Jhanvi Kapoor is reportedly debuting in the Hindi remake of Marathi film Sairat, in which she will reportedly co-star with Shahid Kapoor's brother Ishaan Khatter. Ishaan, who has assisted in several of Shahid's films, debuted in Iranian director Majid Majidi's Beyond The Clouds, earlier this year. Beyond The Clouds is awaiting release in India but it has toured several international film festivals.
Deccan Chronicle's source also said that the entire cast of Karan Johar's Student Of The Year 2 hasn't been locked yet. In June it was reported that Jhanvi Kapoor has signed a three-film deal with KJo's Dharma Production, which means that there is a possibility of her starring in Student Of The Year 2 too with tiger Shroff. "Karan has also not made an official announcement on Student of the Year 2 with Tiger Shroff, as the girls in the film have also not been finalised," the source said.
As of now, Karan Johar has his hands full between the promotions of upcoming film Itefaq and the beginning of Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan and Alia Bhatt's film Brahmastra (to be directed by Ayan Mukherji).
