Bollywood actor Janhvi Kapoor opened up about her bad experience of attending an acting school in Los Angeles, terming the decision “counter-productive”.
Janhvi Kapoor whose new movie Mili is coming out on November 4, feels it would have been much better had she stayed in India and learned about the people of her country.
In a recent interview, Janhvi talked about her time in Los Angeles, where she met people and engaged with them without identifying herself as the child of the late actor Sridevi and Boney Kapoor. When speaking with Siddharth Aalambayan of The Bombay Journey, Janhvi said, “For the first time, I engaged with a group of people who had no idea who my parents were. They were really fond of me. So, I reasoned that perhaps as a human, I have something to contribute. Not just because my parents are well-known, but generally, people will laugh at my jokes. Consequently, it gave me more confidence. I was self-sufficient. Even though I didn’t really care about being in class, my teachers still adored me.”
Janhvi Kapoor’s acting school didn’t help her in any way besides boosting her confidence. Although it slightly opened her eyes, she remarked, “I was living in luxury, so it was counterproductive. Everything in LA and America was at my fingertips, but I didn’t learn anything about my own culture or my own nation.”
“I became aware that I was stupid to go abroad to learn acting”, she said “I should have learned about our people.”
In 2018’s Dhadak, Janhvi Kapoor made her Bollywood debut. After that, she appeared in movies like Roohi, Good Luck Jerry, and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. Her sixth Hindi feature film is titled Mili. Her father Boney Kapoor is the producer.
