘Oh, she’s gotten by easily in life; she’s privileged.’ So I have to convince them that I have something to offer; I work hard, and I value everything that I have been given. I love cinema, and I am not apologetic about it anymore, because I know I’m good at what I do... I’m just warming up.”

Later she added about what people think about her films and said, “You know, it really hurts when you’re putting in the hard work, the sweat and blood, or undergoing the mental turmoil, and some random, anonymous person on the internet goes like, ‘Acting nahi aati toh kyun karti ho, nepotism ki bacchi?' It takes all of a second to reduce you to something insignificant. On the other hand, if somebody says, ‘You were good in Mili, but you could improve your performance in another film,’ then I respect that. You get to a point where you just have to acknowledge that some people are plain sad — for the lack of a better word — and are on a quest to snatch away your happiness.”
On the work front, Janhvi was last seen in her movie ‘Mili’. She is working on her upcoming projects and will be seen in big movies ‘Dostana 2’, ‘Bawaal’ alongside Varun Dhawan, and in Mr And Mrs Mahi opposite Raj Kumar Rao.
