‘Shiddat’ was put on hold for a while but now looks like Karan Johar is all set to work his production again and that too with an interesting star cast. From a long time discussions have been going on over the cast of the film and looks like the makers have finally decided the beauty who would be paired opposite Varun Dhawan. If rumours are to be believed then the heroine who has been finalised is none other than the hot new favourite girl of B-town – Jhanvi Kapoor. However, there’s no official confirmation made yet.Also Read - Malaika Arora-Arjun Kapoor's Maldives Vacation Is All About Love, Sea And Romance | See Pics
According to report in a leading daily, Karan Johar has opted for Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor and not his ‘Student of the Year’ star Alia Bhatt for his production ‘Shiddat’. DNA reports that Alia was the first choice for the film. She was the one to be paired opposite her SOTY co-star Varun Dhawan. Since Arjun Kapoor is no more part of the cast, there’s no problem in bringing in Jhanvi as the heroine. For those of you who don’t know, there is another alteration in the script. Jhanvi’s step-brother Arjun Kapoor is no more on board. Instead, Aditya Roy Kapur will play the parallel lead alongside David Dhawan’s younger son.

A source revealed, “Director Abhishek Varman made a few alterations in the script, as suggested by Karan. A slight change was made to the cast lineup. And following that, Varun’s still on board, but Arjun isn’t,” reports DNA. Varun’s bond with Arjun is quite strong and that would have been a plus point but changes had to be made. The source also added, “But Aditya and Varun share a bonding, too. One that grew on the Dream Team tour. Moreover, Karan, who’s close to Aditya, was keen on casting him and Varun together.” (ALSO READ: Pictures of Sridevi’s daughter Jhanvi Kapoor’s no-makeup look are going viral right now!)
