Janhvi, who made their Bollywood debut with Dhadak, was paired opposite Ishaan, who stepped into film industry with Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds. With just one film, the duo made their audience fell in love with this romantic tale.

Thank you to @karanjohar @shashankkhaitan @janhvikapoor who have etched themselves into my life and my most prized memories forever.. and to the entire cast and crew without whom our film’s heart would not beat as it did.”
A while back, Janhvi too posted some memories on Instagram and wrote, “1 year of Dhadak. 1 year of Madhu and Parthavi. 1 year of this family, of your love, of all these memories and people that I will cherish my whole life and never let go of.

The director of Dhadak, Shashank Khaitan too posted a
collage of pictures from the sets of Dhadak. In his caption, he wrote, “1 year
of #Dhadak... So many memories and so much gratitude. @karanjohar thank you for
trusting me with this film every step of the way. Hope I made you proud. Have
recieved love and critism for #dhadak in equal measure. But the journey of
making this film has been one I will cherish all my life. I felt like a parent
for the first time, seeing two kids look at me as if I had all the answers.
Felt the most responsible I have towards their journeys as it was beginning
with me. But mostly felt blessed because I found two people who have become my
friends for life. @janhvikapoor @ishaankhatter I love you both immensely and am
so proud of how you have handled adulation and criticism in this short time.
Always praying for happiness and love for both of you.... was again blessed
with a wonderful cast and crew, who have become like family... to making movies
for the rest of my life...”
