Janhvi Kapoor to Work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali Next?
Janhvi Kapoor's meeting with Sanjay Leela Bhansali at his office recently set off speculations
Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s eldest born Janhvi is going places. After a dream launch with Karan Johar’s production in Dhadak opposite Shahid Kapoor's brother Ishaan Khatter, she will again be seen in a Karan Johar film playing the real-life role of a female airforce pilot.
Quite possibly, Janhvi’s third film may be a Sanjay Leela Bhansali production. Speculation was sparked off when Janhvi dropped in at the Bhansali office earlier this week. Further probing proved that there was indeed more to this visit than a mere hello.
Says a source close to the development, “SLB (Bhansali) has something in mind for Janhvi. He always wanted to work with her mother (the legendary Sridevi). But somehow never could find the opportunity. When Janhvi began her career, SLB was immediately keen on her being part of his cinema.”
Sources say Sanjay Bhansali will work on the project with Janhvi after his production Malaal is released in June or July. While it is not certain what Bhansali has in mind for Janhvi, the one thing that is certain is that he won’t be personally directing the film featuring Janhvi in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali production. It remains to be seen who will helm the film.
Meanwhile, Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be busy with his next project Inshallah that will see him pair with his old favourite Salman Khan and the fresh-faced Alia Bhatt. His last film was Padmaavat that saw him work with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. Padmaavat's success and his equation with Deepika and Ranveer led to speculations that SLB would work with the golden couple again. However, as it turned out the maverick director has other ideas and is keen on working with new talent - even if they are starkids! Meanwhile, Inshallah brings Salman and Bhansali together after nearly 19 years. Earlier there were reports that the duo had had a fallout but now all seems well.
