After watching the film, Sonam was full of praise for Janhvi, Ishaan and director of the film Shashank Khaitan.

 “What a stunning debut @janhvikapoor so so proud! Moved beyond words. @ishaankhattar you are magnificent. And this is all thanks to @ShashankKhaitan who has brilliantly captured their innocence, vulnerability and strength! Stunned!!!!!!,” she wrote in a tweet. She also posted the same message on her Instagram stories.

Janhvi’s step-brother and actor Arjun Kapoor wrote after watching the trailer of ‘Dhadak’, “#JanhviKapoor, today starts a new & a beautiful journey! You are amazing and so is #IshaanKhatter! Both of you are magical in the #DhadakTrailer... Only love for you both! All the very best to the whole team.”

He also wrote a long post for Janhvi a day before the trailer launch. “Tomorrow you will be part of the audience forever #JanhviKapoor cause your trailer comes out... Firstly, sorry I’m not there in Mumbai but I’m by your side, don’t worry. I just wanted you to know this profession is amazing if you work hard, be honest, learn to take the accolades with the brickbats, respect opinions, yet follow your own path & instinct. It’s not gonna be easy but I know you are ready for all the madness that will ensue. All the best for #Dhadak! I’m certain that my friends @ShashankKhaitan & @karanjohar have presented you & #IshaanKhatter as the modern Romeo & Juliet with elan,” he said in a string of tweets.
