Karan Johar is surely looking forward to launching Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter is his upcoming production Dhadak. KJo, who had previously given a huge platform to Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra, bringing them in Bollywood through Student of the Year, is set to do the same for Sridevi’s daughter and Shahid Kapoor’s brother. Dhadak is an official remake of award winning Marathi film Sairat.
Karan is backing the film through his banner Dharma Productions. The filmmaker has now penned down a love note for Jahnvi and Ishaan, which he read on his show “Calling Karan” on 104.8 Ishq FM on Monday.
“It’s a new year which means new beginnings and time for new relationship goals… Dear Janhvi and Ishaan, you are going to embark on a new journey of stardom this year. You will face many firsts in 2018 from promotion to paparazzi to link-ups and trolling to fame and failures. You are going to see it all,” Karan wrote.
“Through all of this, I just want to remind you to not take yourself too seriously and absorb every new experience because these initial days will never come back again. Janhvi, Ishaan your best qualities are that you all are still students.
“That you both really stand by your beliefs and the fact that you really don’t take yourself as seriously as I sometimes think you should. I love the fact that you are still vulnerable and innocent, please hold onto that,” he added. Dhadak is scheduled for release in July.
Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter has already worked in Majid Masjidi’s film, Beyond The Cloud. Dhadak will mark his debut in Bollywood. In 2018, Saif Ali Khan’s daughter, Sarah Ali Khan will also be launched in Kedarnath where she will be working alongside Sushant Singh Rajput.
