Actress Janhvi Kapoor made her Bollywood debut last year with the movie ‘Dhadak’. Since then the actress has been signed many interesting projects such as Karan Johar’s directorial ‘Takht’, the sequel to the much-anticipated movie ‘Dostana 2’, the eagerly awaited biopic ‘Gunjan Saxena’, ‘Roohi Afza’ with Rajkummar Rao and Ghost Stories.
Now, according to the reports in Hindustan Times, the daughter of actress Late Sridevi has signed a very special project with her Dad. According to reports, Janhvi will soon team up with her father, producer Boney Kapoor, in a film. Apparently, the film has been titled Bombay Girl, and will go on the floors in January next year.
“It will see Janhvi in an all-new avatar. Undoubtedly, it’s going to be a special project for both, her as well as Boneyji. After all, the father-daughter duo is coming together for the first time. For the same film, Boneyji has joined hands with [producer] Mahaveer Jain,” said an industry insider to Hindustan Times.
Hindustan Times also reported that the movie will be written and directed by Ssanjay Tripaathy.
“It’s going to be a coming-of-age story of a rebellious teenager and Janhvi is also very excited about the film as the part is diametrically opposite to her other roles,” the source said.
Boney Kapoor is excited to work with his daughter for the very first year.
“I am surely very excited about the film. Janhvi will be doing something completely different from what she is doing in all her other movies,” said Boney Kapoor to HT.
“I feel whenever a parent works with his/her kids, it’s an emotional experience, and the same holds true for me. I was equally overwhelmed when I teamed up with Arjun [Kapoor; son] for the first time,” he added.
Further details about the project are awaited.
Meanwhile, Boney Kapoor will also work with his son Arjun Kapoor in the Hindi remake of Tamil hit, ‘Comali’.
