Directed by Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania fame Shashank Khaitan, Dhadak revolves around honour killing and is set in Rajasthan. Shooting of the movie took place in Udaipur and Kolkata among other cities.
Janhvi lost her mother while shooting for Dhadak, however, being professional like her mom, she was back to the sets on the 13th day. "I think the whole credit goes to Janhvi and her family who supported me to finish the shoot of my film. I was ready to go back on set whenever Janhvi felt emotionally ready because at that time, for all of us, nothing was more important than her emotional security. But I am more than impressed to see her professionalism," director Khaitan told IANS in an interview.

Janhvi Kapoor on her mother Sridevi and trolls
Remembering her mother, Janhvi said: "Mumma said that I have a sweet voice. She did not watch the full film as we were only halfway through. Before any big event of my life, Mumma used to be the most involved person. Before my exams, I used to study till late at night and she would stay awake with me. She would wake up to see me off to school every day."
In an interview with Reuters, Janhvi said she understands people are pissed off but at least she needs a chance. ''I underestimated how angry people are. They are pissed off. But I can’t judge. I can understand where their frustration is coming from. It must be hard. I do feel cornered and bullied at times. Like, “why are you so angry?” Maybe I suck, but give me a chance,” she said.
Janhvi admits there are more talented people around and they feel discouraged to see a star kid bagging a film. However, at the same time, she also says that it is a big deal even for her and she can't let it go. ''I feel a responsibility towards them as well. I understand that you feel like you have been robbed of an opportunity that has been handed to me. I’m sure there are people who are more talented than me, and more good-looking than me – I promise you there are. But I am not going to pass on this opportunity just because… (trails off). It’s a big deal for me. Why the hell should I give it up?,'' she said
