Janhvi Kapoor says she’s trying to be an actor

Actress Janhvi Kapoor who made her Bollywood debut with "Dhadak" said she does not feel she has become a star with the success of the film. She is just trying to be a good actor.

Janhvi went to  Gaiety-Galaxy, a famous sub-urban single screen theatre  along with her director Shashank Khaitan and co-actor Ishaan Khatter.The trio wanted to see how audience react to the film.

There were high expectations about Janhvi’s debut in Dharma Productions’ “Dhadak” even before its release, and now that the film is getting a positive response from the audience, it is said that Janhvi is on her way to become successful.

When asked whether she believes she has become a star with the success of “Dhadak”, she said, "I don't think I am a star as of now, I am just trying to be an actor".

When asked who gave her the best compliment, so far, for her performance, Janhvi said, "I got the best compliment from my director Shashank Khaitan who told me that he is proud of me. But more than that, I feel the kind of overwhelming response that we are getting here is the biggest compliment of all."

Unlike the the original 2016 Marathi-language film "Sairat", "Dhadak" received mixed response among critics. But the box-office collection tells a different story.

Opening with Rs 8.71 crore, it is the biggest opening at the box-office, featuring debutants.
