Janhvi Kapoor is one busy girl these days. Though she's not shooting for any of her new projects currently, she's busy prepping for them. The actress we learnt has signed a Karan Johar movie, that's a biopic of IAF pilot, Gunjan Saxena. Yea, she also has Takht in her kitty which will go on floors next years but before that Ms Kapoor will take some flying lessons for her first ever biopic. The movie will revolve around one of India’s first female combat aviators to be posted in Kargil during the 1999 war. As per reports in Mumbai Mirror, the actress is all set to start learning flying lessons and she'll even meet Gunjan to understand her life and take some vital inputs for her behaviour. Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan’s Impeccable Style Statements Prove They Are the New Fashionistas in Town – View Pics.

According to a source close to the Dhadak actress, “Janhvi will start prep in the next few days with basic flying lessons and sessions on how the Indian Air Force works and lives. She spent time with Gunjan a few months ago and will be meeting her again to understand her story better." Though no further announcements are made on her biopic, the actress is expected to start shooting next year, probably after TakhtJanhvi Kapoor Reveals How Sister Anshula Received Rape Threats Over a Game in Koffee With Karan 6 and it is Alarming!

Meanwhile, Janhvi is also busy learning Urdu for her next multi-starrer, that also stars Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vicky Kaushal, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor. There are rumours that she plays Hira Bai while Ranveer is Dara Shikoh, eldest son of Shah Jahan and Vicky is Aurangzeb. Since the movie revolves around the Mughal era and knowing how particular such period dramas have to be, Janhvi has been asked to learn Urdu and a tutor has been appointed for the same. The newbie is also in talks to star in an espionage thriller with Varun Dhawan that will be directed by her Takht director, Shashank Khaitan.
