On the other hand, Janhvi’s three movies Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, Roohi Afzana and Dostana 2 were slated to release this year. On being quizzed about the delay in the release of her films, the Janhvi said in an interview,
“My film Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl was scheduled to release in April, and Rooh-Afza, late this summer. We were supposed to finish the shoot of Dostana 2 and release it this year and then, start shooting for Takht. But, right now, our main priority is to recover as a nation. You can’t worry about these things as there are bigger issues to deal with for all of us.”
