Janhvi Kapoor, who is the current ‘Dhadak’ of Bollywood, has been on a roll, of late. The actor who ventured into the Hindi film industry with Dhadak is giving her everything to fit into the shoes of IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena for her next which is a biopic. We had exclusively reported earlier that Janhvi will be gaining weight for the movie and looks like the actor has got into the groove. A picture of Janhvi from yesterday shows that the actress has actually gained quite a lot of weight against her slender self.
If you don’t believe it, we have a then and now picture of the actress for your perusal. Moreover, we hear that the actress will be taking flying lessons for the movie which is expected to go on floors by March-end. Janhvi’s look as a pilot for the movie went viral recently. For those unversed, Gunjan Saxena was the first female IAF pilot who flew into a combat zone during the Kargil War in 1999. Because of her bravery, she was honoured with the Shaurya Chakra, an Indian military decoration.
Moving over, Janhvi will be starring in Karan Johar’s directorial Takht which features an ensemble cast consisting of Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, Anil Kapoor and Bhumi Pednekar. Takht will release in 2020,. Janhvi, in the meantime, recently attended the first death anniversary puja of her late mother Sridevi who passed away last year in February.
