B- Town has always welcomed star kids with open arms. It is once again ready to welcome another set of star kids this year with Karan Johar’s upcoming production, Dhadak. The film marks the debut of late actress Sridevi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor. It also stars newbie Ishaan Khatter who is Shahid Kapoor’s brother. The fresh pair is pretty stoked to see the audience’s reaction to the Sairat adaptation. They are currently touring around the country promoting the film.
Meanwhile, there was a special screening held at Yash Raj Studios on July 18 where A-list celebrities came to support the newbie stars. Two of close friends of late actress Sridevi, Rekha and Karisma Kapoor, too came to support Ishaan and Janhvi and give them their blessings for highly awaited Dhadak. The film, which is a day away from its release, is definitely one of the most anticipated films of the year. A video has been doing the rounds of social media wherein Rekha is seen giving blessings to Ishaan Khatter whereas Karisma is seen giving hug to debutante Janhvi Kapoor.
Ishaan Khatter’s entire family- brother Shahid Kapoor, sister-in-law Mira Rajput, dad Rajesh Khatter and mom Neelima Azeem- all came to support him at the screening. Janhvi Kapoor’s squad- sisters Anshula Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor, dad Boney Kapoor, friend Sara Ali Khan who is also making her debut this year- all were in attendance. Besides them, Sonakshi Sinha, Malaika Arora, Neha Dhupia, Angad Bedi, Karan Tacker were amongst other guests.
