Ishaan Khatter recently shared a throwback picture from the sets of the film on his Instagram story. In the picture, the Dhadak actor can be seen standing at an outdoor location with a clapperboard in his hand. Ishaan captioned his post: "Throwback to AD days." He added, "Always a student." In Abhishek Chaubey's Udta Punjab, Shahid Kapoor played the role of a rockstar who was into substance abuse.
