Sridevi was last seen on the big screen in ‘MOM’ which had hit the screens last year. There were reports of her starring in two films one with her ‘English Vinglish’ director Gauri Shinde and other one being a Karan Johar production venture.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Karan’s film was supposed to start rolling in April this year. Karan is currently judging a show titled ‘India’s Next Superstar’, and a source from the show revealed that the filmmaker spoke about Sridevi starring in his next. The source said, “Karan revealed that Sridevi was elated when he proposed to launch her daughter Janhvi in ‘Dhadak’. Exactly a week later, he went to her residence again to ask if she can be a part of another Dharma film that he had conceptualised. Sridevi had loved the idea of the movie and they were supposed to begin shooting in April. However, life struck with its uncertainty and Sridevi was taken away before Karan had a chance to work with her for the first time.”

According to the source, Karan also revealed that as a kid, he had a video cassette named ‘Best of Sridevi’, which had all the hit songs of the ‘Chandni’ actress. The source stated, “Karan would watch it repeatedly because he was a big fan. He also shared that Shekhar Kapoor (who directed ‘Mr India’) had accepted a challenge from Feroz Khan (who’d made ‘Jaanbaaz’), that nobody can make Sridevi look as sexy as he did in a chiffon saree. The Mr India song ‘Kaate Nahi Katate’ with her in a blue chiffon sari was shot as a direct consequence of that challenge.”

When we had met for an interview with Sridevi, we had asked her which will be her next film after ‘MOM’, to which she had replied, “Well, you all will come to know. But, definitely it won’t take four years this time that much I can promise you.” (Also Read: Throwback to last year when Sridevi wished daughter Janhvi Kapoor on her birthday)
