Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter are running pillar to post promoting the movie. While Dhadak marks Janhvi Kapoor’s debut, it is Ishaan Khatter’s first true-blue Bollywood film. The actors were recently in Delhi to promote their upcoming film. Janhvi has been the centre point of these promotions as fans are really excited to watch the Bollywood legend’s daughter make her debut on the big screen.
In one interview, the Dhadak actress was asked who she likes better, Ranveer Singh or Ranbir Kapoor? After thinking for a while, Janhvi replied that if she had to pick between one of them, she would go with Ranveer. The reason being, she loved watching Ranveer in Bajirao Mastani and had a mesmerising experience.
However, her co-star Ishaan Khatter chose Ranbir Kapoor over Ranveer Singh. “I would pick Ranbir Kapoor and my favourite performance of him is in his film Tamasha,” he said. Almost immediately, Janhvi reacted to it saying: “Oh S**t! Yeah.” Well, it’s too late now Janhvi.
The two were even asked to choose their favourite actress among Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone and they both unanimously picked Deepika. Well, no one would think that they picked Deepika for her performance in Bajirao Mastani alongside Ranveer Singh. But Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter revealed that it was her performance with Ranbir Kapoor in Tamasha that made them go WOW.
Directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar, Dhadak is an adaptation of the Marathi film Sairat. Recently, a special screening of the movie was hosted last which was attended by Janhvi’s family. Another special screening was organised by the filmmakers on Wednesday night which Janhvi and Ishaan attended with their respective families and senior colleagues. Bollywood biggies like Madhuri Dixit, Malaika Arora and Karisma Kapoor also attended the screening.
The film will hit the screens on July 20.
