It is a known fact that Karan Johar is providing the launch-pad for daughter of Sridevi, Janhvi Kapoor. But besides that, the filmmaker also had plans of fulfilling his dream of working with Sridevi. The superstar was supposed to feature in Karan’s much talked about production, the multi-starrer Shiddat. However, her sudden demise left the entire industry in shock. Makers of her impending projects were in search of someone who could replace the actress. One amongst them was Karan Johar.
While it is difficult to fill in the shoes of Sridevi, Karan Johar has found someone who will essay the same role as the superstar in Shiddat. We are talking about Madhuri Dixit. The two actresses namely Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi were known for their stardom in the 90s. Interestingly, Karan Johar hasn’t produced films with either of these actresses. However, Madhuri Dixit was seen in a special song titled ‘Ghagra’ in Karan Johar’s production Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.
