Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter have been in the news for a while now for being from influential families and rumours of them dating were also circulating. However, now we can all rejoice as it has been confirmed that the filming for Dhadak has begun in Udaipur! Karan Johar announced it on his Twitter, saying, “The journey of
#DHADAK begins today!! JAHNVI and ISHAAN….. @ShashankKhaitan”
Janvhi and Ishaan can be seen facing a lake while the clapperboard says “Dhadak” with Scene no. 22 and Shot 3 written on it.

Janvhi, Ishaan, director Shashank Khatian and Dharma’s team performed a pooja early in the morning, after which the muharat shot was taken.
While the original movie Sairaat was in Marathi and set in Maharashtra, Dhadak will take place in Rajasthan and have a fairly urban setting. Janvhi would be playing an upper-middle class woman while Ishaan would be playing a boy from a lower caste of society. The film will raise awareness of casteism, which is still very prevalent in India as well as the taboo of love marriages.
Since Sairaat was a very big hit among the audiences, we are quite excited for Dhadak and hope it lives up to the original!
