Biopics are the flavour of the season. The filmmakers are taking the plunge to translate real life into reel without having to transpire an imagination into the script. Bringing the soul stirring stories on big screen to infuse the spirit of determination delineates the true essence of biopics.

Having tasted the success of Karan Johar's Dhadak, latest reports suggests that Janhvi Kapoor is all set to star in Karan Johar's next which is touted to be a biopic. The actress will be playing an air force pilot in the film, which is based on the life of India's first female combat aviators, Gunjan Saxena who was posted in Kargil during the 1999 war.

Informing about the same, a source said to a leading tabloid, "Janhvi has already begun her prep and has met Gunjan to understand her story and observe her mannerisms. The film is expected to go on the floors sometime next year. While Karan is producing the film, a director is yet to be finalised."

Besides a biopic, Janhvi Kapoor will be seen in Karan Johar's period drama Takht which will be her second film after Dhadak. With Dhadak and Takht, Janhvi Kapoor marks her third collaboration with Karan Johar for Gunjan Saxena biopic.

Meanwhile, Janhvi Kapoor has been roped in as the brand ambassador of a cosmetic brand Nykaa. She has also flown down to Switzerland with Bollywood's ace fashion designer Manish Malhotra to unveil the statue of her late mother and imminent Bollywood personality Sridevi.

Well, an official announcement about the biopic from the makers and the actress herself is awaited.
