Dharma Productions, the makers of Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter’s Dhadak dropped a new poster of the film on social media just two days after its release. Over the last two days, after seeing the trailer, there has been a lot of talk about it on social media. Bollywood celebs have loved the newcomers and have welcomed them with open arms. While the other posters of the film that were shared with the audiences were more about their innocence, love and their chemistry, this one is a little on the heavier side. The poster features both the lead actors. Janhvi here is seen holding Ishaan tight and both of the actors look petrified.
Karan Johar, the producer of the film, took a moment to share the new poster on Twitter and also announced that the trailer has crossed 30 million views in 48 hours. He tweeted, “A LOVE STORY! #dhadak! 20th of July watch this unconditional story of first love….deep love…. and thank you for all the love!! 30 MILLION VIEWS IN 48 HOURS.”
This film was originally made in Marathi where the title of the film was Sairat, directed by Nagraj Manjule. The Hindi adaptation of this Marathi film is directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Zee Studios. During the launch of the trailer, Janhvi talked about how her mother, Late Sridevi wanted Janhvi to do a film like Sairat. At the trailer launch, the newbie was quoted saying, “I saw Sairat with mom at home and I remember telling her ‘I wish that this was my first film and I could do something like it’. Me and mom had this big discussion on how she wanted a role like this for me and then you (Karan Johar) called and it happened.”
