Karan Johar, known for launching young talent, is reported to be roping in Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor in his film Shiddat.
Jhanvi will be making her Bollywood debut pairing with Varun Dhawan.
While previous reports had said that Varun will pair with Alia Bhatt, latest buzz is that it is Jhanvi who will share screen space with the Dishoom actor.
Jhanvi already has a decent fan base due to her social media presence and there has been much speculation about her movie debut.
The film will go on the floors from mid-2017.
However, there has not been any official confirmation on the casting of the movie that will be directed by Abhishek Varma.
Earlier, it was reported that the movie will have Alia and Arjun Kapoor along with Varun.
Previously titled Kalank, Shiddat will also reportedly have Madhuri Dixit Nene, playing the character of a mother of the female lead.
Reports had also claimed that Arjun was not sure about the project as he felt that Varun’s role was more powerful than his and he would be overshadowed in the film. – CINEWS
