Produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Zee Studios, the film has been buzzing ever since it was announced. Based on Nagaraj Manjule's 2016 Marathi blockbuster Sairat, Khaitan's film had piqued the interest of cinegoers and critics alike.
Janhvi, daughter of late actor Sridevi and producer Boney Kapoor, plays a girl belonging to an influential, upper-caste family based in Udaipur. Her co-star Ishaan Khatter, who made his debut with Majid Majidi's Beyond The Clouds, plays her star-crossed lover who belongs to a lower caste.
Dhadak made Rs 8.71 crore on its opening day, surpassing the opening day total of Johar's Student of the Year, which amounted to Rs 8 crore.
