Janhvi Kapoor to Make Digital Debut with Zoya Akhtar's Anthology in Ghost Stories
Janhvi Kapoor is a talented girl and has been continuously making her mark in the industry. She is now trying her hand on the web with Zoya Akhtar's anthology in 'Ghost Stories'
if there’s one Bollywood celebrity who’s going places, it’s none other than Janhvi Kapoor. Janhvi Kapoor has been making waves in the industry as of late and has an ever growing fan base. Having made her big Bollywood debut with Dhadak, Janhvi Kapoor won the hearts of many and is most certainly going to go places. Now, a few years ago, four filmmakers Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap came together to make four shorts in a film called Bombay Velvet. In 2018, they launched Lust Stories where they shared one story each revolving around love, lust and desire.
Now, the four plan on reuniting for another similar project, which has been titled Ghost Stories. Bhumi Pednekar, Radhika Apte, Vicky Kaushal and Kiara Advani were some of the prominent faces in Lust Stories and like the last series, Ghost Stories will have the four filmmakers share one horror short each. A source which is close to the development has revealed that, "Zoya has a script ready and she will soon be filming her short. It is a quirky but really scary story and this will be her first stint with the horror genre. But everyone who has heard the story has loved it."
Interestingly, she has also already locked the main lead for her anthology. "Janhvi Kapoor is the one who will essay the main protagonist in Zoya's short. Zoya and Janhvi met and the actress was bowled over by the script. It didn't take too much of convincing and Ghost Stories will mark Janhvi's debut into the digital world as well. She has also alloted her dates for the same and since it's a 30-minute short, it will be wrapped up in about ten days of shoot,” the source said.
This won't be Janhvi's first project in the space as she has also done RoohiAfza with Rajkummar Rao which is a horror comedy. On the work front, apart from the Dinesh Vijan production venture, Janhvi will also be seen essaying the role of IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena in her biopic followed by Dostana 2 alongisde Kartik Aaryan and Karan Johar's magnum opus Takht. She is also in talks for two other big projects that will go on floors next year. But we're now waiting to see the magic Jahnhvi can bring on the web too!
