During the interview, Janhvi Kapoor opened up about her box office failures. She said, "My last theatrical hit was my debut film Dhadak, Roohi came out in the pandemic but since we opened up with 50% capacity, it was a success for the times we were living in. But I don’t count it as a success. Mili didn’t do well the box office. Once I will get that numerical validation, then I start to believe that I am doing well."

She said, "The constant hunger of doing varied roles justifies for me to be an actor. Through my work, I learned to fly a helicopter, I fully learned how to play cricket as a sport, I spent 21 days in a freezer with a rat. I even spent so many days in Patiala and seen the interiors of my country in Punjab and Udaipur for that matter. I feel lucky to have gotten so much exposure. I could speak more Telugu than as a child because of the film I am doing. That’s where the fuel comes from I guess."


Meanwhile, Mr and Mrs Mahi will release in theatres on May 31.
