2018 saw Sridevi’s elder daughter, Janhvi Kapoor on silver screens and in 2019, her younger daughter, Khushi Kapoor will make her Bollywood debut. And Karan Johar, who has been the Godfather to several star-kids including Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter, will launch Khushi in 2019. Karan hinted at the same in an appearance on Neha Dhupia’s podcast, No Filter Neha.
Karan Johar also revealed that Javed Jaffrey’s son, Mizaan Jaffrey is another potential Bollywood newcomer in 2019. When asked about the stars who he thinks will make their debut in the new year, Karan replied, “Mizaan is going to be amazing, he is a potential big star and a great dancer. And Khushi perhaps, she is gorgeous and lovely.”
For the uninitiated ones, Mizaan is rumoured to be dating Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda. Navya has been often captured by paparazzi with a guy who dunked his face inside his t-shirt every time he sees the photographers. Mizaan and Naveli have been friends for quite a long-time and are often spotted chilling with each other.
As per International Business Times, on May 9, 2018, Navya uploaded a cosy picture with her boyfriend, Mizaan Jaffrey on Instagram and she painted it with a big heart saying, 'love you' and used #RelationshipGoals. In the picture, Navya is seen leaning over her boyfriend, who wrapped his arm around her and she had captioned it with two hearts. This made her fans curious about who the ‘mystery guy’ in Navya’s life is. Earlier it was reported that Navya is dating Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s eldest son, Aryan Khan.
Coming to Mizaan’s professional life, earlier the reports suggested that he is going to be launched by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. There are still no details about Khushi’s debut, but we are waiting for the things to unveil soon.

In a recent interview, when Janhvi Kapoor was asked if her younger sister plans to enter Bollywood, the Dhadak debutante replied, “That's for her to answer.” Before Sridevi’s demise, she was also asked about her younger daughter’s debut, to which she had then replied, “Yes, Khushi says she wants to get into modelling. Pehle, she wanted to become a doctor. Phir doctor se lawyer and now it's modelling. So, I am waiting for the shock to happen.”
Boney Kapoor, in an interview, talked about the change in Khushi’s career plans and her decision to enter the Hindi film industry. He had said, “I wouldn't say that I motivated Janhvi. I encouraged her to let her do what she wants. Why curb someone's natural instincts? Like for one, I didn't know until Salman (Khan) told me that Arjun has it in him to become an actor. On the other hand, my eldest child, Anshula is extremely academically inclined. And Khushi first wanted to become a model - but has now shifted her focus to becoming an actress.”
In August 2018, a Deccan Chronicle report suggested that Khushi will soon be launched in films and we might get to see her sharing screen space with none other than, ‘hotness’ personified, Shah Rukh Khan’s son, Aryan Khan! A close family friend of the Kapoors revealed to the publication, “Khushi will be launched sooner rather than later, and that too by Karan Johar. Karan’s taken over that responsibility from Boney. Though Khushi’s debut is being kept a well-guarded secret, they’ve already started looking for a suitable script.” About working with Aryan, the source further stated, “That’s Karan’s game plan. Let’s see how it goes.” (Also Read: Anshula Kapoor Shares Daddy Boney Kapoor's Favourite Child Out Of Arjun, Janhvi, Khushi And Her)
