Filmmakers Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap had collaborated last year for Lust Stories, a collection of four short films. Now, they are all set to unite again for a similar project, but from the horror genre titled Ghost Stories. Now, news is that Janhvi Kapoor has been finalised as the lead for Zoya Akhtar’s film, Pinkvilla reported. “Zoya has the script ready and she will start shooting soon. Ghost Stories is her first tryst with the horror genre and hers is a quirky take. Janhvi will essay the role of the protagonist”, a source told Pinkvilla.


“Janhvi loved the script and she agreed immediately to be on board. Ghost Stories will mark her debut in the digital world. Since Zoya’s film is a 30-minute short, it will require around 10 days of shoot”, the source added. Ghost Stories will see Zoya Akhtar experimenting with the genre for the first time.

This is not Janhvi’s foray into the horror genre though. She will be seen opposite Rajkummar Rao in the horror comedy RoohiAfza. Janhvi will also be seen playing the role of IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena in her biopic, followed by Dostana 2 alongside Kartik Aaryan and Karan Johar’s magnum opus Takht.
