Janhvi Kapoor to make her digital debut with Zoya Akhtar and Karan Johar’s anthology ‘Ghost Stories’
Filmmakers Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Anurag Kashyap came together to make four shorts in a film called ‘Lust Stories’. In 2018, they launched Lust Stories where they shared one story each revolving around love, lust and desire. Now, they plan to reunite for another similar project, which has been titled ‘Ghost Stories’.
Interestingly, the makers also finalized the lead for their anthology. And no one other than Janhvi Kapoor has bagged the role. “Janhvi Kapoor is the one who will essay the main protagonist in Zoya’s short. Zoya and Janhvi met and the actress was bowled over by the script. It didn’t take too much of convincing and Ghost Stories will mark Janhvi’s debut into the digital world as well. She has also allotted her dates for the same and since it’s a 30-minute short, it will be wrapped up in about ten days of the shoot,” revealed a source.
Janhavi Kapoor will spin the magic on the web soon!
A source close to the development recently told Pinkvilla “The script is ready and she will soon be filming her short. It is a quirky but really scary story and this will be her first stint with the horror genre. But everyone who has heard the story has loved it.”
This won’t be Janhvi’s first project in the space. Apart from that, she is already working on RoohiAfza with Rajkummar Rao which also is a horror-comedy. On the work front, apart from the Dinesh Vijan production venture, Janhvi will also be seen essaying the role of an IAF pilot, Gunjan Saxena, in her biopic followed by Dostana 2 alongside Kartik Aaryan and Karan Johar’s magnum opus Takht. She is also in talks for two other big projects that will go on floors next year.
