Janhvi Kapoor to foray into the digital space with Zoya Akhtar’s Ghost Stories!
Gen Y star Janhavi Kapoor is all set to make her debut in the digital space with Zoya Akhtar for a Netflix anthology, according to reports. The online streaming portal is working on a series of short films in the horror genre, similar to its earlier series Lust Stories, titled Ghost Stories. Filmmakers Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Dibakar Banerjee and Zoya Akhtar are reuniting to helm one horror short film each for the same.
If reports are to be believed, Akhtar has approached Janhvi for the same and the latter is pretty stoked to work with the Gully Boy hitmaker. A source close to the project has revealed to a popular entertainment website, “Zoya has a script ready and she will soon be filming her short. It is a quirky but really scary story and this will be her first stint with the horror genre. But everyone who has heard the story has loved it. Janhvi Kapoor is the one who will essay the main protagonist in Zoya’s short. Zoya and Janhvi met and the actress was bowled over by the script. It didn’t take too much of convincing and Ghost Stories will mark Janhvi’s debut into the digital world as well. She has also alloted her dates for the same and since it’s a 30-minute short, it will be wrapped up in about ten days of shoot.”

Janhvi is working on another horror film, titled Roohi Afza, opposite Rajkumar Rao. It will be really interesting to see the young star in a mgenre which is seldom explored by filmmakers. Apart from this, the actor will also be seen in the Gunjan Saxena biopic and Dostana 2 with Kartik Aryan and a newcomer.
