Janhvi Kapoor is just days away from her debut, Dhadak, hitting the big screen. The actor, who is starring opposite Ishaan Khatter in Shashank Khaitan’s Sairat remake, recently revealed how she was embarrassed in front of the Wanted crew by Salman Khan.
Janhvi Kapoor said in an interview to Deccan Chronicle, “Once when I visited the sets of Wanted, Prabhudeva was rehearsing a dance sequence with Salman Khan and Katrina. I was around 10 or 12 then. I crept into the room where the dancing was taking place. I was so fond of dancing that I couldn’t resist myself. I stood in the corner, swaying to the beats of the song.”
It was then that Salman spotted her. “I was busy enjoying dancing and didn’t realise Salman had spotted me. He called me and asked me to dance in the middle of the room. I went ahead and danced happily, while the others stood around me, Janhvi said. She went on to say that . Back then I thought they were all appreciating my moves but when I think about it today, I’m so embarrassed!” The young star also says, “God knows what they would have been thinking!”
Janhvi’s love for dancing extends to Bollywood too. She has said in the past that acting is the only thing she knows. She recently revealed how she was obsessed with Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone’s Om Shanti Om. “I always wanted to see myself on screen. I remember I would watch random movies and was obsessed with ‘Om Shanti Om’. I would enact every scene from the film and force Khushi to be Shah Rukh Khan and I’d be Deepika, doing that typical hand wave,” told Janhvi.
