Recently some pictures of Sridevi’s daughter Jhanhvi Kapoor working on the sets of her new film went viral. The pics were compared to her mother Sridevi. Farah Khan, who worked with Sridevi and has now choreographed for Janhvi in Dhadak, said that it would be unfair to compare the newcomer with her mother. Farah believes every actor has a different approach towards the craft and their individuality should be respected.
“Janhvi is absolutely lovely and she is a very good dancer. She picks up really fast and to compare her to her mother is the most unfair thing I think because Sri by her age was already a veteran and this is Janhvi’s first film. I love Sri. When I started my career, she really pushed me and I used to do all her shows. But everybody is (a different) individual,” Farah said.
Sridevi, who started film career at the age of four, died of accidental drowning in Dubai last month. She was 54. Farah has recreated the popular track “Zingat” from blockbuster Marathi film “Sairat” for the Hindi remake version of Karan Johar produced Dhadak, that marks the acting debut of Jahnvi and Shahid Kapoor’s half brother Ishaan Khatter.
“What happened was when they asked me to do it (recreate the song) for the Hindi version, I was given two briefs. The director (Shashank Khaitan) wanted it like it was done in the earlier movie, very casual, very organic and Karan wanted it to be a big song,” she said.
“This year I have really enjoyed watching ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ which I thought was not only saying something but it was also very entertaining. Then, of course, you have Rajkummar’s ‘Newton’ and I think ‘Hindi medium’ was again saying a new story,” she mentioned..
Meanwhile the makers of the film Dhadak banned the use of cell phones in the sets of the film after a clip featuring Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter was leaked online, producer Karan Johar and director Shashank Khaitan have issued a no-phone-policy on the set to curb further leaks, reports mid-day.
As per the reports, the crew members will now reportedly hand over their phones before entering the set. “When the team found out about the leaked videos on Saturday night, it promptly reached out to Instagram Help Center and managed to pull one of them down. But it was too late to block the other one, as it had been circulated widely by Janhvi and Ishaan’s fan clubs by then. The video was from the Jaipur schedule of Dhadak that took place a few months ago,” a source from Karan Johar’s Dharma productions told mid-day.
