New Delhi:

Janhvi Kapoor, who is all set to make her Bollywood debut with Shashank Khaitan's Dhadak, recently said that she is aware of people's love for the "iconic" film Sairat, the inspiration for her film. She also requested the audiences to give the film a chance, reports news agency IANS. Janhvi talked about how Dhadak aims to present the same story with a fresh perspective and told IANS: "Sairat is really special and iconic film but we are trying to show that story through new perspective. We just want one chance from the audience to watch the film as we have made this with lot of hard work and honesty."

When Janhvi was asked about the difference between the 2016 Marathi film Sairatand its Hindi remake Dhadak, the actress said that the main character of the film is really different. "I think the main characters of both the films are really different from each other. Sairat was essentially based in interiors of Maharashtra and our film is based in Udaipur. So the background, language and upbringing of characters are totally different." IANS quoted her as saying.

Apart from the film, Janhvi even talked about how she is thankful for all the love that her family has received over the years but she doesn't believe in paying much attention to the pressure of maintaining the Kapoor legacy. "There is some kind of pressure but I don't want to give much attention to it. The kind of love my family has received over the years, we all are very thankful to that. I want to earn same amount of love and appreciation from audience for myself.

Other than Janhvi Kapoor, Dhadak also features Ishaan Khatter and Ashutosh Rana. The film has been produced under Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and will hit the screens on July 20.
