  • During an interview with Karan Johar the actress revealed being sexualized at age of 12 years.

Janvhi Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao are currently promoting their upcoming movie Mr and Mrs Mahi which has cricket as its core subject. As a part of the promotions both the actors are giving interviews and in the process have shared insight into some of their personal and work-related experiences.

Janhvi Kapoor opened up about her first experience of getting sexualized by the media at the tender age of 12 years in an interview session with Karan Johar. The Dhadak actress said, “This is an aspect I have been navigating for a long time. The first time I was sexualised by the media I think I was 12 or 13 years old. I went for an event with Mom and dad and there were pictures of me in the media and Instagram and social media had just started to boom. And I saw my pictures of me on what seemed like a pornographic site. Boys in my school were looking at it and laughing.”

Rajkummar Rao, who was sitting beside Janhvi Kapoor was shocked to hear this and even asked, “What?” The actress continued saying, “It was like weird navigating. But I have been navigating for a long time and again I am saying this repeatedly because I’m very apologetic about where I come from and I think I need to get over that. “

Janhvi has been struggling to give a big hit ever since she made her debut in Bollywood alongside Ishaan Khatter. Despite working in good movies, the actress is yet to make a mark in the B-town and instead is often compared with newcomers like Rashmika Mandanna and Triptii Dimri who are surging ahead of her despite having no connections in the film industry.

Mr and Mrs Mahi also stars Rajkummar Rao in the lead who is getting very good reviews for Shrikanth. The flick is also doing decent business and once again has proved that Rao is a highly accomplished actor.
