When you are in an adorably powerful position, you can pull this off. Karan Johar has managed to get Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt on board for his next production, to be directed by Abhishek Varman.
Remember when Sridevi’s daughter Jahnavi Kapoor posted on her social profiles that Madhuri Dixit has stepped into Sridevi’s shoes for the movie. Yes, it’s the same movie. Earlier, late actress Sridevi was a part of this movie which also stars Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead. The movie was reportedly called Shiddat but later, Karan Johar tweeted a clarification regarding the name of the movie and revealed that it is yet untitled.
So, we knew that Madhuri was going to do a KJo film, but speculations regarding the leading man of the movie continued.
But now, KJo has managed to do the unbelievable. He has got both Madhuri and Sanjay together for the movie, that is slated to hit screens in the first half of 2019.
Per reports, “Yes Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt have agreed to work together for this film and it is indeed the best news in the longest. Ever since Madhuri came on board, everyone was wondering if she would be willing to work with Dutt, owing to their controversial past. But after much back and forth and some discussions, both the actors have given their nod.”
The reports also added that, “Whatever happened between the two is past. They have moved on happily. Also, Madhuri has always believed that personal equations shouldn’t matter when it comes to professional work. It is a mature decision from both and they are both excited to work together almost after 25 years. The film rolls next month and they are aiming to release it in April 2019.”
Well, let’s wait for an official confirmation too, but we are already so amazed with this development.
