Actor Janhvi Kapoor, who routinely shares pictures of her extended family, put up a picture of her father, filmmaker Boney Kapoor, in his new avatar. Boney, who has always been on the heavy side, has lost a lot of weight.

Sharing the picture, Janhvi mentioned that her dad has lost 12 kgs. She wrote: “Papa lost 12 kgs!!! Slim trim and healthy so proud!!!! #finally.” It is not clear where the picture has been clicked but, in it, Boney can be seen in a Jodhpuri suit, with a perfectly matching red pocket square. He certainly looks happy.

Janhvi has been busy shooting for her next, the Gunjan Saxena biopic. She recently returned from her shooting schedule in Lucknow. Interestingly, her cousin Shanaya, daughter of actor Sanjay Kapoor, is working on the film as an assistant director.

Janhvi recently revealed that actor Pankaj Tripathi, who plays her father in the biopic, probably thinks she is a creep. Speaking to Anaita Shroff Adajania on an episode of Voot’s Feet up with the Stars, Janhvi narrated an incident where Pankaj drew similarities between acting and cooking mutton. Joining the conversation, Janhvi was quoted by IANS as saying: “Sir, par aap toh ice cream ho, aap sabko pasand ho (You are like an ice cream. Everyone likes you). Right after I said it, he gave me a look.”
