Karan Johar is venturing into the world of a sports film, Mr. and Mrs. Mahi, starring Rajkumar Rao and Janhvi Kapoor. Slated to be released on the 15th March, 2024, this movie is based on the world of cricket.
Directed by Sharan Sharma, this will be a good one to look out for by our sports fans. Indians love and appreciate sports films which is evident by how much the movie ’83 was appreciated which had Ranveer Singh playing the role of Kapil Dev. If you’ve seen Shabaash Mithu, the Taapsee Pannu starrer movie where she played the role of Mithali Raj who played wonderful cricket, also won laurels.
This Bollywood film will show the real-life story of MS Dhoni, the cricketer and former team India captain and his wife Sakshi Dhoni. The movie is currently under production.
In an interview with Janhvi Kapoor, about her role in this movie, she felt that the movie had created a bawaal in her life. She revealed she had incurred few injuries while shooting and things were often rough. Quoting her, “I shot Mr. and Mrs. Mahi. I think doing that caused a bawaal in my life because of my injuries and various other reasons. And it went on for a while and so things kept getting planned and then cancelled and moved around. So, it was changing a lot of things in my life because it was a very intense film to shoot and it was physically demanding. So, me and Sharan who are very close we’d also get into fights and it was a very hectic time, I think.”
