The upcoming project is being produced by Boney Kapoor, which raises the question if any of his kids will be cast in the film. While the director simply said that the cast was not yet decided, Zafar spoke about the possibility of Janhvi Kapoor being cast in the film.
Interestingly, Zafar in his conversation with ETimes spared a few details on actress Janhvi’s involvement in the project and revealed if Janhvi would step into her mother’s shoes for this upcoming franchise.
He admitted, “Early days still, but Boney Kapoor will be really happy if that happens.”
The upcoming film will reportedly be ‘very heavy on special effects’.
