Janhvi Kapoor will soon be seen in Karan Johar‘s Dhadak opposite Ishaan Khatter. The trailer of Dhadak will be out in less than 48 hours from now and before that Janhvi just treated us with an adorable throwback picture of hers from what looks like a birthday bash. The Kapoor girl looks super cute in a Joker’s get up. But it is her caption with the story that shouldn’t be missed.

Janhvi’s caption on her throwback picture read, “Lesser known fact: I was Nolan’s first choice for The Joker, had to decline for Dhadak”. For the uninitiated, The Dark Knight is one of the most iconic films and The Joker is one of the most talked about characters portrayed by Heath Ledger. The actor had received an Oscar for his mindblowing performance as the Joker.

Talking about Janhvi, the makers of Dhadak will release the trailer of the film on June 11. The film is helmed by Shashank Khaitan and is an official remake of Marathi blockbuster Sairat that released in 2015. Khaitan while talking about Dhadak said it was more of an adaptation than a remake of Sairat. He said, “Sairat was an amazing movie that inspired me to take up this film, but I believe there are aspects of the Hindi film that are my own. I just hope we do justice to Sairat and people come out of the theatre happy.”
