Sridevi‘s demise left the world of Bollywood in a state of shock, with a void which would forever be felt. The impact was felt even more as the actress had made a comeback with ‘MOM’ a good five years after her last movie ‘English Vinglish’, and was in the process of signing more projects.

One such person who was willing to bring Sridevi onboard for his project, was director-producer Karan Johar. Karan was looking for a good script for her. However, the ‘Chandni’ actress’ untimely death put a stoppage to all the plans and projects.

However, seems like there was something brewing and Sridevi was planning to collaborate with Karan on a project, which unfortunately won’t happen now.

Recently, Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor took to her Instagram and confirmed the news of Madhuri replacing the late actress, in the film.

The film stars Sanjay Dutt too, and that’s where the blockage lay for the makers. While earlier, Sridevi was there alongside Dutt, there was no issue, but now with Madhuri onboard, complications were bound to occur, given the history Sanjay and Madhuri share.

As we know, Madhuri and Sanjay were rumouredly a couple, back in the 90s, and the relationship ended with Sanjay’s conviction in the 1993 Mumbai Bomb Blast Case. Hence, it does not come as a surprise when sources say that Sanjay is not to work with his ‘Khalnayak’ co-star, as the two do not share a cordial relation.

So, if not Sanjay, then who?

Well, according to sources, the makers of the film are planning to rope in the ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ actor Anil Kapoor in place of Sanjay Dutt, opposite Madhuri Dixit Nene in the film. Though the makers till now haven’t made any official announcement related to the film but looks like they are dead serious this time as the film’s casting has stretched too much.

If things go well, than we will be seeing Anil and Madhuri on the big screen after a long time, not in one but two films. Yes, this will be the second film along with ‘Total Dhamaal’, wherein we will see the two stars coming together after a hiatus.
