Finally, the trailer of Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter’s Dhadak is out. The launch happened in Mumbai where families of both the Dhadak actors had come to show the much-needed support. Filmmaker Karan Johar introduced his new proteges after the trailer was launched. Dhadak is the official remake of Marathi super hit Sairat which released in 2018.
Ishaan was interacting with media at the promotional interview of ‘Dhadak’ along with her co-actress Janhvi Kapoor on Thursday in Mumbai. Whether he feels any pressure to maintain his family’s stature in the film industry, Ishaan said: “I have only got encouragement and lessons from my family, so I don’t associate negative things like pressure with them.
“It’s a state of your mind. We can take expectations of the audience in the form of responsibility or pressure. Our family is in love with this profession and I am really fortunate that I have got an opportunity to prove myself and to do what I love to do… My effort will be to put my heart and soul into my work and I will try to make not only my family but the entire country happy with my work.”
Ishaan said his brother Shahid Kapoor inspires him and that he “always looks up to him”
“He is my elder brother. I have learned a lot from him even before he came into films. He has inspired me on a personal level and as an actor, I think he has done impressive work by proving himself time and again,” he said. Asked about Shahid’s reaction to the trailer of his film, Ishaan said: “He hasn’t watched the film yet. He was really happy after watching the trailer. He told me it was all good and positive and didn’t find any reason to criticize it.”
‘Dhadak’ is romantic drama film directed by Shashank Khaitan, produced by Dharma Productions and Zee Studios and stars Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter in lead roles.
