When Karan asked Janhvi about her reaction to the constant objectification she faces, she said, “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 further 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.”

In Mr and Mrs Mahi, Janhvi plays a doctor who has a passion for cricket. She is trained by her husband (played by Rajkummar) to become a cricketer. The film is directed by Sharan Sharma, and hit theatres on May 31.
