Actor Janhvi Kapoor on Tuesday posted a picture of intense dance practice with her coach. The actor does an excellent job of acing tough series of dance steps but seems to lose balance towards the end but jokes about it.
She wrote: “When u lose balance, so u have to improv an overdramatic end.” Janhvi can be seen dancing to an old 1960s classic Piya Tose Naina Lage from Guide featuring Waheeda Rehman. The two dance in perfect symphony, but towards the end of the sequence, Janhvi seems to lose her balance and slides along the mirror to sit on the floor—next, she and her coach laugh.
Janhvi looks lovely in a blue and white churidar kameez. She has no makeup on and looks fresh. It is not clear which film she is practicing for, but a guess could be for her role in the upcoming Karan Johar directorial Takht. It is not clear who she portrays in the film.
Janhvi, meanwhile, has been shooting for two films simultaneously — IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena in a biopic on the Kargil War hero and RoohiAfzana. In the latter, she will reportedly be appearing in a double role. Talking about his choice of Janhvi for Roohi Afzana, producer Dinesh Vijan, in a statement, had said, “For the female lead, we needed someone who could portray two contrasting personalities with ease, and Janhvi stood out, she connected with the script. Her talent is still raw, but she is excited about being molded. The script is young, refreshing, and crazy, and she is exactly that.”
Janhvi, in a recent interview with Hindustan Times, had also said that her character in Roohi Afzana is “one of the most exciting, challenging, complicated, physically demanding, and emotionally taxing roles that I’ve had the privilege of doing.”
For Gunjan Saxena, through a significant part of last year, Janhvi had shot in Bengaluru and Lucknow. The film also stars Angad Bedi and Pankaj Mishra.
