Janhvi Kapoor is on cloud nine. And why not, considering she has passed the litmust test with her debut movie Dhadak winning the praise of both, critics and the masses. The film is a hit and audiences are appreciating Janhvi and Ishan's chemistry and acting chops.
Incidentally, Boney Kapoor’s original plan was to launch his daughter Janhvi in a home production. But Sridevi apparently felt it was inappropriate for her parents’ to launch her child’s career. So the alternative plan was to let Janhvi be launched in an outside production .
Now that she has been launched in Dhadak it’s time serve up a home production for Janhvi. Though there is nothing official about it yet, one hears Boney Kapoor is seriously looking for a script that would do justice his daughter’s presence. Though nothing is confirmed yet a friend of Boney Kapoor revealed, “It would be a role very different from the one Janhvi has done in Dhadak. Hopefully something very glamorous. Boney is known to spend money over his family films like water. The original Telugu versions of Sridevi’s Judaai and Arjun Kapoor’s Tevar were made at a measly Rs5-8 crores. Boney spent close to Rs 45 crores on each of the two Hindi remakes. Janhvi’s film for her home production would be as lavish as her mother's Mr India.”
While the last word is not yet out on her next move, Janhvi is basking in the appreciation. Talking to a leading daily, the actress revealed how her family reacted after watching her on screen for the first time, adding it was an emotional time for both Boney and her sister Khushi. “The love has been overwhelming," Janhvi has been quoted as saying. "More than anything else, it feels good to know that we’ve moved people with this message that we were trying to convey. I’m just happy about any form of acceptance, so I have a chance to work more and do better at what I love. To see my father, Shashank (Khaitan) and Karan (Johar) feeling so proud and happy means the world to me”.
She revealed what happened the night both Khushi and Boney watched Dhadak and said, “Khushi was crying… She looked at me and said, ‘Why are you worrying?’ and then started crying again. Papa actually saw the film a month ago, and as soon as the screening was over, he went to the temple. That night he came to my room and held me tight and started crying”.
