Sometime ago Karan Johar dropped the posters of Ishaan Khattar and Jhanvi Kapoor's film - Dhadak. The project will be directed by Shashank Khaitan
Ishaan Khattar and Jhanvi Kapoor's Bollywood debut had got the grapevine buzzing since a long time and now it's official. Karan Johar took to social media to share the first poster of the film.
The film, titled Dhadak, is the Sairat remake, to be produced by Dharma Productions and Zee Studios together.
It was felt that Dharma Productions can't be considering Jhanvi for the remake of the Marathi superhit. We all know that the young fashionista, who makes several heads turn wherever she goes, is too glamorous to play a village belle. But Jhanvi has taken up the challenge and it will be interesting to see how she rises to the occasion. Knowing her mother Sridevi's acting talent, it shouldn't be difficult for Jhanvi.
While the Sairat remake will be Jhanvi's debut in Bollywood, this will be Ishaan's second venture after Majid Majidi's Beyond The Clouds. Although it will be Ishaan's first Bollywood flick.
For those who've came in late, Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut had been considered to play the lead in Majid's flick, but both did not end up being a part of the cast.
Coming back to Sairat, it is a romance set in a caste heartland of rural Maharashtra became one of the biggest hits of 2016. The film starring newcomers, Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar, was also the first Marathi film to join the 100 crore club.
Dhadak is all set to hit theatres on July 6, 2018.
