Janhvi Kapoor, daughter of Sridevi and Boney Kapoor who marked her debut with Shashank Khaitan’s ‘Dhadak’ is rumoured to be dating Akshat Ranjan. Although, nothing specific is known about the alleged relationship between them. Akshat has always been very close to Janhvi and her family and is often seen with them at dinner outings, movie screenings, family functions. They have known each other for quite some time now, their relationship eventually progressed and the rumours say that Akshat and Janhvi are dating. Akshat earlier shared a collage of crazy pictures with Janhvi and captioned it, ‘here’s to another year with you #myeverything.’ Akshat was earlier spotted at the special screening of Gauri Shinde’s ‘Dear Zindagi’ with Janhvi, Sridevi and Boney Kapoor in the same car in Mumbai. His public appearance with the family gave rise to the guesswork that the Kapoor family has agreed to the relationship. After the demise of Sridevi, Janhvi celebrated her birthday on a low note. Wishing per on a special day, Akshat posted a picture with her on Instagram to which Janhvi replied ‘ILY’. This reply just went on to substantiate the guesswork. The pictures and captions of Janhvi and Akshat are enough to tell the tale of their relationship.
Akshat is also a close friend of Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda. Navya and Akshat studied in London together, that’s how they know each other. There are rumours that Akshat got upset with Janhvi’s proximity and linkup to her co-star Ishaan Khattar. While Janhvi was preparing for her debut film ‘Dhadak’ her rumoured boyfriend was studying at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts. After the release of ‘Dhadak’, we saw Janhvi and Ishaan pulling each other’s legs during media interactions, interviews and film promotions and their off-screen chemistry was enough to spark the rumour of their relationship. Since then the rumours of their relationship were hitting the headlines. But the two never gave any confirmation to it and stated to be good friends. Now according to one of the reports of Pinkvilla Janhvi has broken all the ties with Ishaan and has been avoiding him. Ishaan made numerous efforts to mend things with her, but she has been firm on her decision. According to sources, Janhvi’s recent picture with presently rumoured boyfriend, Akshat Ranjan has left Ishaan restless. Janhvi has also changed her gym to avoid Ishaan while he continues to make attempts to fix things. On Neha Dhupia’s chat show, Ishaan confessed that he has done some crazy things for Janhvi on her request. He talked about the bond he shared with her t that time and also took her name as a better actor then Sara Ali Khan. While working in a film they got a lot of time to spend together and in the process became aware of each other’s habits.
In an earlier interview, Sridevi talked about Janhvi Kapoor’s marriage, she said, ‘Janhvi wanted to do the film and initially, I wasn’t in favour. I don’t think it’s a bad industry. I am a creation of this world, but, as a parent, it would give me a greater joy to see her married. But her happiness matters more, and if she does well as an actress, I will be a proud mother.’ Sridevi also said, ’It’s very important to me that young girls understand that the end goal of their life is not to have babies and they have every right to make something of themselves. What I meant to say initially as that I would prefer if my daughters didn’t lead the kind of hectic life that comes with this business and instead, have a relatively stable and relaxing life. But they are ambitious, and I have come to respect that as every parent should, and that respect overshadows my protective parental instincts now.’ She said her daughters are her priorities, she remarked, ‘nothing is more important than your children.’
Janhvi talked about her mother, late Sridevi Ji’s reaction on her dating and boyfriends. She said, “Mom and dad were very dramatic about it, they said ‘if you like someone come to us we will get you guys married.’ And I am like what? You know we don’t need to marry every guy we like. Like we can be chill also.” And Sridevi would be like, ‘like chill, what does chill mean.’ On November 28, 2019, Janhvi shared a picture on her Instagram story and the caption is what grabbed our attention. In the picture she was seen spending a great time with rumoured boyfriend Akshat, she was posing with him and wrote, ‘Home’. But then in an interview, Janhvi talked about the rumour and said, ‘the rumour mongers have also said that I am dating my childhood friend Akshat, who is so scared to hang out with me now as he is too scared that we will be papped together. So that day, he came home for dad’s birthday and there were paps downstairs at Arjun Bhaiya’s house, and he was hiding in a khopcha, put on a hoodie and all, and left. I was like, it’s okay. Whether Akshat and Janhvi are dating or not is still a mystery, but their friendship is one of a kind.
