Mumbai: The Dhadak actress Janhvi Kapoor has received immense love from her fans with her debut film.

Not someone new to public acknowledgement, the actress feels that fame is important for all the actors but in her case, acting is more important.

“Fame matters a lot to each and every actor but it’s important for me to understand that the fact that I have got (the fame) is because of my family,” says Janhvi and adds, “After my first film, I got a lot of love and I am grateful to that. I have seen fame from childhood. So, for me, I have to work hard and acting is more important.”

Meanwhile, the actress also praised Madhuri Dixit after watching the Kalank trailer. It is to be noted that Janhvi’s mother Sridevi was supposed to be part of Kalank. Madhuri Dixit had also mentioned how emotionally tough it was for her to play a role which was meant to be essayed by the late Sridevi.

Praising Madhuri, Janhvi says, “Who am I to welcome her but as an audience, I am so excited for this film. I am really excited about Kalank.”

“She is such a great performer and we are fortunate that we are able to see her work on screen and learn from her. I only hope we get to see more work of Madhuri,” she adds.

On the work front, Janhvi is working on the biopic of Gunjan Saxena, the first woman IAF pilot who evacuated injured soldiers from Kargil in 1999.
