Janhvi Kapoor keeps Puri Jagannadh in waiting

Ever since she made her silver screen debut with Hindi film Dhadak, speculations have started on Janhvi Kapoor's south entry. Just like her mother Sridevi, Janhvi wants to act in both Bollywood and South Indian films. But still, the actress is yet to sign her maiden South Indian project.

Whenever Janhvi gets a chance, she expresses her love for South cinema. Janhvi Kapoor revealed multiple times that she enjoys time in the gym along with Deepika Padukone by listening to Telugu and Tamil songs. Janhvi also revealed that she likes Vijay Devarakonda from South in Karan Johar's Koffee with Karan show.
From the last few months, we are hearing that Janhvi might play the female lead in Vijay Deverakonda's upcoming film under the direction of Puri Jagannadh. Apparently, the director has also narrated the script to Janhvi. But, the actress didn't say a yes or a no, yet. This is keeping Puri wait for her and not look for another option. Even Boney Kapoor, the heroine's father hinted that Janhvi would make her debut in South but did not give proper clarity.
We might get clarity on this within a few days. Meanwhile, Janhvi is currently busy with a handful of Hindi projects like Gunjan Saxena, Takht, Dostana 2 and Ghost Stories.
