Sridevi’s elder daughter Jhanvi Kapoor is making Bollywood debut with a Karan Johar film, father Boney Kapoor confirmed.

Speaking to a daily, Boney Kapoor said that Karan Johar has been in talks with them and they have given consent to the filmmaker to helm Jhanvi’s launch pad.

It was being said that the film may be a Hindi remake of Marathi super hit Sairat.

“Yes, Karan has been talking to us about a film for Jhanvi and we’ve given consent. But we don’t know which project it would be. Since Karan has recently acquired the remake rights of Sairat it is being presumed that our daughter would be launched in this project,” Boney Kapoor told to DNA.

It will be a dream come true project for the 19-year-old Jhanvi, who is taking acting training from the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute, Los Angeles.

The film maker sees his yesteryear superstar wife Sridevi in his daughter. “I see in my daughter the same focus and concentration on her chosen career as her mother,” he said.

“It’s nevery easy for star kids being unfairly compared to their legendary parents, it’s never easy for star kids to make a place for themselves as they are invariably compared with their legendary parents. I hope Jhanvi won’t be compared with her mother, though,” Boney Kapoor added.
