A source said Rajkummar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor will play the role of cricketers in this upcoming project. The source was quoted as saying by media houses, “Sharan has been planning to make a film on this story for a while now and is now all ready to take it on floors. Both Rajkummar and Janhvi will be seen as cricketers in the film and will be training to learn the sport later this year. It’s a fictional tale loaded with emotions and feel-good elements (sic).”
Other future projects for Janhvi Kapoor include her father Boney Kapoor’s remake of the Malayalam film Helen, for which production will reportedly commence this month. She will also be seen in Good Luck Jerry and Dostana 2. However, the shoot schedule for Dostana 2 is yet to be determined.
