Janhvi Kapoor’ debut film ‘Dhadak’ is one of the most-awaited films of this year. Starring opposite Ishaan Khatter, the gorgeous star kid has already garnered immense popularity owing to her social media presence. Trailer for Dhadak, was released on Monday. In a star-studded event, filmmaker Karan Johar introduced the lead pair, Ishan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor of the upcoming movie, a remake of award-winning Marathi film Sairat.
Sairat was that rare film which was not only a hit with the audience, but managed to bowl over critics as well. Needless to say, Sairat set the benchmark really high for Shashank Khaitan’s Dhadak, and Janhvi Kapoor, who is making her debut with the film, has some very large shoes to fill.
Karan Johar bought the rights of Sairat after it made history by entering the coveted Rs 100-crore club. The original was directed by Nagraj Manjule and starred newbies Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar. As Dhadak got made under the umbrella of Johar’s Dharma production who decided to give the regional film a Bollywood spin, not everyone was pleased.
Sridevi’s tip to her daughter was to feel every emotion, the example of that was right there. Janhvi was not rehearsed or someone else, she was herself feeling every emotion.
All eyes, cameras and flashbulbs were on her, and she clearly had everyone’s support. However, the real test will be on July 20, when Dhadak releases. She has got a dream launch, support from her film family, media, social media and Bollywood but ultimately the moviegoers decide the fate of an actor.
