Bollywood Lauds Janhvi Kapoor, Ishaan Khatter in ‘Dhadak’

Dhadak, which marks the much-awaited Bollywood foray of Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter, registered an opening day collection of Rs 8.71 crore, making a record for a Hindi movie with newcomers in India, according to its makers.

Newcomers Janhvi and Ishaan’s performance in the movie has elicited a positive and welcoming response from the Indian film industry.

Veteran writer-lyricist Javed Akhtar watched the movie, and tweeted: "Loved it. Both Janhvi and Ishaan are unbelievably excellent. Brilliant is too timid word for them. Janhvi, you are really a worthy daughter of a worthy mother. Lots of love."

Janhvi is the daughter of producer Boney Kapoor and late iconic actress Sridevi, while Ishaan is the son of veteran actress Neelima Azeem. He made his film debut with Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi's Beyond The Clouds, but Dhadak has marked Ishaan's Bollywood entry.

Suniel Shetty and Bhumi Pednekar and other stars are also praised their performance in Dhadak.
