Dhadak is a Hindi adaptation of the Marathi hit film Sairat (2016) which tells the story of a romance between an upper caste girl and a lower caste boy, set in the countryside. One can’t help but notice the comfortable chemistry between the two actors in the posters. The portrayal is akin is to the Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh starrer Ram-Leela in the sense that the couple have a playful and flirty chemistry. Janhvi’s lehenga choli and Ishaan’s bandhani shirt are also reminiscent of the movie.
Dhadak is being directed by Shashank Khaitan who has earlier worked on films like Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. Despite the talk of nepotism in Bollywood, after the release of the poster, audiences seem keen to take a look at the next generation of star kids. The Karan Johar produced Dhadak is set to start shooting in December and its release has been scheduled for July of 2018.
