Janhvi Kapoor feels you can’t question someone’s character based on what they are wearing | Hindi Movie News

Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor might just be one film old but she has already become one of the most sought-after actresses we have in Bollywood. In a recent interview with a news portal, the young actress recently opened up about casual sexism in Bollywood.

Talking about the same, she reportedly said that a lot of times in meetings and in narrations, when they have a male co-actor present, the director or the writer while narrating the scene makes more eye-contact with the guy than with the female actor. She added that she felt that was maybe because he has a longer role or maybe the scene is like that. However, she stated that she realized that maybe it’s just some sort of subliminal conditioning that is making them do that.

Elaborating more, she added that there is a lot of attention that is paid to how they look and how they are presented. They are also very quickly judged by their appearance and what they are wearing. Even on social media sometimes when she goes through the comments, the kind of comments a girl gets for wearing what she wants to wear is extreme. According to her, you can’t question someone’s character based on what they are wearing.

She also went to say that people feel that it might be okay to say a few things that might be demeaning. According to her, not so much for a gut but as a woman, if you are not meeting a certain standard then everyone has the right to say something.

On the work front, she will next be seen in ‘Dostana 2’ alongside Kartik Aaryan and Lakshya.
