Sridevi’s daughter, Jhanvi Kapoor’s debut has been riddled with a lot of speculations over the past two years. The Hindi adaptation of ‘Sairat’ is titled ‘Dhadak’. ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ and ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’ fame Director Shashank Khaitan will be spearheading the project. Earlier today, the filmmaker got us all excited and looking forward to 5 pm when he put out a video announcing about launching two new faces. He gave us ample of hints to know what was in store for us. The Hindi remake of Sairat is named Dhadak and the film is all set to go on floors in just a few days. The lead stars Jhanvi and Ishaan have already left for Jaipur, where the first schedule of the film will roll.

Going with the original plot of the film, Jhanvi will be playing a high-spirited, tom-boyish girl. We have earlier shared a video of the young diva taking biking lessons for the role. Unlike ‘Sairat’, the plot of ‘Dhadak’ will be set in Haryana, though the basic premise of caste-divide will be the same. We are so excited for this film to go on floors. The movie will release on July 6, 2018.
