Janhvi Kapoor congratulates Manish Malhotra on turning director with a throwback picture featuring her late mother Sridevi | Hindi Movie News

Janhvi Kapoor, who is an avid social media user, has shared a congratulatory note for fashion designer Manish Malhotra as he is all set to venture into direction. Reports suggest that Manish will be donning the director’s hat to make a musical love story.

Janhvi took to Instagram and posted a throwback picture of Manish and her late mother Sridevi. Along with the picture, she wrote, “Congratulations @manishmalhotra05 on this new journey. Can’t wait for the world to see all the knowledge and love you have for films and see the magic that you create with it. It’s going to be so special” followed by a heart emoji. Have a look:


Earlier today, a leading entertainment portal reported that Manish will direct a love story that is set in the backdrop of the partition. The story is also written by him. The report also suggested that the film will ‘come with a splash of grandeur’ and ‘elegance’.

Meanwhile, Janhvi recently penned a heartfelt note for the legendary actor Dilip Kumar. He passed away on July 7. She had written, “Dilip Saab. I have never seen an actor embody silent dignity the way that you did in Mughal-e-Azam, or look at their lover with as much honesty and devotion as you looked at Anarkali. Never have I seen madness in an actors eyes the way that I saw in yours in Andaz, one that was founded in pain. Or do comedy like you did in Ram aur Shyam with a stillness and an ease that was never typically associated with humour. Everything you did felt like it was grounded in truth. The most dignified, evolved and perceptive screen presence I have ever had the pleasure of watching. Thank you for everything you have imparted to us through your iconic work, your wisdom and your words. You are enormously responsible for encouraging Indian cinema to recognise and value a new kind of artist. One who knows and represents the people with sensitivity and awareness. For encouraging a progress towards realism and truth and showing us that even that can be larger than life, showing us that honesty is what people fall in love with. #RIP Dilip Saab- you are truly irreplaceable. And thank you. ❤️”

On the work front, Janhvi will be next seen in ‘Goodluck Jerry’ and ‘Takht’.
