Produced by Karan Johar, Dhadak is all set to release on July 20, 2018. "I saw 'Sairat' with mom at home and I remember telling her "I wish that this was my first film and I could do something like it".
Incidentally, Ishaqzaade, too, was loosely inspired by Romeo and Juliet and went on to become one of the biggest hits of 2012.
After sharing a strained relationship with his father, Boney Kapoor's second wife Sridevi and their children, Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor, Arjun shed away his old grudges and stood there for his family in the tough times. It is an adaptation of the Marathi blockbuster Sairat.
Elder brother to the girls, Arjun Kapoor stands strong as a pillar of support for his sisters.
Further when asked about any tip from Sridevi, Janhvi said, "Mom's biggest tip was to work hard".
"I definitely miss her today", said a visibly emotional Janhvi. Janhvi said she has treated her character differently from the one in Sairat.
Arjun Kapoor, who is London, had written a special message for her. "I just hope we do justice to Sairat and people come out of the theatre happy", says Khaitan in an interview with Mumbai Mirror. But my character is very different from her character. "Tomorrow you will be part of the audience forever Janhvi Kapoor cause your trailer comes out".
"I just wanted you to know this profession is unbelievable if you work hard, be honest, learn to take the accolades with the brickbats, respect opinions and yet follow your own path and instinct".
Speaking about the concept, director saab added, "I am a Marwari so it was easier for me to adapt". Arjun wrote, "All the best for #Dhadak! I need to make them as proud of me".
