Actor Janhvi Kapoor, who made her Bollywood debut with Dhadak, has said she does not feel she has become a star with the success of the film but she is just trying to be an actor.

Janhvi Kapoor, along with her co-actor Ishaan Khatter and director Shashank Khaitan were present , on Saturday with the media at Gaiety-Galaxy at a famous sub-urban single screen theatre — to know the audience’s reaction on the film.

A lot of buzz was generated with her debut in Dharma Productions Dhadak even before its release and now that the film is getting a positive response from the audience, it is said that Janhvi Kapoor is all set to do well in the film industry.

When Janhvi was asked whether she believes she has become a star with the success of Dhadak, she said, “I don’t think I am a star as of now, I am just trying to be an actor.”

When asked who gave her the best compliment so far for her performance, she said, “I got the best compliment from my director Shashank Khaitan when he told me that he is proud of me. But more than that, I feel the kind of overwhelming response that we are getting here is the biggest compliment for all of us.”

Dhadak was received with mixed reviews among critics unlike the original 2016 Marathi-language film Sairat, but the box-office collection tells a different story.

After experiencing an overwhelming response and beating Dharma Productions Student of the Year which collected Rs 8 crore on its first day, Khaitan said, “I was confident about the film.”

“Till now, many people have watched the film. These two kids (Ishaan and Janhvi) have done a fantastic job. We saw such kind of iconic love story after so many days.”

“We had faith in the kind of honesty and hard work we made this film with. We all would like to thank Karan Johar for believing in all of us,” Khaitan shared.
