Jhanvi Kapoor, the most promising star kid (daughter of veteran diva Sridevi), is likely to sign her second film much before her debut film releases. And, the film could be the Bollywood remake of NTR’s “Temper”.
According to reports, Jhanvi has been finalized to play the female lead role in ‘Temper’ remake. Kajal played the heroine in Telugu. It was Karan Johar, the man who is mentoring Jhanvi, who decided to cast her in the film since he is co-producing it. Titled, “Simmba”, the action entertainer will be directed by Rohit Shetty, one of the most successful commercial directors in Bollywood, and stars Ranveer Singh in lead role.
It is heard that Sridevi initially had reservations in letting her daughter act in ‘Temper’ remake considering the limited role of heroine. Karan however promised her that heroine’s role will be enlarged in the Hindi remake, and got her green signal.
Jhanvi is currently shooting for her debut film, ‘Dhadak’, a rustic and intense love story. Karan reportedly convinced Sridevi that Temper remake is the perfect masala entertainer that could launch Jhanvi in top league, courtesy the excellent subject and Rohit Shetty-Ranveer Singh combo.
