News agency PTI reports that filmmaker Karan Johar had announced the project last year and Sajid Nadiadwala was co-producing it. Abhishek Varman has previously directed Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor's 2 States for Karan Johar.
Karan Johar too posted an update on the film and said that the film is not titled Shidhat.
Some clarifications!!! Yes...we are honoured and humbled to have @MadhuriDixit on board for @abhivarman 's next! NO the film is NOT titled SHIDHAT! Yes the film will Commence shoot in mid April! The films final cast and credits will be announced soon!— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) March 19, 2018
Janhvi is also being launched by Karan Johar and her debut film Dhadak is slated to release this July. Earlier this month, Mumbai Mirror had reported that Sridevi had signed a film with Karan Johar, which was scheduled to go on floors from April. "Karan revealed that Sridevi was elated when he proposed to launch her daughter Janhvi in Dhadak. Exactly a week later, he went to her residence again to ask if she can be a part of another Dharma film that he had conceptualised. Sridevi had loved the idea of the movie and they were supposed to begin shooting in April," source told Mumbai Mirror.
Sridevi was cremated with state honours in Mumbai. She is survived by husband Boney Kapoor (a filmmaker) and daughter Janhvi and Khushi.
Sridevi's last film was MOM. Her last appearance (posthumous) would be in Shah Rukh Khan's forthcoming film Zero.
