Shashank Khaitan’s Dhadak, the Hindi remake of the Marathi hit Sairat, marks the debut of Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor and Shahid’s half-brother, Ishaan Khattar. The movie is pretty hyped since its announcement and the movie poster has got everyone raving. If sources are to be believed, there’s another surprise; Sridevi might do a cameo in movie!
A source told a leading daily, "The role of the girl's mother in this film is brief but very important. And the woman must look graceful, dignified and be able to express her love for her rebellious daughter and be able to stand up for her against the father who is vehemently opposed to her daughter marrying a boy from a socio-economically backward section. Srideviji will add a completely new dimension to the plot." Sridevi, however, has yet to confirm the part.
Director Shashank Khaitan, said, "The basic premise is of differences in caste, honour killing and what it means to survive in that world and I feel that is the conflict that is alive all across India, you will hear stories like that. So in that sense, the basic premise (of Dhadak and Sairat) is same. But there are variations. My story is based on another set up… It is (set) in Rajasthan. It comes with its own challenges, conflicts and style of a love story."
He went on to add, "It wasn’t tough to get the poster look for the film as we were sticking to the story that we have written and the world that we have created. Even the idea of the poster was to remain as honest as possible to the film that we want to make." Shashank added, "We are adapting Sairat into the world that we want to. The focus entirely was to present them (Janhvi and Ishaan) as the characters of the film."Given the star cast of this film, we cannot wait to watch the cute pair on screen for the first time.
