Dhadak will mark Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter Jahnvi Kapoor big screen debut and Shahid Kapoor’s step-brother Ishaan Khatter’s first mainstream film. An adaptation of the 2016 Marathi film, Sairat, it also deals with similar themes of caste discrimination and honour killings.
Dhadak‘s trailer was released online on 11 June. The stakes are high for these star kids and the makers to do justice to the original blockbluster. Many industry professionals spoke out in support of these budding actors.
