If you don’t know that Janhvi Kapoor and Ishan Khatter new release Dhadak is based on popular Marathi superhit Sairat. Here is a short intro of Sairat stars. “The basic premise (of Dhadak and Sairat) is same. But there are variations. My story is based on another setup. It is set in Rajasthan. It comes with its own challenges, conflicts, and style of a love story.”
If we talk about Sairat, it stars Akash Thosar and Rinku Rajguru. Rinku Rajguru aka Archie from Sairat was the girl who ruled the heart of Maharashtra at the time of her film’s release. And why not? A female protagonist in a Marathi movie who rides a Royal Enfield… well, that’s the girl you all look up to, or guys want to be associated with, right? That was Rinku in Sairat for us.
If we talk about her role, she was bold, smart and quite daring. They say the first impression is the last impression and she just hit the bullseye. Audiences rooted for her for she was that daring lady who initiated every move. She was the one who broke the usual stereotype of a boy asking a girl out in the movies. Her raw looks were the selling point of the film and the fact that the makers let her be herself worked in the movie’s affair.
Rinku isn’t your quintessential leading lady. She was slightly on the chubbier side, and she was unapologetic about it. However, that didn’t motivate her to stay in her la la land for she knew she had to work hard on it. She thought it would be great if she undergoes a makeover and not for what viewers want her to be.
Rinku today looks like a diva, like any other actresses in her industry and we won’t be shocked if her room is flooded with numerous scripts from different filmmakers. It’s a delight to see her present a new version of herself, though we miss her chubbiness.
Dhadak is the remake of Sairat and we hope Janhvi Kapoor justifies the role of Rinku in Sairat. As it would be difficult to see a well-toned Janhvi step into Rinku’s shoes in Dhadak – a remake of Sairat.
