Janhvi Out, Ananya In For Vijay’s Debut

Vijay Deverakonda’s much awaited Bollywood debut has been hitting headlines even as the film just entered its shooting phase. While the film was in headlines over its title last week, the latest reports are rife that Janhvi Kapoor has been shown door.

Janhvi is quite excited to romance Vijay and has openly stated this on camera. In fact, there were also rumours that the whole shooting has been shifted to Bombay only to accommodate Janhvi Kapoor in the movie.

Apparently, Karan Johar and Puri roped in Ananya Pandey of Student of The Year 2 fame to romance Vijay. This is shock to Vijay’s fans as well as Sridevi’s Telugu fans who hoped to see Sridevi’s daughter making her Tollywood debut opposite Vijay in Puri’s Fighter. While reasons for Jhanvi replaced by Ananya are not known, it is speculated that Janhvi’s high remuneration could be the main reason.

Since Karan is quite particular about the budgets, he said to have recommended Ananya’s name to Puri and Puri, Charmi readily agreed to cast Ananya. Karan is presenting the film in Hindi. The film is not just launch for Vijay in Hindi, it is like a relaunch for Puri in Bollywood.
