Janhvi Kapoor on Revealing Clothing and Sexualization Since Age 12-13: ‘I Found Pictures of Myself on What Appears to Be a Pornographic Website’ 12: Bollywood News – Bollywood Hungama





Janhvi Kapoor has carved a niche for herself with her impressive performances. However, her journey has not been without challenges and controversies, particularly regarding her clothing choices and the objectification she has faced since her youth. As she prepares for the release of her highly anticipated film Mister. & Woman. WorkKapoor discussed these issues openly in a recent interview with Karan Johar.

Janhvi Kapoor on revealing clothing and sexualization since age 12-13: “I found pictures of myself on what appeared to be a pornographic website.”

Janhvi Kapoor’s revelations about objectification by the media came as a shock to many. In her conversation with Johar, she shared a distressing memory from her early teens. “This is an aspect that I have been concerned with for a long time. I think the first time I felt sexualized by the media was when I was 12 or 13 years old. I was at an event with my mom and dad and there were pictures of me in the media. I think Instagram or social media had just started to boom and I found pictures of myself on what appeared to be a pornographic site. And the boys at my school looked at it and laughed. Yeah, it was just a very strange thing to navigate.”

She added: “But I’ve been navigating it for a long time. And I keep repeating this because I think I’m very apologetic about where I come from and I need to get over it. But I’m sure other people deal with it in a much different sense, in a much more real and truly frightening sense. I still think the way I explain it and my experiences with it are very privileged. But it was complicated.”

Janhvi Kapoor continued, “I think there is still a kind of contradiction in the way I am presented in the media. Because on the one hand, I like to dress a certain way, and I grew up in a household where I don’t have to apologize for it. I don’t feel judged by it. But I also understand that when a girl dresses in a way that makes it seem like she’s comfortable with her sexuality, it creates a feeling of a kind of character assassination. So I don’t know; I’m still navigating it. I don’t know how I feel about this. Of course I don’t want to be perceived by the media in a certain way. I want to be taken seriously, but it goes against my core values ​​as a feminist to also feel like people think I’m a certain type of girl when I wear this.”

Janhvi Kapoor is also gearing up for the release of Mister. & Woman. Work, where she plays the lead opposite Rajkummar Rao. Directed by Sharan Sharma, the film tells the story of Mahi and Mahima, a married couple whose lives are intertwined with the sport of cricket. Mahi’s dream of becoming a cricketer is thwarted, resulting in him living vicariously through his wife Mahima, who shares his passion for the game.

Mister. & Woman. Work is presented by Zee Studios and Dharma Productions and produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar, Apoorva Mehta and Zee Studios, making for a powerhouse of talent in front of and behind the camera.

Mister. & Woman. Work is scheduled to hit theaters on May 31, 2024.
