She expressed her shock and disappointment at discovering manipulated images of herself on websites that contained explicit or inappropriate content. She emphasised that it’s disheartening that some individuals believe these manipulated pictures to be genuine, underlining the challenges that public figures like herself face in the digital age. The daughter of producer Boney Kapoor and late actor Sridevi, told Newslaundry, “People see these manipulated images and assume they’re real. That deeply concerns me.” The actress highlighted the concerning rise in the use of fake images, particularly with the advancement of Artificial Intelligence technology. Adding that she was shocked to find morphed pictures of herself on “inappropriate, almost pornographic pages.”
Furthers, Janhvi shared that it was a strange and awkward experience to see her images like that, as a 10-year-old. She said, ‘she looked “very uncomfortable” and not “groomed” in the snaps. “My friends looked at me differently, they poked fun at me for not getting waxed. I don’t think they understood it, so they started disliking me. I didn’t understand what was happening. Many insinuated that I don’t have to work as I was famous anyway, weird taunts that I wouldn’t understand. Everyone kept asking me when I was leaving school and why I was on Yahoo. There was a lot of judgement, a lot of questioning of one’s self-worth from a very young age.”
