We also hear that Dharma Productions’ head honcho Karan Johar, who launched Janhvi Kapoor with Dhadak, has come on board as the presenter of the film. According to reports, it was KJo who suggested Janhvi’s name to the director of the film. 

Spilling some more details on the project, a source in the know informs a publication that even Alia Bhatt and Ananya Panday were approached for the project. “Even actresses such as Alia Bhatt and Ananya Pandey were approached for the part, but things did not materialise. However, Karan Johar was instrumental in getting Janhvi Kapoor on board. The actress is still working her date diary, and in all probability, she might commence shooting in February,” says the source.
