Janhvi Kapoor

Janhvi Kapoor, set to enthrall audiences with her upcoming film "Mr & Mrs Mahi" alongside Rajkummar Rao, has been making headlines even before the movie's release. During a recent promotional event, she candidly shared the challenges she faced while filming, including sustaining injuries such as dislocating both her shoulders. Despite the obstacles, Kapoor persevered, crediting her directors and coaches for their unwavering support.

Opening up about her intensive two-year preparation for the film, Kapoor highlighted the dedication of director Sharan Sharma, who aimed for authenticity in every aspect of the production. She emphasized his commitment to portraying cricket realistically, without resorting to shortcuts like VFX or incomplete techniques. 

She said, Mili ke time meine training shuru ki thi. 2 saal lag gaye. Humare nirdeshak kaaafi purest or imandari se kaam karte hai. Wo chahte the ki mein puri tarah se cricketer ban jau. Wo kisi tarah ki cheating nai karna chahte the ki VFX mein daal denge ya adha adhura kaam ho. Puri tarah se chahte the ki mein iss duniya mein mil jau aur judd jau. (During Mili, I began training. It took two years. Our director works with utmost purity and honesty. He wanted me to become a complete cricketer. He didn't want any kind of cheating, like using VFX or incomplete work. He wanted me to succeed and be immersed in this world completely).

Later Janhvi said, “Kaafi injuries bhi hue, mere dono shoulders dislocate hogaye. Lekin pura credit inko jata hai aur mere dono coaches ko jaata hai - Abhishek Nayar and Vikrant sir. Inn dono ne bohot mehnat ki hai. Harr mod mein mujhe lagta tha ki give up karna chahiye, nai ho ra hai. Meri body give up kar ri thi. Par unse mujhe bohot himmat milti thi.” (I faced many injuries; both my shoulders were dislocated. But all the credit goes to them and to my two coaches - Abhishek Nair and Vikrant sir. Both of them have worked very hard. At every turn, I felt like giving up, like it's not happening. My body was giving up. But they gave me a lot of courage).

Director Sharan Sharma previously shared glimpses of Kapoor's cricket training journey, illustrating her transformation from a novice to a proficient cricketer. Through dedication and hard work, Kapoor mastered the sport, embodying the spirit of her character—a doctor turned passionate cricketer inspired by her husband, portrayed by Rajkummar Rao.
