The trailer of Janhvi Kapoor’s Bollywood debut film Dhadak is the talk of the town. The film is the Hindi remake of the 2016 Marathi film Sairat, and with Karan Johar backing this version, the internet is already talking non-stop about Dhadak. Several shots were taken from the film and were turned into trolls and memes. While these were making its rounds on the internet, there was one that was shared today by Mumbai Police on Twitter that made the news.
The scene where Janhvi is questioning Ishaan saying, “Kya natak kar raha hai, mujhe dekh kyun nahi raha?’, Mumbai Police replaces Janhvi’s face with that of traffic lights and shared the picture with the caption, “Don’t underestimate the emotional quotient of traffic signals!! And their e-challan is anyways not too happy with your relationship #TrafficSignalMatters.” Isn’t it hilarious?

But Janhvi Kapoor has been handling the praise and criticism quite appreciably.
In an interview to Television this week, Janhvi said, “I’m just really thankful for the love that it’s gotten. It’s been overwhelming. I hope they [people who did not like the trailer] change their mind after watching the film.”
During the release of the trailer, Janhvi was asked about her mother to which she had a very gentle and calm reply. While the young actor was holding her emotions in, her sister Khushi Kapoor could not hold back her emotions and went on to hug her sister on stage while she was sobbing. The film directed by Shashank Khaitan focuses on a forbidden love-story in the current socio-political environment, is slated to hit theatres on July 20.
