Priya Prakash Varrier, the winking girl who became an overnight sensation with her viral video is making her Bollywood debut with Sridevi Bungalow. However, before the release, it has triggered controversy because of its uncanny resemblance to Sridevi's death. The netizens not only slammed the film but even appalled Boney Kapoor has slapped a legal notice on the makers.
Though, the makers are insisting that the movie has nothing to do with late veteran actress Sridevi as it is a common name. Even Priya said that Sridevi is just the name of the character she is playing and they have no intentions of creating controversies around the film. "Sridevi is just the name of my character in the movie. Who would want to create such controversies? I think the curiosity surrounding the trailer is good and we have to leave it to the audience to judge if the film is based on the veteran actress Sridevi ma'am," said Priya.
However, Boney Kapoor is in no mood to take it lightly and the reports suggest that he won't rest until Sridevi Bungalow is shelved. Recently, when Janhvi was asked about the film at an awards night, she dodged the question. When one of the members of media popped up question, the manager of 21-years-old actress intervened and asked her to call off the interaction.

On the professional front, Janhvi will be seen in Karan Johar's directorial Takht, which is a multi-starrer film. She has also started preparations for a biopic on IAF fighter pilot Gunjan Saxena. Flight lieutenant Gunjan was posted in Kargil during 1999. During the war, she not only evacuated injured soldiers from the war field flying through Kashmir but also experienced a brush with death while doing this brave act.
