Janhvi Kapoor: “Every celebrity has a ration card”

Janhvi Kapoor, a rising star in Bollywood, has become a favorite among photographers for her frequent public appearances. In a recent interview, she shared surprising insights about the paparazzi culture, revealing the financial dynamics behind the scenes.

Paparazzi Paid Per Photo Based on Star Popularity

Janhvi Kapoor disclosed that paparazzi earn money based on the popularity of the celebrities they photograph. “Like right now, Mr and Mrs Mahi’s promotion is going on; they are called to the airport to click my picture,” she explained. She highlighted that when a film promotion is not underway, photographers go the extra mile to capture images of popular stars because they get paid for each picture.

Celebrities Have a “Ration Card” in Paparazzi Terms

Janhvi elaborated on the concept of a “ration card” in paparazzi terms, explaining, “Every celebrity has a ration card. Their pictures sell for so much. If your price is high, they reach you, follow your car. If the price is not that high, you call paparazzi.” This system means that more popular celebrities are pursued more aggressively by photographers, while others might need to notify the paparazzi themselves.

Upcoming Project: Mr and Mrs Mahi

Janhvi Kapoor will be seen next in the film “Mr and Mrs Mahi,” where she stars opposite Rajkummar Rao. This project adds to her growing portfolio in Bollywood, where she has already made a significant mark.
