Janhvi Kapoor Felt Inappropriately Treated By Media When She Was 12-13 Years Old; Says She Was ‘Sexualized’

Recently actor Janhvi Kapoor revealed about the trolls and character assassinated which she had to go through as a female actor in the industry.

Janhvi Kapoor is all set for her upcoming film Mr and Mrs Mahi. In the sports drama her co-actor is Rajkumar Rao. The film is produced by Karan Johar. Janhvi recently opened up about being ‘sexualized’ when she was young. Her conversation has been dropped on the official YouTube channel of Dharma Productions.

When Janhvi was asked by Karan about her reaction to the objectification she faced. The actor replied, “I feel like this is also an aspect that I have been navigating for a long time. I think the first time I felt sexualized by the media was when I was 12-13 years old. I went for an event with mom and dad. There were pictures of me in the media and social media had just started. I found pictures of me in what seemed like a pornographic site, and boys in my school were like looking at it and laughing.”

She continued, “It is a very weird thing to navigate and I have been navigating it for a very long time. I think I am very apologetic about where I come from and I need to get over that. I am sure other people deal with it in a much more different sense. I still think the way I am explaining it and my experiences of it are very privileged. But it was complicated… There is a sort of character assassination that a girl faces when she dresses in a way that makes it seem like she is comfortable with her sexuality.”

Janhvi Kapoor in her upcoming movie plays the role of a doctor who is a big fan of cricket. She has bee trained by her husband which is played by Rajkumar to become a cricketer. The film is helmed by Sharan Sharma. The film is to hit the theaters on May 31.
