We were the first ones to tell you that Madhuri Dixit was all set to step into Sridevi's shoes for her next film, Shiddat. Late actress Sridevi had signed Abhishek Varman's next directorial and was supposed to start shooting from mid-2018. However after the actress passed away suddenly, the makers were in a fix. They did not want to rush in to fill her role, while they did not want to delay the film either. After a week or two, the makers had approached a couple of actresses (with the blessings of the Kapoors), including Madhuri Dixit, who instantly gave a nod. And while the reports were dismissed as 'baseless', looks like our sources were bang on once again! An official announcement was made today (March 19), by none other than Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor.
Janhvi revealed on Instagram, when she posted a picture of Madhuri and Sridevi, with a caption that read, "Abhishek Varman’s next film was very close to mom’s heart. Dad, Khushi and I are thankful to Madhuriji for now being a part of this beautiful film." Isn't that such a sweet touch to the announcement? Not only do we applaud the Kapoor, but hats off to Madhuri for accepting the role too. So what do you guys have to say about Madhuri Dixit being a part of Shiddat?
