True Colours
Unexpected hues and playful drapes transform Janhvi Kapoor into a new-age cocktail bride

The playlist for our shoot with Janhvi Kapoor has been chosen by the actor herself. She keeps the mood upbeat with tracks ranging from the soundtrack of classic Bollywood films like Saathiya and Bombay to Post Malone and Swae Lee’s pop single Sunflower, and Punjabi hits such as Sakhiyaan. “Music makes me feel good about myself,” says the young actor as she changes from her shoot wardrobe of dramatic, couture lehengas and gowns by designers Shantanu and Nikhil into a short, summery floral dress and slippers.

The star of Dhadak has multiple projects in the works—a Zoya Akhtar-directed short film for Netflix, RoohiAfza alongside Rajkumar Rao, and the Karan Johar-produced Dostana 2. She took some time out of her schedule to talk to Brides Today about the everlasting love between her parents, Boney Kapoor and the late Sridevi, and the intimate wedding she imagines for herself in the temple town of Tirupati.
