New Delhi: Actress Janhvi Kapoor recently visited Delhi to promote her upcoming film, Mr. & Mrs. Mahi, alongside co-star Rajkummar Rao. The highly-anticipated movie is scheduled for a theatrical release on May 31, 2024. In a candid interaction, Kapoor spoke about her experience during the shoot and her cherished moments in Delhi.

“Delhi always feels like home,” Janhvi shared with a sense of nostalgia. “The last time I was here, I was promoting Dhadak.” She further added, “Rajkummar is shooting for another movie in Varanasi, which is why he couldn’t join me for the promotions.”

Discussing the rigorous preparation for her role, Janhvi revealed, “I was around 8-9 kgs heavier before starting this project. To convincingly portray a cricketer, I had to follow a strict fitness regime. It was certainly challenging but equally rewarding. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”

When asked about her favorite cricketer, Janhvi was quick to respond: “Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He has always been my favorite.”

Mr. & Mrs. Mahi, directed by Sharan Sharma and written by Sharma and Nikhil Mehrotra, is one of the most talked-about films of the year. The trailer, which was released a few days ago, has already generated significant excitement among cinema-goers. The film stars Janhvi Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao as the lead couple, showcasing a story that intertwines personal and professional aspirations.

The film has a robust production team behind it. Produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar, Apoorva Mehta, and Zee Studios, and presented by Zee Studios and Dharma Productions, the project promises to deliver exceptional storytelling and visual appeal.

Recalling more about her journey, Janhvi mentioned how the capital city, with its vibrant culture and energy, always left a lasting impression on her. “Every corner of this city has a story. Each visit brings back memories and creates new ones,” she said, smiling.

She also elaborated on the intensity and preparation needed for her role. “Transforming into a cricketer isn’t just about physical fitness. It required understanding the nuances of the game, the stance, the body language.” Janhvi expressed gratitude towards the trainers and experts who guided her through this transformation. “Their expertise and encouragement made the process smoother,” she said.

There were days I doubted myself, but the support from the team kept me going.” Reflecting on the shoot, she shared some light-hearted moments. “We had our share of fun too.
