Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor will romance Varun Dhawan and Aditya Roy Kapur in Shiddat… – Aditya Roy Kapur replaces Arjun Kapoor in Shiddat; to romance Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi in the movie
Abhishek Varman’s Shiddat has been on the backburner since a while now, but looks like things are finally shaping up. Earlier Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor were supposed to be entangled in this love triangle, however neither of the stars had signed up for the film. A few months later, Alia was replaced with Sridevi’s daughter, Jhanvi Kapoor, while Varun signed up for the movie. Remember, we had revealed to you exclusively that Varun-Alia will take a break from pairing up in movies, looks like this was the first film to be affected cause of the deal. But, Arjun was still not convinced about his part and hence, looks like the makers have replaced him with Aditya Roy Kapur. While the OK Jaanu star will play the parallel lead along with Varun, he will also be seen romancing Jhanvi.
As a source revealed to DNA After Hrs, “Director Abhishek Varman made a few alterations in the script, as suggested by Karan. A slight change was made to the cast lineup. And following that, Varun’s still on board, but Arjun isn’t.” Though many wished to see Arjun and Varun on the silver screen together because of their fantastic camaraderie, people won’t be disappointed cause Adi and VD are really great together too.” Aditya and Varun share a bonding, too. One that grew on the Dream Team tour. Moreover, Karan, who’s close to Aditya, was keen on casting him and Varun together,” added the source.
From what we hear, the movie will hit floors later on in the year, after Varun completes Judwaa 2 and Shoojit Sircar’s thriller. In the meanwhile, Jhanvi will be groomed for her debut film while Abhishek will continue to work on the screenplay and pre-production work. While Varun has a couple of films in his kitty, Aditya is relatively free. After the debacle of Fitoor and OK Jaanu, he is currently reading scripts and trying to make better choices. He is not rushing into any films and he has agreed to work on Shiddat after a lot of thought.
