After Jr NTR Janhvi Kapoor to star opposite Ram Charan and Suriya


Rising starlet Janhvi Kapoor is ticking off milestones in the Southern film industry, with a slate of high-profile projects in the works. Daughter of the iconic actress Sridevi and producer Boney Kapoor, Janhvi has been embracing her debut in the Telugu film ‘Devara’ with open arms. The movie pairs her with South superstar Jr NTR and Bollywood’s own Saif Ali Khan in a prestigious pan-Indian cinematic venture.

The buzz around ‘Devara’ has been building, as Janhvi Kapoor steps into the limelight, hoping to mirror her mother’s remarkable success in South Indian cinema. Enthusiasm for the film has skyrocketed, with Kapoor Jr. finding herself alongside leading men who have carried the legacy of Telugu cinema forward. In a recent chat with iDream Media, Boney Kapoor could hardly contain his excitement, confirming that Janhvi is set to enter the Telugu film arena with a ferocity hitherto seen only in her Bollywood ventures.

“My daughter has already wrapped up her shoot for a film with Jr NTR,” said Boney Kapoor, pride evident in his voice. “She has immersed herself in the cinematic culture here and can’t wait to begin her next project with Ram Charan. They are incredibly talented individuals, and she feels fortunate to work with them. She’s also preparing to share screen space with Suriya in the near future.”

Janhvi Kapoor’s choice of projects indicates a seriousness about diversification beyond Hindi cinema, much like her late mother Sridevi, who captivated audiences across linguistic divides. Janhvi’s debut with director Buchi Babu Sana, known for ‘Uppena’, could not have been more fitting.

Family ties run deep, with Boney Kapoor expressing his longstanding connection to Hyderabad, where he envisioned purchasing a home due to its significance in Sridevi’s professional journey. The culinary joys of the city also linger in his heart; nonetheless, circumstances have since altered those plans.

The agenda taking shape for Janhvi Kapoor is an emotional one. She reminisced, during Agenda AajTak 2023, about her eagerness to collaborate with Jr NTR, drawing connections to her mother’s storied career. “Working with Jr. NTR sir feels like completing a circle, bringing forth the memories and stories my mother shared about her collaboration with his grandfather. It’s an exhilarating feeling to connect to my roots in such a poignant way,” she remarked.

‘Devara’ promises to be an opus, unfolding in two segments under the direction of Koratala Siva. Anticipation has only been amplified by the film’s background score, ‘All Hail The Tiger’, which has gone viral, stoking the fires of fan excitement. A combined production effort by Yuvasudha Arts and NTR Arts, with Nandamuri Kalyan Ram presenting, this project is benefitted by Anirudh Ravichander’s musical composition and R Rathnavelu’s visual craftsmanship.

With ‘Devara Part 1’ slated for release on October 10, 2024, Janhvi Kapoor’s entry into the South Indian cinematic landscape isn’t just a professional move; it’s a deeply personal homage to her lineage. As she forges ahead, emulating her mother’s versatility across languages and regional film industries, the captivating actress is all set to charm new audiences with her talent and reverence for the legacies that have shaped her.
