With just five days to go for Dhadak release, Bollywood producer Karan Johar shared Dhadak new poster featuring lead pair Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter. KJo has showcased another side of the story, which seemd quite intense. The poster showcases Janhvi and Ishaan who are holding a rifle in their hands in a rather panicky avatar.
Dhadak has received a mixed response from the fans. Time and again the director of the film Shashank Khaitan spoke about how the film is an adaptation of the National Award winning Marathi movie Sairat but with the release of its trailer and songs Zingaat, Pehli Baar the audience can't help but compare it with Sairat.
A LOVE STORY! #dhadak! 20th of July watch this unconditional story of first love...unconditional love....deep love....and thank you for all the love!! 30 MILLION VIEWS IN 48 hours! ❤️🙏 @ShashankKhaitan #Janhvi #Ishaan pic.twitter.com/8tFs3Ohaeo— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) June 13, 2018
In an interview with DNA, director Shashank Khaitan said, ''We have retained two songs from Sairat because they lent themselves beautifully to Dhadak. Pehli Baar is about that innocent first love and a young boy’s desire for a girl he can never have. Without any set choreography, it captures the moment when Ishaan meets Janhvi and gets attracted to her.''
Directed by Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania fame director Shashank Khaitan, the film is an official adaptation of the Marathi film Sairat helmed by Nagraj Manjule. The film has been produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Zee Studios.
Dhadak, which is a remake of Sairat will hit theatres on July 20. While it is the debut film of Janhvi, Ishaan, who is a half-brother of Shahid Kapoor has already made debut with Majid Majidi's Beyond The Clouds.
