Earlier this year, the young and gorgeous Bollywood actress Janhvi Kapoor had made her appearance in Karan Johar’s talk show Koffee with Karan, in which Janhvi had expressed her desire to share screen space with the stylish Tollywood actor Vijay Deverakonda who she admires a lot, and it looks like her dream is coming true.
Now according to the latest reports, Janhvi Kapoor will be acting opposite Vijay Deverakonda for Puri Jagan’s upcoming movie Fighter. Famous Bollywood director and producer Karan Johar had recently made news as he agreed to collaborate with director Puri Jagan to release the Hindi version of his upcoming Telugu film, also taking responsibility of the pan-India release of the movie.
Although an official confirmation has not been made yet by the makers of Fighter, the highly talented Janhvi Kapoor has given her green signal for the project after director Puri narrated the entertaining script to Janhvi. It was Karan Johar who suggested Janhvi’s name to director Puri to play the role of the heroine in the film.
A source close to Deccan Chronicle also revealed that “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.”
