Karan Johar Announces “Dhadak”, Remake Of Blockbuster “Sairat”, With 2 Starkids

Two star kids, Ishaan Khattar and Janhvi Kapoor are entering the Bollywood with the movie titled as “Dhadak”. The film is being made under the banner of Dharma Productions as we all know that Karan Johar made an announcement of launching Ishaan and Janhvi. The flick is an official remake of Marathi movie “Sairat” which was released in 2016 and was a blockbuster. The Hindi remake will be directed by Shashank Khaitan.

The title of the flick was announced along with the release of its first poster and Zee Studios is coming together with Dharma Productions for “Dhadak”. The songs of the original movie were big hits and the viewers expect the same from “Dhadak” too. The first poster shows both the star kids touching each other’s foreheads in a romantic manner.

In another poster, we get a glimpse of Janhvi’s beauty as she can be seen in a traditional look with a mesmerizing smile. In one more poster, Ishaan is introduced to the audiences and we can see his smiling face full of innocence. Another poster was released which showed the pair in a dancing mood and it seems that we are going to watch some really good dance moves in the movie.


The director of the original movie was Nagraj Manjule and the starcast included Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar. It was even appreciated by the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan who called it a Marathi Wonder.

This is what Amitabh tweeted after watching the movie,

“Oh …!! and saw the film Sairat, the Marathi wonder… What a great cinematic experience… What a movie.”

However, the big question remains, whether these two star kids will be able to do justice with the roles as comparisons will definitely be made.

We wish Ishaan and Janhvi all the best for “Dhadak” and all their future endeavours!
