While her best friend Sara Ali Khan has begun filming her debut Bollywood project Kedarnath, Jhanvi Kapoor’s big Bollywood debut is yet to happen and it has just been confirmed that she will play the lead role in the remake of popular Marathi film, Sairaat, opposite Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother Ishaan Khattar.
After much delay, the first schedule of filming will start in North India. Sridevi’s older daughter Jhanvi has also been taking acting and dancing lessons for her role in the remake. It will be directed by Shashank Khaitan, who has already filmed under the Dharma label for Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania and filming is set to begin next month, in December.
While this will be Jhanvi’s first film, Ishaan is no stranger to the silver screen. Having minor roles and sharing screen space with brother Shahid Kapoor in Waah Life Ho Toh Aisi and Udta Punjab, he has also starred in an international film called Beyond the Dreams, which was directed by academy award winning director Majid Majidi.
The Sairaat remake is slated to be released sometime next year. We look forward to seeing these star kids steal the limelight!
