Bollywood actress Janhvi Kapoor is all set to make her South debut with the Telugu film, Devara, where she stars opposite superstar Jr NTR. Janhvi recently posted a behind-the-scenes photo from the film’s set on Instagram. It has gone viral in no time. In the picture, Janhvi Kapoor can be seen wearing a blue saree with a green blouse, and sporting kohl-rimmed eyes. Her caption reads, “I miss the set, the team, and being Thangam,” along with the hashtag #Devara. Shikhar Pahariya, rumoured to be her boyfriend, commented, “Thangammmm,” in the post’s comments section.
Janhvi Kapoor’s involvement in the film was confirmed on her birthday this year, and she expressed her excitement on social media, saying, “It is finally happening. Can’t wait to team up with my favourite Jr NTR,” accompanied by a red heart emoji in the caption. Jr NTR responded to her post with, “Welcome on board, Janhvi. Wishing you a very happy birthday … Have a fantastic one.”
Audiences are keen to see Janhvi Kapoor’s complete transformation in the film, where she will supposedly play a village girl. In Devara, she plays the love interest of Jr NTR. Her character is tailored to match the rustic setup. Janhvi Kapoor is thus donning a girl-next-door look in this film.
For his 40th birthday this year, Jr NTR unveiled the film’s title and also disclosed the release date for Devara. The film is scheduled to hit theatres on April 5, 2024.
Janhvi Kapoor was last seen in Bawaal, alongside Varun Dhawan. She is known for her roles in films like Roohi, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, Ghost Stories, and GoodLuck Jerry. Her upcoming projects include Dostana 2 and Mr And Mrs Mahi. Janhvi made her Bollywood debut with Dhadak, co-starring Ishaan Khatter.
Jr NTR will be reuniting with Koratala Siva for Devara, marking their collaboration since Janatha Garage.
