In a recent interview, the Dhadak actor discussed her academic background and was cited as saying, “I only cared about history and literature, which I did really well in.”

“I don’t understand the point. Aaj tak maine Algebra ka istemaal kiya hi nahi hai toh itna kyu maine sar toda? (I never used algebra till date, don’t know why I was trying so hard). Like… what was the point? History and literature, on the other hand… it makes you a cultured human. Maths just makes you like retarded,” she further stated.

In response to Janhvi Kapoor’s comment, netizens started trolling her on social media. A user commented, “Aryabhatta be like: IQ check ke liye hi zero invent kiya that (To check IQ I invented zero).” Another wrote, “Watch interviews of Sushmita Sen, Shahrukh Khan avoid Ananya and Janhvi Kapoor as simple as that”.

Another comment stated, “her maths teacher watching this: (angry face emoji).” One netizen also commented, “The only actress you could take seriously in interviews is Kriti Sanon, she’s an engineer and highly educated, plus she’s very proper, even if you don’t like her acting, you’ll respect her as a human, I’ve yet to see something dumb or controversial from her.”
