Actress Janhvi Kapoor, who currently has multiple projects under her kitty, has reportedly signed one project, which will be produced by father Boney Kapoor. This film will be the remake of hit Malayalam thriller Helen, which featured Anna Ben in the lead role. As per the PinkVilla report, a source said, “Janhvi and Boney had announced a film called the Bombay Girl earlier this year. They were supposed to do that film first. But now, Boney has bought the rights to remake the popular Malayalam film Helen in Hindi. Janhvi will play the lead role in the Hindi version and step into the shoes of Anna Ben from the original.”
The source further added, “The film will be jointly produced by Boney Kapoor with Zee Studios. The pre-production work is currently on and the team plans to go on floors sometime in the first quarter of 2021.”
Meanwhile, she will be next seen in Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, which will premiere from August 12 on Netflix. Apart from Janhvi Kapoor, the film also features Pankaj Tripathi in a key role, who plays the actress’ father in the film. Talking about his character, Pankaj earlier said, “I liked the character very much of playing father to Janhvi Kapoor in the film. A great bonding is developed between us while working on the sets. I am having a lot of fun while shooting for the film. Janhvi is a very sincere and well-behaved actress. She respects me a lot and I too respect her for the sincerity and commitment towards her work. Sharan is a very talented director and is well versed with his craft. It’s an opportunity working under Dharma Productions. They leave no stones unturned to get the right things on board.” Anyway, do you think Janhvi Kapoor will do justice to that character? Tweet and let us know @bollywood_life.
