Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor has been making headlines ever since the announcement of her debut film, the Karan Johar-backed Dhadak, that also stars Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter. But even before the release of the film, B-Town's latest hot property is in the race to star alongside Ranveer Singh in Rohit Shetty’s directorial venture Simmba!
It's been touted that Janhvi will be sharing a lot more screen space with Ranveer than Kajal Aggarwal in the original. Since KJo is co-producing Simmba it was his idea to cast Janhvi. However, Boney had reservations about this project since he had seen the original and felt the heroine's role was limited in scope. But Karan, who is mentoring Janhvi and launching her in Dhadak, assured Boney and Sridevi that a hardcore masala film with Rohit Shetty is just what Janhvi's career needs as its post-debut booster!
