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."
