"Our nations will lose their focus."
Janhvi Kapoor was trolled by some social media users over her cricket skills.
The actress was practising her skills as part of her role as a cricketer in Mr & Mrs Mahi, which also stars Rajkummar Rao.
In a viral video, Janhvi was seen practising her shot types as a tennis ball was bowled at her.
The video led to a mixed response among social media users.
Some joked that Janhvi was India’s only hope for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
One person said: “Our only hope for the T20 World Cup.”
Another asked: “Should we send Janhvi to the World Cup Team?”
However, some wondered why the actress was wearing pads when she is practising with a tennis ball.
One user questioned: “Cricket with a tennis ball and wearing gloves?”
Another person said: “Who wears pads for a tennis ball?”

Others were left feeling hot under the collar by Janhvi’s outfit for the occasion as she was seen wearing a t-shirt and tight-fitting shorts. This led to a few lewd comments.
Some people left the hot face emoji in the comments.

Another replied: “Our nations will lose their focus.”
One comment read: “Sizzling sizzling.”
A user posted a lewd comment which read: “Tell her a** to stop staring at my eyes.”
Another said: “Someone pass over me the pads on those thighs.”
Reacting to Janhvi’s figure, others made plastic surgery claims. For example, one comment read:
“Legs padded and a** silicone padded.”
The crude comments prompted a few netizens to call those people out.
One person said: “I see so many people focused on something else and commenting.
“Just want to say to them you mentally sick people you can not think above b***s, hips and thighs.”
“Try to see a sister and mother in every girl then you will have a better vision.”
One person wrote: “This is so creepy. Stop recording people like this. Weirdos.”
While the viral video led to obscene comments, some praised Janhvi Kapoor for her dedication to fully immerse herself in her role.
One person said: “Her stance is better than KL Rahul, our so-called opener.”
Another commented: “We don’t need Shami or Chahar if she is there.”
Janhvi Kapoor announced Mr & Mrs Mahi in 2021 and she has been preparing for it ever since.
