Bollywood actress Janhvi Kapoor recently opened up about a significant incident that had a profound impact on her. In a candid interview with Bollywood Hungama, Kapoor recalled a cricket mishap that left her on the verge of surgery, reshaping her perspective on health and resilience. The incident occurred while she was preparing for her latest film, Mr. and Mrs Mahi.

Jhanvi went through intense physical training and cricket practices for more than 150 days and was shooting for the film for over thirty days. During the practice, she dislocated her shoulder twice. The actress mentioned that she has a condition called Multidirectional instability (MDI), to which she adds “It’s not very serious, but… I am one such person whose joints are prone to dislocation.”

After her second dislocation, Kapoor’s condition was so severe that doctors warned she might need surgery. “The doctor said I was the worst candidate in the world to play cricket,” she recounted with a laugh, highlighting the unexpected severity of her injury. Not only this, the Roohi (2021) star also had a hairline fracture and a labrum tear while she was preparing for her latest sports film.

This incident was a turning point for Kapoor. She realized the importance of taking care of her physical health and being mindful of the risks associated with physical activities.

Janhvi Kapoor’s cricket mishap, while a challenging episode, has ultimately led to personal growth and a deeper appreciation for her well-being and career. Her journey serves as an inspiring reminder of the importance of health, resilience, and the ability to overcome obstacles.
