After her debut film, Dhadak in 2018, Janhvi Kapoor was next seen on screen only recently, in the film ‘Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl’. But she has been in talks for a lot of projects in the meantime. A new development now states that the actress might make her debut in Telugu films with popular actor, Jr. NTR‘s upcoming film.
According to a report by Cinema Express, director Trivikram is looking at casting Janhvi as his heroine opposite NTR. The report quotes a source close to the director as saying that he wanted a fresh pairing for this film. The source also adds that he is still fine-tuning the script, and only post that will he initiate a conversation with Janhvi.
Trivikram has worked with Jr. NTR once before in the Telugu action-drama, Aravinda Sametha Veera Raghava. Janhvi has, in the past, even shared that she would like to work in Telugu cinema, and was even considered for Vijay Deverakonda‘s upcoming film, Fighter. But the role eventually went to Ananya Panday.
Jr. NTR is currently working on S.S. Rajamouli‘s RRR, and this film will go on floors only after that. On the other hand, Janhvi Kapoor was shooting for Dostana 2 before the lockdown due to the pandemic halted their shoot.
