The rumours are apparently true. Sridevi’s elder daughter Jhanvi Kapoor is aiming for the stars and will be launched in Bollywood by filmmaker Karan Johar, reports DNA. The film in question is reportedly the Hindi remake of Marathi hit ‘Sairat’ but while Jhanvi’s father Boney Kapoor confirmed that Karan is to handle her debut, he wasn’t sure if it would be the ‘Sairat’ remake. Jhanvi, 19, is the elder of Sridevi and producer Boney Kapoor’s two daughters and is an object of great interest for both the film industry and social media.
Karan Johar is accomplished at supervising debuts, having overseen the launches of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. Sairat, which deals with casteism, released earlier this year to great acclaim and is Marathi cinemas biggest hit so far. It will be remade in Telugu, Kannada, Punjabi, Tamil and Malayalam.
