Jahnavi has a bachelor’s degree in Journalism, Psychology and English Literature and an Actors diploma from the institute - Anupam Kher’s Actor Prepares, Mumbai. She started her career as an actor at the age of 16 and has worked in multiple theatre productions in the city of Bangalore. She has also worked in a number of South Indian movies (in languages, Tamil & Kannada) as the lead female actress. She is well known for her work in the movies Parari & Bhagyaraj.
She joined Steps in the year 2011 as a free-lance associate and moved up to being an Account Director for India, in 2016. She quit working in the movies to join Steps full-time, because she found a lot more meaning in the work that Steps does. She believes that this is the right platform for her, to use her skill as an actor for a greater purpose. She is passionate about meeting new people, understanding different cultures. As an Account Director, she has written, managed and delivered successful programs for organizations like Tesco, KPMG, Adobe, Visa to name a few. She believes that working for Steps has completely transformed her as a person and made her realize that there is more to life than just being a good actor.
She lives in the city of Bangalore with her parents (only when she isn’t travelling, which is quite often). She loves doing Yoga, watching stand-up comedy and spending time with animals in and around her neighbourhood.
I always wanted to be a VJ (Video Jockey) on national television.
I bought myself an apartment very recently in the City of Bangalore, India. Put in all my life savings to buy it.
A squirrel. The quick and swift movements, always to be on the move and the love for trees, that’s me!
