Janhvi Kapoor is stepping into the big bad world of Bollywood with Shashank Khaitan's Dhadak, come July 20.

In the film, 21-year-old Janhvi plays Parthavi opposite Ishaan Khatter, who will be seen as Madhukar in this tale of two star-cross'd lovers. Dhadak is a remake of 2016 Marathi hit Sairat, directed by Nagraj Manjule.

Ahead of her big-screen debut, India Today Television's Sushant Mehta caught up with Janhvi Kapoor.

During the trailer launch of Dhadak, people witnessed an emotional moment between Sridevi and Boney Kapoor's daughters, Janhvi and Khushi. Khushi broke down on the stage, with Janhvi wiping her tears.

"Both of us were in shock. In my entire life, I've probably seen her crying only two or three times. So we just hugged each other, and she said, 'I don't know why I am crying'. It was a very special moment. Maybe I have done something very, very wrong and that's why she was crying!" said the 21-year-old actress.

When asked what qualities Janhvi can imbibe from her mother, the late Sridevi, she said, "My mom always used to say that in order to be a good actor, you need to be a good person. Because the camera is very smart. If you're not a good person, if you're fake, it shows. If your heart is not clean, it is visible."

On the criticism that often accompanies stardom, Janhvi said that it affected her, "But up until this point it was like, if they're going to criticise me for how I look while coming out of the gym, I don't really care. But all of a sudden, now I'm a little more nervous because I am supposed to be good at this, right? This is what I've wanted to do. I want people to love me."

"The only thing that you can do is work hard and give it your all and hope that that's enough. But usually, you never know. I think that the only thing I'm trying to do is honest work. I hope that one day I will deserve people's love," she continued.

"You're criticised even for being 'proper'. I don't think it's anything that I have any right to complain about. It is flattering that people take that kind of time out of their day to give me that kind of attention. I hope one day I do something to deserve it," the actress said.
