Madhuri Dixit steps into Sridevi's shoes for Karan Johar's next, confirms Janhvi Kapoor

After Mom, Sridevi was set to return to big screen with Karan Johar's next. But fate had other plans. Sridevi died of accidental drowning in Dubai on February 24, and KJo later revealed that the film was set to go floors in April this year.

During a reality show, KJo revealed that Sridevi was elated when he proposed to launch her daughter Janhvi in Dhadak. Exactly a week later, he went to her residence again to ask if she can be a part of another Dharma film that he had conceptualised. Sridevi had loved the idea of the movie and they were supposed to begin shooting in April.

The film which will be helmed by Abhishek Varman also stars Alia Bhatt, Varun Drawn, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapur. And now, Madhuri Dixit Nene has stepped into Sridevi's shoes for the film.

Janhvi took to Instagram to make the announcement and also thanked Madhuri for taking up the role. She wrote, "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..."
