Janhvi Kapoor has finally arrived on the big screen with Dhadak. The film, apart from its new cast, has already created a stir because it’s a remake of popular Marathi film Sairat. The wait for this highly-anticipated film finally got over on July 20. Apart from Sridevi‘s daughter’s debut, it also stars Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishaan Khatter. After its release, the film is all about Dhadak and Sairat fans comparing the two.
Dhadak is the Hindi adaptation of the 2016 blockbuster Sairat, which is based in Udaipur. The Shashank Khaitan film is produced by Karan Johar and received a lot of love before its official release.
With Dhadak, Janhvi Kapoor has officially stepped into Bollywood. Meanwhile, Ishaan was last seen in 2017 film Beyond the clouds.
Most Dhadak and Sairat fans have been at logger heads ever since the teaser released and due to all the media hype surrounding Janhvi.
It’s to be seen how Dhadak fares compared to Marathi cinema’s highest-ever grosser. Sairat was based on two lovers who face the wrath of society because they fall prey to casteism.
Not just celebs, even the Kapoor khandaan has been showering the film and the actors with praises. Have a look at their reactions:

No reality in the movie!
Remember one thing. It’s sin to touch some Masterpieces and #Sairat was one of ‘em. There’s no reality in the movie. The only thing you can see in the movie was introducing the late Sridevi’s daughter to the industry. And to do that, they’ve remaked the classic. #DhadakReview

#DhadakReview worst movie.. Sairat was way better. Don’t waste your time and money

Deserves only half star!
I give half 1/2⭐️ to this #Dhadak just for showing courage to remake sairat. Movie will do good business in some parts of India.
It’s a Disastrous movie.

Meanwhile, Janhvi revealed the best reaction via Facebook live chat. She said, “The sweetest message I have gotten was from Anshula Didi. I think that is the most special thing anyone has ever said to me.
