Jahnvi Kapoor has a switch over her onscreen and real life avatar. She is known for doing girl-next-door roles from small town however in reality the actor prefers glamour and style. In an interview during her film promotions, she mentioned that social media for her is to have fun and pay her EMIs off.
Speaking to Galatta Plus, Janhvi said, “I have been told things like these. ‘The kind of films that you are doing are of a certain beat and your social media presence is quite a contradiction. It will make people harder to buy as those characters if they keep seeing you in this get up’. I am trying to protect myself from being calculative like that. It might throw people off to see me in a Manish Malhotra saree and then in a kurta in a film. But that is my job, my art. I feel very deeply about it and I want to be as real and authentic about it as possible. But I’m not that person in real life. That’s the point of being an actor.”
She further elucidated, “I don’t want to take it so seriously. My social media is for me to have fun. Hopefully if I look cute and five extra people like my pictures, I’ll get another brand and I’ll be able to pay for my EMIs with more ease than I was before.”
