Mumbai: Janhvi Kapoor received her big break in Dhadak, the official Hindi remake of the Marathi movie Sairat. Karan Johar has produced the film under the banner of his Dharma Productions. Since then, Janhvi has participated in a few other movies directed by Karan, which has prompted some people to call her “privileged. Janhvi addressed this privilege in a recent interview and claimed that being supported by Karan and Dharma made her a target for hate.
One of India’s largest film production companies is Dharma Productions. It was founded more than 40 years ago by the late Yash Johar, and is currently run by Karan Johar, his son. Dharma was the producer of Janhvi’s first two movies, Gunjan Saxena and Dhadak.
However, the 25-year-old actress said that she has no regrets about starting her journey under the guidance of Karan Johar in the shadow of his production house. Karan and Dharma have given me far more than I could have imagined. I consider myself lucky. If you know Karan and what that production house stands for, more than anything, it’s the creative decisions and a man’s creative vision that he sticks by. “I respect Karan too much, more than anything, because he has provided me with confidence, love, and a path to success,” she added.
Janhvi’s most recent film, Mili, was released earlier this month. She has two films in the pipeline: Bawaal and Mr & Mrs Mahi.
