Janhvi says, “I think I’m a very hardworking and sincere actor. If nothing else, I try to be as honest an actor as possible. Sometimes I feel like, if I’m not feeling completely exhausted, drained and broken after a schedule then maybe I haven’t given it my everything.”

She continues, “I think that’s something I’m learning from the film I’m doing right now. We had one schedule which, I think, broke me physically and mentally. And the schedule that I’m on right now feels like a holiday.”

Kapoor talks about her process saying, “I feel like I need to inflict some amount of anxiety on myself to feel like I’ve delivered which isn’t always necessary I think.”
