Actor Janhvi Kapoor says she is grateful to her Bawaal director Nitesh Tiwari for challenging her as a performer. The romantic drama, starring Varun Dhawan, marks Janhvi’s first collaboration with Dangal and Chhichhore fame director.
The 25-year-old actor said working with Tiwari has renewed her confidence in her abilities.
“Nitesh sir really spoiled me. Working with him was such a dream. He is so bright and has the wisdom of the world to offer. He is the most worthy man I have ever met. I was in awe of him as a director and as a person.
“And when a director like him believes in me to cast me in his film and when I play for him and he says the shooting is good. The faith made me believe in myself a lot more,” Janhvi said in an interview to PTI.
The actor, known for films like Dhadak, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl and Good Luck Jerry, also praised her co-star Varun Dhawan.
“I had a blast with Varun. He is a bundle of energy. And he brought out a side in me that I didn’t know existed,” Janhvi said, adding that he advised her to make “more commercial and mass movies.”
The film, produced by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, is set to hit theaters on April 7, 2023.
Janhvi Kapoor is currently waiting for the release of Mili which is a remake of the Malayalam movie Helen. The Hindi version is directed by Mathukutty Xavier, who helmed the 2019 original.
The film, produced by Boney Kapoor, is slated to release on Friday.
