The much-promoted film ‘Dhadak’ is finally releasing tomorrow, that is, on 20th July. The film stars Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor and is directed by Shashank Khaitan. The special screening of the film was held last night in Mumbai where several Bollywood stars marked their presence. Ishaan Khatter arrived with mom Neelima Azeem, Brother Shahid Kapoor, and Bhabhi Mira Rajput.
On the other hand, Janhvi Kapoor came with Dad Boney Kapoor, and Siblings Arjun Kapoor, Khushi Kapoor, and Anshula Kapoor.
Janhvi had earlier told that she is nervous about this film as it is coming closer. And why not? After all, she has to carry forward the legacy of her mother and the entire Kapoor clan. This film is special for Janhvi and the entire family. Firstly, because it is her debut film, and secondly because her mother Sridevi is not there to witness the work of Janhvi and to bless her, and support her, and criticize or praise her.
Last night, after the screening of the film, Janhvi became emotional after her Dad Boney Kapoor and her Arjun Bhaiyya hugged her.
The screening took place at YRF studios. We witnessed the presence of Madhuri Dixit, Karisma Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, Karan Johar, Soha Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Neha Dhupia, Angad Bedi, Rekha, Kartik Aryan, and Arjen Bijlani.
In a recent interview, when she was asked about whether she always aspired to be an actor since childhood, she said, “As a child, I didn’t think of being an actor, even my mom didn’t want me to. However, I think in my head I already thought that I was an actor. In my school days, people would think that I was schizophrenic, because I would make up these wack stories. I remember, calling up my friend and saying that I am a secret agent and that I need to spy on someone in school. They would believe me. Once I told my friends that Shakira has flown down to Mumbai to personally teach me belly dancing, so now, I can teach all of you. My friends’ parents called up mom and asked, ‘You got Shakira down? How is she? That’s so cool, could you send Janhvi home so she can teach my daughter’. My mom would be amused by all my stories. I was like this comedy character at home.”
