Star kids often make news for being hoity-toity even before they make it big in the industry. But Dhadak duo Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor are different, feels the film's director Shashank Khaitan. The filmmaker who will direct the newbies in the Karan Johar venture told PTI, "Janhvi and Ishaan are great people and are very hardworking. These are the two things that I always look for in actors."

Shashank has also famously directed another couple of star kids — Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. He feels that much like Alia and Varun, who are easy to work with, Janhvi and Ishaan, too, have the zeal to learn. "They do not come with a burden, they are far more relaxed and chilled out. For me, even when I was working with Varun and Alia, I was working with two new actors and they never treated me as someone from outside the film industry. And I have never treated them as someone from the industry," added the director, as quoted in the report.

Shashank Khaitan's Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania have been hits and we hope Dhadak unleashes similar magic on the silver screen. Meanwhile, here's Dhadak's first look:
