"We had seen the rushes of Dhadak when Sridevi was alive. So, she had seen her daughter on screen," Boney said. "Khushi had auditioned, too, and after Janhvi's audition, she got a scholarship at the New York Film Academy."
Boney also revealed that if Sridevi had been alive, she would have worked with Janhvi in the movie Kalank, which was earlier titled Shiddat. "When Janhvi grew up, Karan Johar came home and expressed his desire to launch her. He wanted to make Shiddat with Janhvi which was later released as Kalank.”
Kapoor further added, “He wanted Janhvi to play the role which was eventually played by Alia Bhatt in Kalank and he wanted Sridevi to play the role eventually played by Madhuri Dixit. Later, he decided to make Dhadak with Janhvi. Till Sridevi was alive, Kalank was called Shiddat. She had agreed to do the film reluctantly.”
Coming to Janhvi’s professional front, she was last seen in Nitesh Tiwari’s Bawaal, co-starring Varun Dhawan. The actress has an interesting line-up with a bunch of films in her kitty, including Mr. & Mrs. Mahi and Ulajh.
