Helen: Manoj Pahwa To Play Janhvi Kapoor’s Father In The Remake Of Malayalam Film- EXCLUSIVE
Janhvi Kapoor is all set to play the lead in the Hindi remake of the 2019  survival story Helen about a  bright endearing young girl, the apple of her father’s eye, who gets accidentally locked in the freezer of a mall. The original film in Malayalam directed by  Mathukutty Xavier was a  big hit. It is now being remade into Hindi with Janhvi Kapoor playing Helen. Anna Ben who played the lead in the original Malayalam film was hugely applauded. Veteran actor Lal who played the other all-important role of Helen’s father was also lauded for his performance.

The role of the father in the Hindi remake has now gone to the versatile  Manoj Pawa. Apparently,  director Mathukutty Xavier did consider  Janhvi’s real-life father  Boney(who produces the  Hindi remake of Helen) to play her father in the film. But discarded the idea as being too gimmicky. Last month, we reported that for her role, Janhvi Kapoor will spend time in isolation and experience first-hand the trauma of being placed in freezing temperatures.

Janhvi Kapoor’s father and producer Boney Kapoor said that it would be a challenge for Janhvi Kapoor to be doing a survivalist drama early on in her career. He said that Janhvi would have to work really hard to convince the audience, and that if she looks fake doing it, the audience will reject the film.
