Wednesday 10th April 2019 07:10 EDT

Repeating outfits in the film industry has been considered a major fashion faux pas, that is until young actor Janhvi Kapoor reinvented the rules. The 'Dhadak' actress has often repeated her clothes, even hitting back at trolls who slammed her for the choice. Recently appearing on Anaita Shroff Adajania's chat show, Janhvi defended herself and shot at her trolls saying, "How can they? Itna bhi paisa nahi kamaya ki har roz naye kapde!" (I haven't earned so much money that I would wear new clothes every day)

Janhvi added that she is not affected by those on the internet finding fault in her clothes. "You can't please everyone. Especially with this. I guess you would take their criticism seriously if it was to do with your work and then work on that. But how I look outside the gym isn't really my job."

On the work front, Janhvi is shooting for 'Kargil Girl', which brings the story of IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena alive on celluloid. The pilot had helped evacuate injured soldiers from Kargil in 1999. Actor Angad Bedi will be seen as Gunjan's brother Anshuman Saxena. while Pankaj Tripathi will play their father. The film is helmed by debutant director Sharan Sharma and is being produced by Dharma Productions.
