Did You Know How Ishaan Khatter Landed Karan Johar’s Dhadak?
Young heartthrob Ishaan Khatter is making waves in the cinema world currently. And why not! He is charming, handsome and thanks to his debut film, Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds (under the production banner Zee Studios), he has proved that he indeed has acting in his blood. Given all this, you all must have concluded that it wouldn’t have been a difficult task for Ishaan to lap up a big flick like Dhadak, right?
Well, not really! In fact, it took him a lot of efforts to finally grab the project. And guess what, Khatter was making all those efforts for fun and had no idea that this was going to change his Bollywood game in a huge way. Excited to get all the dope, aren’t you? So are we, to let the cat out of the bag! So here it is…
Ishaan’s first ever extensive magazine coverage, alongside his Dhadak leading lady, Janhvi Kapoor, has revealed how the actor was offered the coveted role in director Shashank Khaitan’sromantic drama, jointly produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo YashJohar and Apoorva Mehta. Here’s what he shared with the popular magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, “My audition was my social media account, I think. Karan’s [Johar] team had seen some of my videos on Instagram—Dubsmashes and things—and then I had a series of meetings with him.”
Hmmm… now that’s interesting, isn’t it? Ishaan certainly deserves to be a part of Dhadak, we say. And he looks truly amazing in the promos, obviously upping everyone’s excitement about the plot, his role and of course, his chemistry with co-star Janhvi, who is all set to make her Hindi film debut. So far as the trailers have shown us, the two have indeed struck an endearing bond and look great together. The raw appeal in their chemistry is surely a visual treat. Talking of their chemistry, we can’t overlook their first magazine cover shoot together for the August 2018 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. The duo look adorable together.
Though it is yet to be seen as to how well Ishaan and Janhvihave pulled off their performances, we can’t put aside the fact that both come from film families, and hence, the expectations from them to set the silver screen afire with their work have become sky-high. Ishaan is Bollywood actors Neelima Azeemand Rajesh Khatter’s son and talented actor Shahid Kapoor’shalf-brother. Janhvi, on the other hand, is ace producer Boney Kapoor and late actress Sridevi’s daughter.
Dhadak is a remake of the superhit Marathi film, Sairat, released in 2016. Set in Rajasthan, it is a love drama that unfolds an engaging saga of issues like caste differences and honor killings.The film is set to come out in cinema halls on 20 July.
