Dhadak trailer: Twitterati underwhelmed by Bollywood adaptation of Marathi film Sairat
Dhadak will mark Sridevi and Boney Kapoor's daughter Jahnvi Kapoor big screen debut and Shahid Kapoor's step-brother Ishaan Khatter's first mainstream film. An adaptation of the 2016 Marathi film, Sairat, it also deals with similar themes of caste discrimination and honour killings.
Dhadak's trailer was released online on 11 June. The stakes are high for these star kids and the makers to do justice to the original blockbluster. Many industry professionals spoke out in support of these budding actors.

However, it has received considerable flak from social media. Twitter users feel that many details and nuances of the original film have been lost in translation. Some even criticised Jahnvi Kapoor's acting not being up to par with Rinku Rajguru's performance in Sairat.
Besides the very OBVIOUS problems with Dhadak, we should all be EXTREMELY ANGRY TO SEE THEM MAKE ZINGAT THEIR OWN AND IN RAJASTHANI. FUUUUCKK THIS ALL TO HELL. — Sonia Mariam Thomas (@SoKneeOh) June 11, 2018
The most important thing that worked for #Sairat is that it was earthy with natural performances! #Dhadak takes away exactly those things! Don't know how whole movie has shaped up?? Definitely not on my must watch list! — ☸️ⓉⒽⓊⒼⓈ⚔️ⓞⓕ⚔️ⒽⒾⓃⒹⓄⓈⓉⒶⓃ☸️ (@bhaskar_k_) June 11, 2018
Regional cinema is soulful, it captures the dialect & earthen humor so well. A Bollywood remake is almost a parody by ham actors and a khichdi of local dialect and Hindi. #Sairat vs #Dhadak is #Reebok vs #Reebook — Rofl Gandhi (@RoflGandhi_) June 11, 2018
Ugh! @karanjohar you should have taken another @chetan_bhagat novel to make with the 'star kids' instead of ruining #Sairat anyway their careers don't depend on this one movie as long as you're there #nepotism#Dhadak#DhadakTrailer # — 2am Philosopher (@sokrafood) June 11, 2018
Let's hope that Dhadak surprises all of us. Also starring Ashutosh Rana in a negative role, it is all set to release across Indian theatres on 20 July.
