Sridevi's demise was a huge loss for the Indian film industry. The entire nation mourned and sent support and love to Boney Kapoor, her husband, and daughters, Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor. One of the things that were left unanswered was the fate of Karan Johar's next movie directed by Abhishek Varman, also remained unknown. Sridevi was supposed to be part of the project along with the rumoured cast - Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha and Sanjay Dutt. However, a recent post by Janhvi Kapoor on Instagram has finally put an end to all the questions regarding who would be taking over Sridevi's role. It's none other than her close friend, Madhuri Dixit-Nene.
