Mom wanted me to do a film like 'Sairat': Janhvi

Share

While the original film featured Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar, the adaptation will see Janhvi and Ishaan Khatter as young lovers. The first clip of the film released today.

It was the first time that media-shy Janhvi interacted with the reporters and gave insights about her debut film.

Incidentally, Ishaqzaade, too, was loosely inspired by Romeo and Juliet and went on to become one of the biggest hits of 2012.

Dhadak, directed by Shashank Khaitan marks Bollywood debut of Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter.

At Dhadak trailer launch, Janhvi Kapoor spoke about the one professional advice given to her by late mother Sridevi. Janhvi managed to just say that she "missed" her and nearly got teary eyed. Janhvi, Khushi and Boney Kapoor had collected her award. "The biggest and most helpful tip she has given me is to work hard and to feel every emotion", Janhvi said. But my character is different from hers. "So we took a fresh approach and prepared".

Trump, Kim sign agreement to keep momentum of talks going
It's so far unclear whether the USA and North Korea will release some kind of joint statement or agreement following the sit-down. In brief remarks this morning to reporters before their private meeting, Trump said he expected to have a "great discussion".

Janhvi will be the newest face from the Anil-Boney Kapoor household to be part of Bollywood.

Actor Arjun Kapoor, who is the half-brother of Janhvi, also extended his support to her in an Instagram post.

"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, yet follow your own path & instinct".

Speaking about the concept, director saab added, "I am a Marwari so it was easier for me to adapt". Replying to Arjun, Janhvi commented, "I will make you proud".
