After the death of Sridevi , it the best time for the kids . Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter the making of Dhadak has been an emotional journey. We caught up with the next generation stars to find out why this film is special
When Janhvi Kapoor saw the Marathi blockbuster Sairat for the first time in her mother’s – late actor Sridevi – bedroom along with her, she was instantly smitten by the tragic love story of Archi and Parshya which also deals with caste, class and socio-economic disparity. She discussed with her mother how she would love to be part of a film with a story like this.
“The feeling was overwhelming when I sat with my mother in her bedroom and saw Sairat for the first time. I remember being invested and involved in the story, their characters and their love. It was a feeling that I cannot put into words. I was dumbfounded for the longest time. At that point, I had decided that I wanted to act but I didn’t know anything about Dhadak. I was in awe of what Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar (lead stars of Sairat) had done for their characters. I had no idea that I would get an opportunity to debut in a movie like this but I did tell my mother that I would love to go on a journey like the story of this film,” said Janhvi while talking to City Times over the phone from Mumbai.
She began to cry when she learnt that she was being considered to play the lead role in the Hindi adaptation. “Karan had actually spoken to my mom and dad and said that he will meet Janhvi formally for the film. I started to cry because I was so happy and overwhelmed that I was getting this opportunity.”
