Janhvi Kapoor’s Dhadak is running in packed houses and the young actors are winning accolades for their honest to the heart performance. Critics have lauded both Janhvi and Ishaan Khatter for their winning performance in the film and the box office reports too suggest that the masses are liking the young actors’ efforts on screen. While popular opinion counts for any newcomer, Janhvi’s case is a bit different. The movie has a lot of personal appeal for her. It has been dedicated to her late mother Sridevi who has been an integral part of the film right from the beginning. Post its release, Boney Kapoor spoke about what his first reaction was upon seeing Janhvi in the film, first time on screen. Apparently, he broke down and held his youngest daughter Khushi for a while, as he was overwhelmed with emotions. Khushi too cried after witnessing Janhvi’s intense performance.
Dhadak is directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. It is a remake of Marathi blockbuster Sairat.
