Janhvi mentioned how happy she is to see things falling at right place for her and said, "The love has been overwhelming. More than anything else, it feels good to know that we’ve moved people with this message that we were trying to convey. I’m just happy about any form of acceptance, so I have a chance to work more and do better at what I love. To see my father, Shashank (Khaitan) and Karan (Johar) feeling so proud and happy means the world to me".

She revealed what happened the night both Khushi and Boney watched Dhadak and said, "Khushi was crying… She looked at me and said, ‘Why are you worrying?’ and then started crying again. Papa actually saw the film a month ago, and as soon as the screening was over, he went to the temple. That night he came to my room and held me tight and started crying".

It's difficult to contain such happy moments all at once and we wish Janhvi gets to experience more of these in future!
