Karan Johar wants Janhvi to act alongside top stars in ‘Takht’

Mumbai: Karan Johar has taken Janhvi Kapoor under his wings. The filmmaker launched her in the industry with a remake of Sairat along with Ishaan Khattar, and the film managed to collect decent money at box office. He has then decided to give her a second opportunity in his directorial project Takht. While she may have a limited role to play in the film, Karan was keen to have her on board.

A source says, “There was a speculation of Janhvi and Alia Bhatt being part of his film with Kareena Kapoor Khan, which was eventually confirmed when Karan announced his film. Janhvi is playing a dancer and has a few scenes but Karan wanted her to be part of this magnum opus and share screen space with some top actors. So he offered this role to her.”

Janhvi is likely to begin preparations for her role as soon as the film goes on floor next year. Apart from Janhvi, Kareena and Alia the film also features Ranveer Singh and Vicky Kaushal.
