Janhvi Kapoor got her big break in Dhadak, the official Hindi adaptation of Marathi blockbuster Sairat. The film was produced by Karan Johar and his banner Dharma Productions. Since then, Janhvi has appeared in a few other films produced by Karan, which has led many to criticise her for being privileged. In a recent interview, Janhvi addressed that privilege and said that being launched by Karan and Dharma has made her a target for hat
Dharma Productions is one of the biggest film production houses in India. It was set up over 40 years ago by the late Yash Johar and is currently run by karan Johar, his son. The first two films Janhvi did–Dhadak, Gunjan Saxena–were all produced by Dharma. Many said that Janhvi–being the daughter of Sridevi and Boney Kapoor–had it easy as not many newcomers are given so many films by such a big production house.
In a recent interview with Bollywood Life, Janhvi was asked if she does feel she has become an easy target for trolling due to her association with Dharma. She responded, “I think it comes with the fact that Dharma is such an iconic production house. I have realised whatever people say, the kind of curiosity and reach that Dharma has and the kind of interest it piques in audiences, may be unparalleled. Yeah, it has added a certain amount of pressure and also made me a target that is easy to hate.”
