Janhvi Kapoor reflects on hypothetical debate between Mahatma Gandhi and BR Ambedkar

en Bollywood News Janhvi Kapoor reflects on hypothetical debate between Mahatma Gandhi and BR Ambedkar

Actress shares her views on the evolution of their ideologies during promotions for upcoming film Mr & Mrs Mahi.

In a recent interview with The Lallantop, Janhvi Kapoor expressed her thoughts on a hypothetical debate between Mahatma Gandhi and BR Ambedkar, saying, “I think it would be very interesting to watch a debate between Ambedkar and Gandhi.” Kapoor elaborated, “Just a debate between what they stand for and how their views kept changing over time on any one particular topic or how they influenced each other. They’ve both helped our society immensely, so what they feel about each other would be an interesting discourse.” She highlighted the distinct evolution of Gandhi’s views in contrast to Ambedkar’s steadfast stance, noting, “Ambedkar was still very stern and clear from the start what his stand was, but I think Gandhi’s view kept evolving as he got more and more exposed to the rampant caste-based discrimination in our society.”

Currently busy with the promotions of her upcoming film Mr & Mrs Mahi, Kapoor shared insights into her intense preparation for the role. She recounted the challenge posed by her initial physical condition, saying, “When I started prepping for the film – during Mili promotions – I was 8-9 kilos heavier. Sharan was very stressed. He said, ‘You don’t look like a cricketer and if you really want to do this film, you need to lose weight and need to start training in cricket.’” Her coach, Abhishek Nayar, emphasized the rigor of her training, stating, “Jis tarah ki training aapke saath ki gayi hi, humare IPL players ke saath bhi nahi ki jaati – itna intense tha.”

The makers have released a behind-the-scenes clip showcasing Kapoor's transformation and rigorous training process. The actress, who had no prior experience in cricket, practiced diligently with Kolkata Knight Riders players and undertook a demanding training regimen. Despite suffering injuries, including broken ligaments in both shoulders, Kapoor persevered. Director Sharan Sharma revealed that Janhvi has multidirectional instability (MDI), a condition more favorable for dancers than cricketers, which added to the challenge of her preparation.

Mr & Mrs Mahi, set to be released on May 31, promises to be an exciting venture, with Kapoor playing the role of a cricketer. The film’s trailer has generated significant buzz, and the journey behind Janhvi’s preparation underscores her dedication to the craft. The actress’s reflections on historical debates and her commitment to embodying her character highlight her multifaceted approach to both art and thought.
