Janhvi Kapoor was born on March 6, 1997 to actress Sridevi and filmmaker Boney Kapoor. She has a younger sister Khushi and two brothers, actors Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor. She is the nephew of actors Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor. She studied at Dhirubhai Ambani International School in Mumbai. Prior to her film debut, she took acting courses at the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute in California.

She made her acting debut in 2018 with a commercially successful romantic drama film Dadak. Kapoor has since appeared in the Netflix movies Ghost Stories and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl (both in 2020).

Rajeev Masand, who wrote about CNN-News18, criticized the film for removing caste-based references and thought it was inferior to the original, but Kapoor said, "The vulnerabilities that immediately make her beloved and the soulful traits that make her eye catching. I felt I had. Get her out of the screen. Conversely, Firstpost's Anna MM Vetticad thought, "It lacks personality and delivers colorless performance."

Kapoor made her acting debut in 2018 as the romance Dhadak directed by Shashank Khaitan, co-starring Ishaan Khatter. A remake of the 2016 marathi film Sairat in Hindi, the film appeared as a young upper-class girl whose life turns tragically after she was eliminated with a lower-class boy (the role of Cater). Although the film received mostly negative reviews, it had a commercial success with a worldwide collection of $1.1 billion.

Kapoor's next screen appearance was when he starred in the part of Zoya Akhtar in the 2020 Netflix horror anthology movie Ghost Stories. Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express hated the segment, but added that "the only surprising thing comes out of Janhvi Kapoor with hard and practical actions." Then she took the title of aviator Gunjan Saxena in the biographical film Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, which is not released in theaters due to the COVID-19 pandemic and instead streams on Netflix. In preparation, she spent time with Saxena, received physical training, and learned the air force officer's body language. NDTV's Saibal Chatterjee described Kapoor's performance as "very steady," while Film Companion's Rahul Desai was more grateful for her "deceptive private performance" considered "pitch-perfect".

Kapoor will play a double role as opposed to Rajkummar Rao in the comedy horror movie Roohi Afzana. She also starred in Dostana 2 with Kartik Aaryan and Laksh Lalwani and starred in Karan Johar's ensemble-era film Takht.
