A few days ago the paparazzi was click-happy showing the late (and much missed) Sridevi’s two daughters Jhanvi and Khushi emerging from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s office building. Speculators were on overdrive imagining a film collaboration between Bhansali and Sri’s beti, Jhanvi.
But here’s the truth about Jhanvi’s supposed visit to Bhansali’s office. Says a source close to Bhansali’s team, “Jhanvi and Khushi didn’t visit Sanjay Bhansali. They visited Bhansali’s niece Sharmin Sehgal who is Jhanvi’s best friend. Sharmin lives with her sister Simran and parents Bela Sehgal (SLB’s sister) and Deepak Sehgal in the same building where Sanjay Bhansali has his office. The paps saw her emerge from that building and concluded the obvious.” Interestingly Jhanvi and Sharmin have been best friends since they both attended the same acting school in Los Angeles two years ago. The two of them used to hang out together in LA and they are now inseparable in Mumbai. They will make their screen debut at around the same time. While Jhanvi is being launched by Karan Johar in Dhadak, Sharmin is being launched by her uncle Sanjay Leela Bhansali in a film that will be directed by Mangesh Hadawale.
Didn’t we tell you that 2018 was the year of exciting debuts?
