Confirmed! Madhuri Dixit to take over SriDevi's next film, Shiddat


Dharma Productions project, starring the late legendary actor SriDevi and Sanjay Dutt is back on track but with a different face. Helmed by Abhishek Varman, the film will now star Madhuri Dixit in the lead role. Confirming the news, Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor took to her Instagram account and 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.”

Shiddat would have united Sridevi and Sanjay Dutt after 25 years 

The film is a partition drama and the idea germinated from Karan Johar's dad, late Yash Johar. However, all of this remained just a dream till KJo handed over the project to Abhishek, who previously directed Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt's 2 States

Interestingly, Madhuri and Sridevi were touted as the biggest rivals and contemporaries of the 80s-90s when the two ruled the Hindi cinema. As far as the film is concerned, reports suggest that apart from Madhuri, the film will also star Sonakshi Sinha, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt.

On a related note, Janhvi Kapoor is gearing up for the release of her Bollywood debut Dhadak, co-starring Ishaan Khatter. The film, directed by Shashank Khaitaan and produced under Dharma Productions, will head to the theaters on June 1 this year.
