After the lukewarm response to ‘Dhadak’ starring Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter in 2018, it seems Karan Johar is working on its sequel featuring Siddhant Chaturvedi and Triptii Dimri.
A source told PinkVilla, “Dhadak was essentially an intense tale of love, with two protagonists fighting the society to live together. The filmmaker believes that this zone of going against all odds for love has potential to get franchise value. After contemplating on several subjects, the filmmaker has greenlit a subject that qualifies to be a sequel to Dhadak.”
The source further added, “The film will be directed by Shazia Iqbal and marks her debut as a director. Both Siddhant and Triptii are excited to feature in a raw and intense love story. The prep work will begin soon.”

Commenting further about the film’s sequel plans, the source said, “Before taking the film on floors, there will be script reading sessions and acting workshops for the two leads. The film requires them to be in a rooted set up, with slight raw treatment to the story, which can only be polished through workshops,” while adding that a top actor will come on board to play the antagonist as the girl’s father. The report signed off by quoting the same source saying, “Apart from the father, some other characters also warrant the presence of credible actors. A cast will be put together in a month’s time.”
