Jhanvi Kapoor is busy carving out her own niche in Bollywood on her own terms with movies like Dhadak, Mili, Gunjan Saxena and many more. However, he distinct choice in films and her performances have not made the actress immune to the persistent trolling online. The actress has now spoken out about such unwarranted remarks that come her way for being a star kid and her frequent spotting outside the gym.
The Bawaal actress while speaking at the India Today Conclave mentioned now it doesn’t matter what shorts she wears at the gym as long as her work speak for her. Sharing her views on the subject of trolls Janhvi said that while opinions are fleeting, what matters is what work she’s doing and how she sees herself.
Reacting to trolls Janhvi said, "I know people are waiting to point a finger at me. If I am smiling too much one day in front of my gym, they say, 'Dekho kitni eager, kitni desperate hain.' If I am having a bad day, have got a huge pimple on my face and want to look down and just walk, start my shoot or get it over with, then it’s like 'Kitni ghamandi hain’.”
Janhvi said that is great she is getting attention from people but also pointed out in rather self-aware manner how most of it is because of the family she belongs to.

And maybe a little bit now, I’d like to think is because of the work I am doing. That’s what it comes down to it – work. It doesn’t come down to the shorts that I wore to the gym. Those aren’t the things I want to be known for,” she said.
