Dhadak, which is being directed by Shashank Khaitan and which is going to be the Bollywood debut of star kids, Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter. The movie is based on the Marathi language film, Sairat, which was a blockbuster hit, although this story is going to take place in Rajasthan. The two newcomers were seen at the Victoria Memorial, Kolkata, both of them smiling and seemingly having a good time with each other. Dhadak is scheduled to be released on July 20 2018. Some other pictures from the sets of Dhadak has also been released, and it is one of the most anticipated movies of the year, as everyone is going to have a look at the acting talent of Janhvi, who is the daughter of late acting legend Sridevi.
Sridevi, the first pan Indian superstar of India, passed away last month because of accidental drowning in the bathtub of her Dubai Hotel room. Her death was one of the most shocking events, and was mourned by the whole world. This was surely a traumatic event for Janhvi, but she did return to the sets of the movie later and started to shoot.
There have been some complaints about nepotism, relating to the casting of two star kids, since the producer is Karan Johar, who has been heavily criticized for his bias for people from the industry and complete to almost very disregard of new talent in the movies. Still, one can only hope that Danhvi and Ishaan prove to be capable actors, so that they get the same criticism like other privileged actors in Bollywood.
