Confirmed! Sridevi’s Daughter Jhanvi Kapoor To Debut In KJo Movie

It is a well known fact that Karan Johar has made many a career, launched fresh faces and made overnight stars out of star kids and non-star kids. Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra are some famous examples of the same.

It is now confirmed that he will be launching Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor in a movie produced by his banner Dharma Productions and presumably directed by him too.

It is speculated that the movie will be a remake of the Marathi blockbuster ‘Sairat’. Boney Kapoor confirmed the news that Karan is keen on signing Jhanvi but he admitted that it is not sure whether the movie will be the Sairat remake.

“Yes, Karan has been talking to us about a film for Jhanvi and we’ve given consent. But we don’t know which project it would be. Since Karan has recently acquired the remake rights of Sairat it is being presumed that our daughter would be launched in this project,” said Mr. Kapoor to a leading daily.


According to reports, Jhanvi has finished her education and has been prepping for her Bollywood debut since a year. She is undergoing training in dance, acting and focus is being given to her looks. She has been encouraged to post regularly on social media and has already garnered a fan following of sorts. Jhanvi also accompanies mum and seasoned actress Sridevi to important events to learn the nitty gritties of stardom.

Sairat is Marathi cinema’s biggest hit so far and the story dealt with the subject of casteism. It is being said that a newcomer will be cast opposite Jhanvi if the film goes through and the makers will not consider a seasoned actor opposite Ms. Kapoor making her debut, in order to maintain the freshness of the project.

Will Jhanvi make it as big as her superstar mother? We will have to wait and watch.
