Janhvi Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao starrer Mr & Mrs Mahi trailer has been released recently. The film is all set to release on May 31. Well, ahead of the release, director Sharan Sharma has shared a set of two photos featuring Janhvi’s cricket learning journey. He also penned a long note. The actress is also seen reacting to it.

Taking to his Instagram handle, Sharan Sharma shared photos in which we can see Janhvi wearing casuals and holding a cricket bat. In the second she is seen batting like a cricketer. He wrote, “2021 vs 2024 … the first image was clicked in June 2021. Moments after I narrated the script of Mr & Mrs Mahi to JK I asked her to pick up a bat and take stance. As I clicked this picture I was proper scared … her stance was terrible … she knew nothing about the sport … how were we going to pull this off? … I then met 2 magicians @abhisheknayar and @vikrant_yeligeti who turned this impossible dream into reality. Extremely grateful that they came on board and took up this challenge! Super proud of JK’s cricketing skills we have managed to achieve in the film! Will post some more during the next few days about what all it took to get from Image 1 to Image 2!”

Take a look at here:

Janhvi reacted, “2 yrs 9 kilos 2 dislocations and many fights later. Wouldn’t have done it any other way. Still the most special journey.”

The heartwarming trailer showcases Rajkummar Rao as Mahendra (Mahi), a former aspiring cricketer who now sees potential in Janhvi’s character, also named Mahi, a doctor. Encouraging her to pursue cricket, the trailer provides a captivating look into a story filled with dreams, ambitions, and the imperfectly perfect love story of Mahendra and Mahima that is sure to captivate audiences.

In an interview with Mid-Day, Janhvi had earlier revealed that she underwent a gruelling six months of intensive training in order to adapt to the mannerisms of a cricketer. The actress had said, “It was an exhaustive process of six months to get into the skin of the character and sync into the role.”
