The versatile and iconic actress Sridevi’s elder daughter Jhanvi Kapoor is all set to make her grand debut in bollywood.
Enough of speculations were done revolving star kid Jhanvi Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan’s mega Bollywood debut. Initially, there were reports that filmmaker Karan Johar would take the responsibility of their debuts and reportedly, Karan has signed Jhanvi for a three-film deal under his Dharma Productions.
Apparently, she’s being considered for the superhit Marathi film ‘Sairaat’s Hindi remake, along with ‘Student of the Year 2.’ However, it now appears that Jhanvi will make her debut with the remake of “The Fault in Our Stars”, which will co-star Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter, TOI reports.
Several actor – actress pairs have been linked to “Fault In Our Stars” remake including that of Deepika Padukone – Sushant Singh Rajput, Alia Bhatt – Aditya Roy Kapur and even Sara was considered for the role! But looks like now its going to go to her contemporary Jhanvi!
Shashank Khaitan, who directed “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania” and “Badrinath Ki Dulhania”, will be responsible for the aforementioned project. It’ll be Ishaan’s second film after Majid Majidi’s “Beyond the Clouds”.
No official word on Jhanvi Kapoor’s debut has been made as yet for which this piece solely adds to the the list of speculations about her first film.
Sridevi, in the meantime, refused to reveal details about Jhanvi’s career graph and instead, said that she has been training her daughter about the workings of the film industry.
On a related note, Ishaan and Jhanvi have often been spotted attending movies together, hinting at a budding romance. The young stars have been spotted at various screenings and while it looks like something is brewing between them, maybe it has more to do with their film.
