Janhvi announces Madhuri Dixit as her mom’s replacement

Sridevi’s sudden demise last month came as a shocker and we couldn’t imagine the loss Janhvi and Khushi would be undergoing after their mom’s sudden death.

Since then condolences have been pouring in and Janhvi has been strong enough to start rolling for her debut Bollywood film DHADAK or taking care of last rites of her deceased mother.

Janhvi has been posting snaps of her mom and her good times.

This morning Janhvi broke the news that her mom who was part of Abhishek Varman’s next film has been replaced by Madhuri Dixit.

She also mentioned how the film was close to her mom.

Sridevi began her career at the age of four and was a huge star in 80’s and 90’s. There was a huge competition way back when Sri, Madhuri Dixit and Jaya Prada were at the top spot.

Even in their heydays Madhuri & Sridevi were healthy contenders. Back in 1992, Sridevi was much in demand. The actress was offered to play the role of the leading lady in Indra Kumar's film, Beta. However, Sridevi preferred to not be a part of the movie as she felt that she was already doing several films with Anil Kapoor. Eventually the role went to Madhuri Dixit, who impressed with her performance in the film.

There were reports that Madhuri would be the second choice of the film once Sridevi would reject the film, the same happened at the time of DIL TOH PAGAL HAI. Initially it was Sridevi who was the first choice of the film and as she turned down the offer only then Madhuri got to play the role.

There were also reports that Sridevi was not in a good frame of mind as there were talks that Madhuri will be playing the role that she has been offered. And yet again the destiny had it, the role went to Madhuri Dixit.

With Sridevi’s sudden demise, it was clear cut that Madhuri is the one doing the role.

On work front Madhuri is busy with her Marathi production and will now be seen in Abhishek Varman’s Film.
