It is no secret that Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter share a fantastic camaraderie. In fact, their fondness for each other has sparked romance rumours, although they maintain that they are just good friends.

Recently, during the season finale of a chat show hosted by Anaita Shroff Adajania, Ishaan was asked the one thing he cannot stand about Janhvi. “She is a mastikhor. She knows which buttons to press. It’s irritating because sometimes, she will go on a tangent when it’s not required and she will stay on it,” he said, adding that she “fights when she doesn’t want to fight”.

Though Janhvi and Ishaan had met once or twice “fleetingly” before signing Shashank Khaitan’s Dhadak, it was only during the prep that they bonded, especially over films. “I met her once or twice fleetingly, and I had an exchange with her on social media. But we met first with the intent of meeting for the film,” he said.

“The first time we met, we saw La La Land. Because she had not seen it and I had seen it five times. It’s such a great film and she hadn’t seen it, and I was like ugh. We started our exchange with films. By the time we got on set, we were bum chums,” he added.

On the work front, Janhvi has been busy shooting for debutant director Sharan Sharma’s Kargil Girl, which brings the story of IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena alive on celluloid. Ishaan, meanwhile, is yet to announce his next film after Dhadak.
