Actress Sridevi, the mother of Janhvi Kapoor was very excited for her upcoming film “Shiddat”with her daughter. But, unfortunately before the shootings started Sridevi passed away in Dubai on 24th of February, 2018 in accidental drowning.
The death of Sridevi was a shock for the whole nation, but it was a severe blow for the family and especially her daughters. Especially for Janhvi Kapoor, who is going to make a way in Bollywood and had a movie and photo shoot scheduled with her mother, Sridevi.
The young talent very well recognises her responsibility and did shoot for the Vogue Cover without Mommy Sridevi and that too brilliantly.
Sridevi and Janhvi both were going to work together in the upcoming movie of Abhishek Varman- “Shiddat” being produced by Dharma Production. The film 2 states was Abhishek Varman’s debut film as a director. Janhvi’s debut film “Dhadak”is also being produced by the same brand- Karan Johar productions.
The film Shiddat was very close to Sridevi’s heart and it has been confirmed by Janhvi Kapoor that Madhuri Dixit is going to replace Sridevi in the movie or rather say play Sridevi’s role.
In a post in Instagram Janhvi had confirmed the news of Madhuri playing Sridevi’s role in Shiddat and also expressed her gratitude towards Madhuri Dixit for accepting the role, expressing how close was this movie was to Sridevi and how excited they were to work on it. She even shared a photo of mommy Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit on the sets of a dancing reality show.
The other star cast of the movie that are heard of are- Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan and Aditya Roy Kapoor.
The story line up goes like this Sridevi and Sanjay Dutt were to play parents to young brothers Varun Dhawan and Aditya Roy Kapoor and Alia Bhatt and Janhvi Kapoor to be their heroines. Nothing has been confirmed yet except the casting of Sridevi and Sanjay Dutt and now Madhuri Dixit in Sridevi’s place.
This film is going to be a collaboration of Dharma Productions with Fox Star Studios and Sajid Nadiadwala.
The shooting for the film was going to go air in a month or two but there were rumours that Sridevi’s untimely death had led Karan Johar to take off this project. Nothing is so and it can be understood by Janvhi’s Insta post thanking Madhuri Dixit for becoming a part of this beautiful film.
Along with the new comer Janvhi Kapoor it is also a chance to see the duo Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt romancing each other and the trio of Varun, Alia and Karan Johar coming back again with their 4th movie after Student of the year, Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania and Badrinath ki Dulhania.
The film is going to make its way to the theatres in 2019.
