Well, ‘Dhadak’ is an official Hindi remake of Marathi film, ‘Sairat’. ‘Dhadak’ tells the story of two teenagers battling the rigid caste system for their love for each other.
‘Dhadak’ is directed by Shashank Khaitan, who had told Pinkvilla about his experience of working with newcomers Ishaan and Janhvi. He said, “They (star kids) do not come with burden, they are far more relaxed and chilled out. For me, even when I was working with Varun and Alia, I was working with two new actors and they never treated me as someone from outside the film industry. And I have never treated them as someone from the industry. Same thing over here, with Janhvi and Ishaan I am their director and they are my actors.”
Produced by Karan Johar under Dharma Production, ‘Dhadak’ is scheduled to be released on July 20, 2018.
