Dhadak, the Hindi language adaptation of the super hit Marathi film, Sairat is going to be released on 2018. The movie stars, Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khattar, and is directed by Sashank Khaitan. Both of them have film background, Janhvi is the daughter of Sridevi and Ishaan is related to Shahid Kapoor. His father is actor Rajesh Khattar. The casting of these two had been frowned upon by people, especially because the original had actors who didn’t come from any previlieged background. Karan Johar is launching them both, and he has been accused of nepotism before, because he usually favors to cast more unknown actors than audition for roles.
Still, the movie is being highly anticipated from many people because the original is now considered one of the best love stories of the decade, with exceptional performances from the leads. There will surely be pressure for Janhvi and Ishaan to prove themselves to so many people, which is something all star kids have to face. But they should be given a chance, since there have been reports that both were chosen based on their talents and not on the name of their families.
It will be interesting to see how the film turns out, because according to some reports, there have been quite a few changes in the story line. Everyone is excited to see new talent, and both of the leads will surely be facing a lot of scrutiny for their performances. Hopefully, the movie will prove that the new comers are really good actors and not just posers, and all the backlash will come to a close.
