Janhvi Kapoor left everyone stunned with a powerful performance in her debut film Dhadak (2018). Also starring newcomer Ishaan Khatter in the lead role, the tragic love story was an official adaptation of filmmaker Nagraj Manjule’s Marathi blockbuster Sairat (2016). Dhadak emerged as one of the highest-grossing films of 2018 and proved that Janhvi Kapoor has a long way to go in the Indian film industry.

Janhvi, who is the elder daughter of late legendary actress Sridevi and filmmaker Boney Kapoor, has signed several films after the release of Dhadak. She is currently shooting for Maddock Films’ horror-comedy Roohi-Afza with Rajkummar Rao. Aside from Roohi-Afza, she has also signed three high-profile films with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, including Takht, Kargil Girl and Dostana 2.

Janhvi Kapoor has a huge fan following down South also, thanks to her mother Sridevi who ruled the South Indian film industry for many decades. Sridevi and Janhvi Kapoor’s fans are eager to see the latter doing films in the South. It looks like God has granted their wish as some source informs to an Indian daily that the newcomer has signed a film down South.

According to a report, Janhvi Kapoor has signed her debut Telugu film and she will romance heartthrob Vijay Deverakonda in it. To be directed by well-known South Indian filmmaker Puri Jagannadh, the yet-to-be-titled film has Vijay and Janhvi playing the lead roles. The film is expected to mount the shooting floor in the coming months.
