Puri Jagannadh wanted to cast Sridevi’s elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor opposite heartthrob Vijay Deverakonda but his efforts didn’t materialize. Bollywood media went overdrive in publishing that Jahnvi Kapoor not only rejected Vijay Deverakonda’s film but also turned down an offer from Mahesh Babu.
But her father and star producer Boney Kapoor has dismissed reports saying they are baseless.
Boney Kapoor said, “We (the Kapoor family) love South Indian movies. Sridevi has done so many films here and has a great relationship with Krishna Garu and Chiranjeevi Garu, and other stars. We and Mahesh Babu share great respect towards each other. Janhvi is open to doing South Indian films provided the right script falls in place. We are looking for that opportunity to arise, but so far that has not materialized. All the rumors about Janhvi rejecting movies of top stars and not wanting to work in the South are baseless.”
Janhvi may take a call if Puri Jagannadh narrates the full story. She is a fan of Vijay Deverakonda’s work but she is looking for the right script to work with him.
