Trailer for Dhadak, the debut film of Sridevi’s elder daughter Janhvi was released on Monday. In a star-studded event, filmmaker Karan Johar introduced the lead pair, Ishan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor of the upcoming movie, a remake of award-winning Marathi film Sairat.

The Hindi version of the National Award winning film has been directed by Shashank Khaitan, who is known for his other Bollywood love stories – Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. The film talks about two innocent people who fall in love without realising the vast gap between their class and economic background and highlights their struggle and their love.

Karan Johar bought the rights of Sairat after it made history by entering the coveted Rs 100-crore club. The original was directed by Nagraj Manjule and starred newbies Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar. As Dhadak got made under the umbrella of Johar’s Dharma production who decided to give the regional film a Bollywood spin, not everyone was pleased.

Here is how Twitterati are reacting to the trailor:

But then again as the trailer dropped, it got Bollywood buffs in frenzy and people couldn’t stop talking about the colourful images, the poignant cinematography and the lead pair’s sizzling chemistry. While many lauded Khatter’s performance, seeing Kapoor making her breakthrough on the silver screen, it took most Sridevi fans down memory lane.

Sample these.
