Actor Janhvi Kapoor received the Best debutant award at the last night held Dadasheb Phalke Excellence Awards 2019. For her appearance at the event, Janhvi wore a stunning pink coloured saree, designed by Manish Malhotra. The actor looked ethereal in the minimal saree look that she styled with tied hair and two sleek neckpieces of emerald and pearl. Janhvi let the striking colour of her saree do all the talking as she decided to not go over the board by wearing a pair of earrings or even opting for dramatic makeup. It was a look that was relatively simpler than most of her red carpet outings and Janhvi worked every bit of it. Here are some beautiful pictures of Janhvi in that saree:

Janvhi was joined by her Dhadak co-star Ishaan Khatter at the award ceremony. Like Janhvi, Ishaan too bagged the trophy of the Best Debutant male at the function. Together, both the young stars cut a lovely picture.
