- Dhadak is Janhvi and Ishaan's first Bollywood film
- "Catch the magic in 2018," Ishaan captioned the photo
- Dhadak will hit the screens in July 2018
Dhadak is directed by Shashank Khaitan, who also made Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania with Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. Dhadak is a remake of Marathi blockbuster Sairat and the project has been financed by Karan Johar through Dharma Productions. "Janhvi and Ishaan are great people and are very hardworking. These are the two things that I always look for in actors," Shashank told news agency PTI.
Sairat, which released in April 2016, is the story of two young lovers who belong to different castes and how they overcome the societal barriers to be together. Shashank Khaitan told PTI that the premise of Dhadak and Sairat is the same but they belong to different settings. "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 said.
