Janhvi Kapoor, Bollywood actor, has completed filming for Mili with the support of her father Boney Kapoor.
Mathukutty Xavier directed the survival thriller. It is a remake of Helen, a 2019 Malayalam movie. Xavier also helmed that original movie.
On Friday night, the actor aged 24 took to social media to share her feelings about the shoot and the experience working with her father.
It’s over! #Milli. My first film with Papa, whom I have only heard stories about all my life as a producer. It feels great to be able to say this after having worked with you. “I finally understand what people mean when they say that you give your heart and soul for every film you take up,” she shared on Instagram, along with several candid photos from the film’s shoot.
According to Janhvi, working with her father wasn’t the only reason that this film is special to her. Janhvi credited her director and co-actor-screenwriter Noble Babu Thomas, who had played the boyfriend of actor Anna Ben’s character in the National Award-winning movie, for their guidance and reinforcing her belief in hard work.
“It was an inspiring experience to work with @mathukuttyxavier sir, whose passion for cinema and focus has been so strong. We are grateful to @noblebabuthomas and Matthew for their patience and guidance.
“For reaffirming my belief that, no matter how difficult the journey may be, if you work hard enough and honestly enough, it can still lead to magic. It’s well worth it. I hope you guys feel the exact same when you watch the film. Papa, I’m proud of you. She added, “Thank you for this journey.”
Mili also stars Sunny Kaushal and Manoj Pahwa.
