Since the release of her debut movie Dhadak, Janhvi Kapoor has been winning hearts with her power-packed acting and stellar sense of fashion. The actress has definitely become filmmakers’ favorite. After bagging Karan johar’s Takht, rumors have it that Janhvi Kapoor will be seen as the leading lady opposite Varun Dhawan in Shashank Khaitan directorial Rannbhoomi.
According to the reports in Bollywood Hungama, it is believed that Shashank has two names on his mind for the female lead opposite Varun. The first one is of Alia Bhatt, who Shashank has directed in films Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. The second one is of Janhvi Kapoor, who he directed in this year’s release, Dhadak. It is learned that Shashank is confused about who should he zero in on.
A source in the report has been quoted as saying, “Varun has been finalized long back. But if you see, there’s no leading lady in Rannbhoomi as yet. That’s because Shashank has to make up his mind whether to cast his favorite Alia Bhatt or his new favorite Janhvi Kapoor whom he directed to stardom in Dhadak.”
The buzz also has it that Dhadak girl Janhvi Kapoor has higher chances of getting the film as Alia is already loaded with movies and has a packed schedule. The actress has completed the third shooting schedule of Brahmastra in Bulgaria and is now shooting for Kalank. After which she has to start shooting for Takht and Sadak 2. Looks like Alia is not unavailable for at least two years. This automatically gives Janhvi the upper hand.
However, earlier it was learned that the makers have zeroed in on Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan to star opposite Varun Dhawan but now Shashank Khaitan has made it clear that the leading lady is not finalised yet.
