Arguably, Bollywood’s hottest debut pair, Jhanvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khattar will be seen romancing each other against all odds in the Hindi remake of the Marathi blockbuster SAIRAT.
As per market rumours, the movie will be titled as DHADAK. While the Marathi blockbuster was based in Maharashtra, it is rumored that DHADAK will be based in Rajasthan and will also have the undercurrent of honour killings practice that is still prevalent in certain parts of Indian society.
HUMPTY KI DULHANIA and BADRINATH KI DULHANIA fame Shashank Khaitan will be helming this volatile love story. Producer Karan Johar has bought the remake rights of SAIRAT.
It will be first outing on silver screen for Sridevi’s gorgeous daughter Jahnvi Kapoor who is already making headlines in the fashion circuit while Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishaan Khattar had already made his debut with the Iranian master Majid Majidi’s BEYOND THE CLOUDS.
The shoot of the film is expected to commence from December.
