Jhanvi became a sensation and drew a lot of attention, ever since the news of her debut broke. It has been officially announced that she will be cast opposite Shahid Kapoor’s younger half-brother Ishaan Khattar in the upcoming film.

As per reports Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter – Jhanvi will soon start the shooting of the film along with Ishaan from December 1.
