Dulquer Salmaan to be paired with Janhvi Kapoor in Gunjan Saxena’s biopic

Mumbai: Dulquer Salmaan made his Hindi debut this year with Karwaan. The actor has already started shooting for his second project The Zoya Factor opposite Sonam Kapoor and is all set to sign his next film under Karan Johar’s banner.

A source says, “Karan is impressed with Dulquer’s work, he has been willing to collaborate with the actor for a long time after watching his films. So when he was casting for a male lead in Gunjan Saxena’s biopic, his first choice was Dulquer as he thought the actor is perfect fit for the role. Janhvi is playing first woman combat warrior Gunjan in the film and Salmaan will play her love interest in it. The filmmaker is likely to officially declare the project soon.”

According to a buzz, Janhvi who made her debut with Karan Johar’s Dhadak, is about to prepare for the role and learn how to fly a helicopter once she completes Takht, which is also produced by Karan. Salmaan, on the hand, is going to complete The Zoya Factor soon which is slated to release next year.
