The trailer of Dhadak starring Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter is finally out. If you seen the trailer, you would agree the two have just nailed it with their performances. Karan Johar took to Instagram to share a new poster of the film.
He captioned the image as, "A LOVE STORY....deep unconditional first LOVE! 20th of July let the love explode! #dhadak @ishaan95 @janhvikapoor @shashankkhaitan." '
In the picture, a petrified Ishaan is seeking solace in Janhvi Kapoor's arms. The movie revolves around Janhvi and Ishaan's character Parthavi and Meet, respectively who are in love with each other. Their love is young, first and fresh and they can go to any extent to be with each other.
In an interview with DNA, Khatter cleared that, "Dhadak is an adaptation, rather than a remake." He went on to add that he's aware of the fact that adaptation haven't really worked at the box office in the recent times. "But it depends on your intention behind directing a film. Director Shashank Khaitan understood that it’s such an important film for our country. Also, it is so easily adaptable into the different cultural milieu that it was important to make this film reach out to more audiences and he wanted to do it his way," said Ishaan.
As he made sure that he watched all Majid Majidi films before Beyond The Clouds, the actor followed the same trend for Dhadak as he watched Sairat. "I loved Sairat and was affected by it. I understand the responsibility of all the hopes that come with it. But I prefer not to think about these things when I’m working in a creative environment because it may influence my performance. Since we are adapting it, there’s scope to be different. It’s also been under the public eye, so it had a different journey from Sairat," said Ishaan.
He also revealed how he came onboard for the project. "Karan sir wanted to meet me because he had seen some of my pictures and footage and wanted to cast me in a film. He got my number from my brother (Shahid Kapoor), with whom he was co-judging a show and also working on Shaandaar. He met me and we were in talks for another film. But the subject changed. He chose not to audition me and offered me Dhadak instead," Ishaan said and signed off.
