Janhvi Kapoor is from Venus! That’s what celebrated astro-numerologist Sanjay B Jumaani has to say about Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s elder daughter who makes her Bollywood debut in Shashank Khaitan’s romantic drama Dhadak next month. The debutante actress, as was expected – she being of the legendary actress Sridevi’s genes, hit all critics into stratosphere yesterday with her compelling presence in the trailer of Dhadak. It was presented at the PVR in Juhu by Karan Johar for Dharma Productions and Zee Studios in the presence of the film’s young stars Janhvi and Ishaan Khatter and their respective families.
While Ishaan’s first screen presence was as a child artiste in the 2005 film Vaah! Life Ho Toh Aisi and he got his first adult role in Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi’s Beyond the Clouds last year, Dhadak is Janhvi’s first brush with cinema. Jumaani says of her, “Janhvi Kapoor is my next pick among newbies in Bollywood.” He elaborated, “Born on March 6, 1997, she has her name adding to an opportune number too. Like her superstar uncle Anil Kapoor (24/12) who has the same birth number (6) as well as name number (1, the Sun, denoting Leadership).”
According to Jumaani, No. 6 (Venus, denoting Entertainment) is also what Bollywood’s longest-running film, Dilwale Dulhan Le Jayenge, adds up to. Likewise, Universal Studios, Walt Disney and Warner Bros in Hollywood and Yash Raj Films and Dharma Productions Pvt. Ltd. back home. “Most Bollywood superstars are influenced by No. 6 (Venus) or No. 2 (Moon). The first hit I had through numerology, Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai in 2000 and Golmaal Again last year both add up to No. 6 too. The Shape of Water that grabbed four Oscars this year adds up to 24 (6) again.”
Further stressing on Janhvi Kapoor’s good fortune to be a No. 6, Jumaani says that the legendary Hollywood actress Meryl Streep, who has the most number of Oscar nominations (20) by any actor in the world and has won three of them, is doubly influenced by the No. 6 as her birth date 22+6+1949 = 6 and her name like Shahrukh Khan’s adds to 42 – a dream octave of No. 6.”
