Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor's debut film Dhadak has finally hit the floors. The film, which also stars Shahid Kapoor's half-brother and Beyond the Clouds actor Ishaan Khatter, is the official adaptation of the Marathi film Sairat, and is being directed by Shashank Khaitan. Dhadak, one of the most anticipated films of 2018, is produced by Karan Johar, who received a lot of criticism for once again launching two star kids.
The shoot of the film has already started. Without disclosing the location, the was announced on social media by the film's office Twitter handle.
“And so it begins!✨ #Dhadak @karanjohar #Janhvi #IshaanKhatter @ShashankKhaitan @ZeeStudios_,” read the post that came alongside a picture of the film’s script.
Janhvi is facing the camera for the first time with this film, while Ishaan has already starred in Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds, which was premiered in the recently-concluded International Film Festival of India (IFFI). He is gaining accolades for his work in the relationship drama, and has also been awarded the Best Actor prize at the fifth International Bosphorus Film Festival in Turkey.
Sairat was a love story that dealt with casteism in rural Maharshtra. It starred Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar, who were highly applauded for their performances. The makers of Dhadak are adapting it into a different world though, and we are very curious to see what finally unfolds on the screen.
