These days, the paparazzi in Mumbai gets to pick up a lot of the pretty Jhanvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter hanging out together.
While the gossip machines are having a field day about it, may we remind them that Jhanvi and Ishaan are to make their debuts together in Karan Johar’s remake of the Nagraj Manjule Marathi hit, Sairat.
Reads a source close to Dharma Productions, “Can’t star kids have fun without the paps breathing down their necks? Sure Jhanvi and Ishaan are a very good looking pair, and seeing them together ignites the curiosity of onlookers. That’s a good thing, right?”
The source continues, “But what these gawkers, oglers and careless whisperers don’t know is that Karan has asked them to spend as much time together as possible.
It’s part of their preparations for the Sairat remake. If you’ve seen the original film, you’d know that half the movie shows the couple living together. In the original, the lead pair Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar actually lived in Nagraj’s house together for many months before shooting, so that they looked comfortable together. That being impossible for Ishaan and Jhanvi, they’re being asked to do the next best thing — spend quality time with each other.”
