Janhvi Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan made their Bollywood debuts in 2018. While Janhvi featured with Ishaan Khatter in Dhadak, which was backed by Karan Johar, Sara was seen in Kedarnath alongside the late Sushant Singh Rajput. Sara was recently asked about Janhvi's statement on not getting respect, but getting enough film offers.

“I don’t feel under-respected at all. I think I have been given a lot of respect. I think for me, if you accept me for who I am, that’s the biggest sign of respect and touchwood, I got that very early in my career. I think from the very beginning I got respect," Sara said in an interview to Siddharth Kannan.

However, Sara Ali Khan added that maybe Janhvi Kapoor meant that she still has to prove herself as an actor. “Maybe what Janhvi could have meant, maybe as an actor one still has to prove themselves. But even then, whether it’s Kedarnath or Atrangi, I read the reviews I was given. I don’t think respect has been a problem for me," Sara said.

While speaking to Barkha Dutt recently as part of We The Women event, Janhvi Kapoor had said that she believes she has more to offer, and that she wants to prove herself. “Somewhere it comes down to the line that ‘mujhe mauke bohot mile hai, par izzat abhi tak nahi mila (I have gotten many offers but haven't gotten respect)’ and I think that’s what I am working for, in my own eyes. It takes a lot to build perception and then break it,” Janhvi had said.

Sara will next be seen in Gaslight alongside Vikrant Massey and Chitrangda Singh. The film will be released on March 31 on Disney+ Hotstar.
