- Karan Johar is producing Sridevi's daughter Janhvi's debut film
- "Sridevi had loved the idea of the movie," a source said
- Sridevi died in Dubai
Sridevi died at the age of 54. A post-mortem revealed that the iconic actress had accidentally drowned in her hotel bathtub. She was in UAE to attend nephew Mohit Marwah's wedding, along with the other members of her family. Only Janhvi, who turned 21 today, had skipped the wedding festivities due to work commitments. Karan Johar had also attended Mohit's wedding.
Janhvi's Dhadak, also starring Ishaan Khatter, is backed by Karan Johar's Dharma Production. Sridevi had never worked with him previously. Dhadak is directed by Shashank Khaitan and releases this July.
Sridevi was cremated with state honours last Wednesday in Mumbai. Over the weekend, her husband Boney Kapoor, daughters Janhvi and Khushi went to Rameshwaram to immerse her ashes. Sridevi was last seen in MOM. Sridevi's last appearance (posthumous) would be in Shah Rukh Khan's forthcoming film Zero.
