Janhvi Kapoor has been reportedly signed on to play the female lead opposite Varun Dhawan in Shashank Khaitan’s next film.
A source informed the daily: “Shashank and Karan Johar (who is backing the project) wanted a new Jodi for the film. They felt Janhvi would be a perfect fit.”
Shashank confirmed that Varun is definitely on for the movie but he is still working on the script and is not sure about the entire casting as of now.
The source further revealed about the roles and said that Janhvi will be seen in a different avatar for the movie and will undergo rigorous training as well to perform some stunts.
Varun and Janhvi are most likely to begin shooting for the movie in April or May next year.
Varun will begin shooting for Remo D’Souza next with Katrina Kaif in January next year, while Janhvi begins shooting for Takht in August 2019.
Janhvi, the daughter of late superstar Sridevi, made her Bollywood debut with Dhadak this year along with Ishaan Khatter.
The movie performed well at the box office.
