Roohi promotions: Janhvi Kapoor goes backless and bold in Mumbai summers
Ghost Stories actor Janhvi Kapoor has been making waves for her dance in the newest song Panghat from her upcoming movie -horror comedy Roohi. The young actor has been keeping busy with the promotions of the movie, which also stars Rajkummar Rao and Varun Sharma, and has been donning some stunning, brightly coloured outfits for the same. Most recently, the Gunjan Saxena actor wore a backless, metallic silver top with flared pink pants, with her hair parted in the middle, and fastened into a ponytail. Janhvi sported minimal, dewy make-up, accentuating her gorgeous doe-like eyes with a dramatic purple eyeliner. She accessorized her look with hoops in her ears and crystal and colourful enamel rings stacked on her fingers. We have to say, given how hot Mumbai is getting these days, her outfit is on point for summers in the City that Never Sleeps.
Janhavi took to her Instagram to show off her cute outfit and captioned it, "Palat" referencing the popular Shah Rukh Khan dialogue that is also seen in the trailer of Roohi. Sister Khushi Kapoor commented on her sister's photos, "Thank god", while cousin and Bollywood's original fashionista Sonam Kapoor Ahuja approved, writing, "I love it... hot." Step sister Anshula Kapoor also commented with a peach and fire emoji. Janhvi's post received over 6.5 lakh likes.
The cute, metallic silver top worn by Janhvi is from the London based fashion brand Poster Girl and has been seen on celebrities including Kylie Jenner, Dua Lipa, Selena Gomez, Winnie Harlow and Rita Ora among others. The Bambi top from the brand is made from micro metal-mesh, has a cowl drape neckline and 'high-octane shine'. It is priced on the site at £155, which is approximately ₹16,000.
In a recent interview with PTI, the Dhadak actor spoke about the scrutiny that comes with being a star kid, saying "Scrutiny is part of the job, there's little that can be done about it. I have signed up for it. You're giving yourself to the people, asking for their love. But they're not obligated to love you, you've to give them reasons to." She added, "There's no self-pity or shame in that. I need to keep working to win everyone over. Sure, it's seldom that people win over everyone but I have aspirations to reach that level. I am working hard and I hope I do get there."
Directed by Hardik Mehta, the horror comedy was first titled Rooh Afza and then Roohi Afzana, before the final title, Roohi was settled on. This is the first time Janhvi will be seen in a film from this genre. The film is being produced by Dinesh Vijan and Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and will release on March 11, 2021. Apart from this, Janhvi Kapoor will be seen in Dostana 2 alongside Kartik Aaryan and Lakshya.
