Jahnvi Kapoor will be awarded 'Arets Stjerneskudd' rising talent of the year by the Norwegian Consulate General in Mumbai. The event will have Iram Haq from Norway, the director of What Will People Say, and industry veterans including Janhvi's father and film producer Boney Kapoor.
"I made my debut with Dhadak this year. Our film has been seen by audiences across the globe since it released worldwide and many of them including people staying in Norway have seen the film and sent their good wishes via social media. This recognition is a pleasant surprise. I am happy to receive this honour and humbled that they chose me for this honour," Janhvi said in a statement.
The evening will also see the screening of two acclaimed Norwegian films including What Will People Say, Norway's official entry for the Academy Awards for 2019. The other is The King's Choice -- a biographical war film that was Norwegian entry for the Academy Awards in 2016, reports IANS.
This is an initiative by the Norway government to promote Norwegian cinema and help build entertainment ties with India. The screenings also coincide with the Nobel Peace Prize announcements. Both the films promote unity and peace.
