View Photos: Janhvi Kapoor shoots in Kolkata for ‘Dhadak’


Post Sridevi’s sudden death, daughter Janhvi Kapoor is back to work. She resumed the shooting of her debut film ‘Dhadak’. The debutante was spotted shooting in Kolkata dressed in a simple salwar kameez.

Talking about ‘Dhadak’, the film is a Hindi remake of Marathi blockbuster ‘Sairat’. The film stars Ishaan Khatter pposite Janhvi. The team shot in Rajasthan, Mumbai and now Kolkata. Their next shooting destination is not yet known.

Director Shashank Khaitan earlier informed about the film, "Dhadak is a title, a word and quite relatable. We are really excited about the film.  was always very excited to go to two new fresh faces and see how it works. Janhvi and Ishaan get a sense of innocence to the table and that's what we will capitalize on." 

Khaitan further said about the film’s script, "The basic premise is of differences in caste, honour killing and what it means to survive in that world and I feel that is the conflict that is alive all across India, you will hear stories like that. So in that sense, the basic premise (of Dhadak and Sairat) is same. But there are variations."
