We reported earlier this week that Janhvi Kapoor has been cast in Kayoze Irani’s next film, which will be directed by Dharma Productions. For the first time, Kapoor appears to be paired with Sidharth Malhotra.
A source told Filmfare, “Janhvi Kapoor has been locked to play the main female lead. Janhvi and Dharma were supposed to do two films – Dostana 2 and Mr. Lele but both of them got stuck and were delayed.”
The source added, “While Dostana 2 is undergoing a massive cast change after Dharma decided to replace Kartik Aaryan from the project, it was due to Kartik’s constant date clashes that Janhvi had to let go of Mr. Lele as well. So, Karan decided to give Janhvi Kayoze’s film instead. It’s a very strong, emotional romcom.”
Janvhi Kapoor went on to star in another Dharma Productions film, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, after making her Dharma debut in the 2018 film Dhadak. Kayoze’s film will be her third provided everything goes well.
