Mr & Mrs Mahi: Janhvi Kapoor opens up about the challenges of shooting a kissing scene with Rajkummar Rao says, “We felt like we were dead”

Janhvi Kapoor also stated that they were very exhausted before shooting their romantic moment in Mr & Mrs Mahi.

Actress Janhvi Kapoor, who is about to film Mr & Mrs Mahi with RajKummar Rao, recently spoke about shooting personal moments with the actor. Janhvi and RajKummar, who previously appeared together in Roohi, will play husband and wife in the Sharan Sharma-directed film.

In a recent Ask Me Anything session given by the makers of Mr & Mrs Mahi for Janhvi, the actor heaped accolades on her character. She also said that they were both weary before filming their romantic kissing moment.


Janhvi responded to a fan by saying they were ‘dying inside’ after a 20-hour shift, which was when we were meant to shoot the intimate session.

“Most of mine and Raj’s romantic moments in the movie, we were completely exhausted. Like I think one of our first romantic moments was after a 20-hour shift, and both of us were feeling like we were dead. We had bad tummies, our bodies were broken, and then we had to look like we were falling in love and we were going to have our first kiss, but really, we were feeling like we were dying inside,” the actress said.

Janhvi had stated during a promotional event for the upcoming film that “During Roohi, we wanted to do more comedy, romantic and dramatic scenes with each other. We’ve got a chance to do all those things in this film. I’ve always been a fan of RajKummar and honestly, he has made my work easier. Just like our characters, Mahima and Mahendra, supported each other in the film, Rajkummar helped me exactly like that when we were shooting. He gave me strength and I believe I’ve become a better artist because of him.”

In Mr & Mrs Mahi Janhvi and RajKummar will portray cricketers, and the film will concentrate around their imperfectly perfect partnership. The film is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and will be released in theatres on May 31.
