Janhvi Kapoor opened up about her time at an acting school in Los Angeles, admitting she didn't gain any knowledge from the experience.

During an exclusive interview with The Week, Janhvi, known for her role in Bawaal film, talked about the one thing that excited her.

The 26-year-old actress told, "I learnt nothing there, the thrill of moving to California was in the anonymity it gave me. I was not someone’s daughter for once, and that was so refreshing."

"But the school’s format was so rooted in Hollywood and approaching its casting agents. I actually realized I am not a method actor", she added.

Janhvi further said, “I wish I could have used that time getting to know my people and my country and my language a little better because I am telling the stories of my people, not of them I just wish I did more things that would make me relate to my people and I did."

"Once I started shooting for Dhadak, I made a 180 and I realised that the only thing that matters is, I want to tell stories of my country, I want to know the people of my country," she added.

Janhvi continued, "I want to be able to speak to them, I want to be able to think like them, feel like them and sitting in LA, going to Malibu on the weekend isn’t going to cut it. It just makes you so detached and jaded.”
