Dhadak is directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced under Karan Johar's home banner Dharma Productions.

There was a strong buzz surrounding the film, as it marked the debut of Sridevi and Boney Kapoor's elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor.

When asked whether she believes she has become a star with the success of 'Dhadak', she said: "I don't think I am a star as of now, I am just trying to be an actor".

Bollywood film Dhadak, starring two newcomers in lead roles, has got off to a rolling start at the box office.

Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter's highly-anticipated Bollywood movie, Dhadak has minted Rs. 8.50 crores on its opening day.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh reported the film witnessed a 26.75 percent growth from Friday's gross of Rs 8.71 cr, which was a record for a Hindi movie featuring debutants in India, according to its makers.

Shashank Khaitan's Dhadak may not have managed to fully capture the essence of Nagraj Manjule's Sairat, but it is following the Marathi film's footsteps when it comes to the box office collection. The public cheered at the sight of Ishaan and Janhvi at the theatre. Go on, watch it, and if you really like it then tell us in the comment section which other film you wanna see in two minutes.
