Lots of buzzes were created around the trailer of Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor’s debut film. Named Dhadak, the film also features Ishaan Khatter. These star kids are launched by Karan Johar under the banner of Dharma Productions. As Mr. Johar puts, this film is “homage” to the Marathi film Sairat released in 2016. Directed by Nagraj Manjule the film etched a permanent place in the hearts of the audience due to its compelling storytelling and unpretentious acting.

Karan Johar, prior to the release of the trailer, stated that adapting such an amazing film like Sairat is a daunting task. This is what he stated during an interview:

‘When you adapt a film like this…it is always so daunting. You know that no matter what you do and try, there will be humongous comparison.’



While Sairat was a film of simplistic charms, the trailer of Dhadak makes it amply clear that it’s directed in a grand style. Here’s the trailer:



With the release of the video, big names of Bollywood came forward to congratulate the duo. Janhvi is the daughter of Sridevi and Bonney Kapoor, while Ishaan Khatter is Sahid Kapoor’s half-brother. Seeing the stars going gaga over the trailer video of the new kids certainly hints towards the matter of nepotism in Bollywood. Here are some of the tweets from the stars:






The audience, however, came up with very different view after seeing the video. They accused Karan Johar of ruining an amazing film like Sairat. Before knowing what the netizens think, here’s the trailer:



The Twitterati are quite disappointed and that’s clear from their comments:
















Not only that, many went back to watch the trailer of the original movie and lamented how the new one is on verge of ruining the essence of the former. What do you think?
