It was Varanasi calling for ‘Dhadak’ actor, Janhvi Kapoor, who reached the city on Monday evening from Lucknow where she is shooting for a biopic on Gunjan Saxena, the first female combat pilot of the Indian Air Force.
During her two-day stay in the city, the actress went for darshan at Kashi Vishwanath Temple on Tuesday. Dressed in a white chikankari suit, Janhvi sought blessings of Lord Shiva on the eve of her birthday. She also enjoyed the Banarasi lassi, chaat and paan and also shared the pics of these moments with her fans through her social media account.

Later, accompanied by her father Boney Kapoor and sister Khushi, Janhvi attended the Ganga Aarti at Dashshwamedh Ghat. The family, which arrived in a bajra, tried to keep a low profile, as they refused the special seating arrangement made for them on an elevated platform on the ghat, preferring to enjoy the aarti from the bajra (boat).

Janhvi however, participated in the Ganga pujan organised by the Ganga Seva Nidhi. Amidst chanting of the mantras, she performed the puja and even did a deep daan in river Ganga. She appeared quite engrossed during the Ganga Aarti and seemed fairly keen to know about the rituals.

Talking about her visit to the holy city, Janhvi was quoted as saying, “We drove to Varanasi after the day’s work so I could see the Ganga aarti and go to the Kashi Vishwanath temple. I wanted to visit Tirupati (in Andhra Pradesh) again, as mom (Sridevi) used to climb up to the temple every year for her birthday when she was working. I went there earlier this year and wanted to go again on my birthday, but arrangements couldn’t be made on time. I might go next week,” she informed.

When quizzed about her current project, in which she plays one of India’s first woman combat aviators to be posted in Kargil during the 1999 war, the actress said, “I have a day’s work left in Lucknow. After which I resume work next month. I feel blessed that I got the chance to work with this team.”

For her 22nd, Janhvi wishes to be on a set and in a creative environment. “There’s no better place for me in the world than a film set. My only wish is that I get the chance to do good work and make my parents (Boney Kapoor and Sridevi) proud,” Janhvi says emphatically. Next, Janhvi is to begin work on Karan Johar’s upcoming directorial ‘Takht’, which also features Kareena Kapoor Khan, Ranveer Singh, Anil Kapoor, Bhumi Pednekar and Vicky Kaushal.
