Shashank Khaitan’s ‘Dhadak’ is much awaited, as it is launching Boney Kapoor and the late Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi, and Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khattar. Many were left amazed at the duo’s performance in the trailer, and Khaitan reveals that he wanted both actors to know the film’s script like the back of their hand.
As according to Mirror, Khaitan said, “My actors were instructed to stay with the script for six months. They just kept reading and absorbing every word, not just their scenes but the entire film. I wanted them to know the script like the back of their hand so that if they needed to incorporate an extra word they would know enough to pull it off.”
As Janhvi returned to filming for ‘Dhadak’ after the sudden demise of Sridevi, Khaitan says that they wanted the sets to focus on work, “In the wake of the tragedy we tried to keep the atmosphere on the set as normal as possible, knowing that the more we tried to sympathise with Janhvi, the more the situation would affect her. We kept the focus on work and not on what had happened knowing that time is the best healer. I salute her courage.”
‘Dhadak’ is slated to release on 20th July.
