Much before Janhvi Kapoor had made her debut in Bollywood, many had thought that dad Boney Kapoor will launch her into films. But the actress was then launched by Karan Johar in Dhadak. The film went on to do well at the box office and established her as a potential star. Post that, Janhvi was in news for several films that were being offered to her - some she signed and some that she couldn't. But now, we can exclusively tell you that Janhvi will unite with her dad Boney for a film that goes on floors next year. 

A source tells us, "Janhvi and Boney had announced a film called the Bombay Girl earlier this year. They were supposed to do that film first. But now, Boney has bought the rights to remake the popular Malayalam film Helen in Hindi. Janhvi will play the lead role in the Hindi version and step into the shoes of Anna Ben from the original." Helen revolves around the life of an ordinary suburban girl who suddenly disappears, leaving her loved ones in a desperate search as she must face the ultimate battle - the one for her life.

Just stop being negative. She is a young girl, if she doesn't have talent obviously she will vanish in some time. ESHA DOEL / ZAYED KHAN/ TUSHAR KAPOOR/ TANISHA CHATTERJI/ UDAY CHOPRA/ KARAN DOEL / and the list is endless. They will fade out if they don't have talent.

Helen has practically no dialogues and Anna's emotive face and natural acting made the film so beautiful. Jhanvi's non emotive face which will be plastered with make up I'm sure, will make it a nightmare to watch.
