After ‘Gunjan Saxena’, speculation has intensified on what will be Janhvi Kapoor’s next project. Allegedly, the buzz was that Janhvi was confirmed for the Hindi remake of the Malayalam film ‘Helen’ – an exciting thriller produced by Zee Studios and her father Boney Kapoor and directed by Mathukutty Xavier alongside Anna Benn in the title role Was. ETimes has it that the remake of ‘Helen’ will be for Sridevi and Bonnie’s daughter, who made their debut with ‘Dhadak’. Today’s news on this film — and you remember that you had read it here before — is that Manoj Pahwa has been signed to play the role of Janhvi’s father. Pahwa was very excited to hear the script and it took very little time to say ‘yes’.
Boney has a very good equation with Pahwa since his Salman Khan-led ‘Wanted’ (2009), in which Pahwa played Sonu Gates. ETimes also has Janhvi shooting most parts of ‘Helen’ remake in Lucknow and some other parts of Uttar Pradesh. Shooting may begin within the next 2/3 months. Preparations are going on in full swing. Helen was about a young nurse who wishes to relocate to Canada. However, things take an ugly turn when she does not return home from work and suddenly disappears. The director of the original, Xavier, will also direct the Hindi version.
