Sridevi’s elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor made her Bollywood debut with the film ‘Dhadak’ that hit the screens on July 20. The film is an adaptation of hit Marathi film ‘Sairat’. Within a week of release, the film has already earned over Rs 30 crore at the box office and is now raking for Rs 50 crore mark this weekend.
The film has been getting positive reviews from fans and critics, and actress Janhvi is very overwhelmed with the response. While talking with a leading daily, she said, “The love has been overwhelming. More than anything else, it feels good to know that we’ve moved people with this message that we were trying to convey. I’m just happy about any form of acceptance, so I have a chance to work more and do better at what I love. To see my father (film producer Boney Kapoor), Shashank (Khaitan, director of Dhadak) and Karan (Johar, producer of Dhadak) feeling so proud and happy means the world to me.”
She further spoke about the response from her family after watching the film. She said, “Khushi was crying. She looked at me and said, ‘Why are you worrying?’ and then started crying again. Papa actually saw the film a month ago, and as soon as the screening was over, he went to the temple. That night he came to my room and held me tight and started crying.”
Khushi had also got emotional at the trailer launch of Dhadak. There are reports that Khushi too might join Bollywood in near future.
Talking about the film, Dhadak is directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced under the banner of Dharma Productions. The film also stars Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter. While it is Janhvi’s debut film, Ishaan has previously worked in the film ‘Beyond The Clouds’ which was released earlier this year.
