Janhvi Kapoor thanks Madhuri Dixit for stepping into Sridevi's shoes in 'Shiddat'

Coming Back To This Abhishek Verman Directorial

Recent reports suggested that Madhuri Dixit-Nene was to replace Sridevi in the film and now the late actress's elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor had made an announcement about the same. Previously a source close to KJo's production house had revealed to a leading daily that there were a lot of speculative stories doing the rounds about the star cast of Abhishek Varman's Shiddat but noone had been approached for the film post Sidevi's sudden demise. When Madhuri Dixit rose to stardom with 1989 film Tezaab, Sridevi was at the peak of her career working with nearly every leading hero back then. Sridevi was to be paired with Sanjay Dutt, while Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt were also to be a part of the project and the film was to go on the floors by April next year.

She took to the site earlier on Monday to explain how Indian film director Abhishek Varman's next movie was "very close" to Sridevi's heart.

Sridevi's daughter Jhanvi Kapoor announced on Twitter that legendary actress Madhuri Dixit replaced the legendary Sridevi in Karan Johar's upcoming venture.

If this cast is indeed confirmed then we would get to see the reunion of one of Bollywood's most iconic jodis- Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit. Apart from the Kapoor family, this film will also be special for Sridevi's fans worldwide.

According to sources, Shiddat is set against the backdrop of the Indo-Pak partition and some enormous sets would be designed and ace designer Manish Malhotra would be handling the costumes.

Karan Johar and Manish Malhotra are also likely to drop Jhanvi while her sister Khushi will accompany her.
