Mumbai: After a dreary wait, Karan Johar has finally made the announcement industry and fans have been eagerly awaiting.
Nagraj Manjule's 'Sairat' had gone on to create history by being the first Marathi film to gross over 100 crores with near unanimous critical acclaim. And now, KJo, has officially kicked off his official Hindi adaptation launching Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor alongside Shahid Kapoor's younger brother Ishaan Khatter.
