A few days back, Karan Johar on the reality show ‘India’s Next Superstar’ had revealed that Sridevi was supposed to star in his production venture for which they were going to start shooting in April. However, as Sridevi is no more with us, we all were expecting another senior actress to be roped in for the film.
Today, Janhvi Kapoor on her Instagram revealed that Madhuri Dixit has been roped in for the movie. She posted a picture of Madhuri and her mother and captioned it as, “Abhishek Varman’s next film was very close to mom’s heart ….Dad, Khushi and I are thankful to Madhuriji for now being a part of this beautiful film.…”
The movie will be directed by Abhishek Varman and reportedly also star Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur. However, the other cast of the film is yet to be officially announced.
Sridevi passed away on Feb 24, 2018 in Dubai. Her funeral took place on Feb 28, 2018 in Mumbai. We are surely missing her. (Also Read: A biopic on late Sridevi starring Vidya Balan? Hansal Mehta is out with his CLARIFICATION)
