Bollywood actress Janhvi Kapoor, who comes from a privileged background, has often been criticized for her looks and acting skills. However, the young starlet doesn’t let the negativity affect her. Speaking at the India Today Conclave 2023, Kapoor revealed that she is aware of the constant scrutiny that comes with being in the limelight.
“People are waiting to point a finger at me,” she said. “If I am smiling too much one day in front of the gym or paps have got it, they say ‘dekho kitni eager, kitni desperate hain’. I am having a bad day and I am having a huge pimple on my face and I look down and just walk, start my shoot or get over it, then it’s like ‘kitni ghamandi hain’.”
Despite the negative comments, Kapoor believes that her work will speak for itself. “You have to learn that in the papers today, in the trash tomorrow – it really doesn’t matter. Opinions don’t last, what lasts is your work, what you think of yourself. All these things are not tangible,” she said.
Kapoor’s words serve as a reminder that being in the public eye can come with its challenges, but it’s important to not let the opinions of others affect one’s self-worth. In an industry where image is everything, it’s refreshing to see a young actress focused on her work and not succumbing to the pressure of societal standards.
