This is as close as a debut gets to a tragedy. Janhvi Kapoor is poised for her big launch. It can’t get any bigger than Karan Johar, can it now? Unless she got Sanjay Leela Bhansali to launch her, which she didn’t.
Sridevi must be very happy seeing her daughter shining even before her debut. Janhvi and her younger sister Khushi have coped ably with their mother’s sudden loss. During her lifetime, Sridevi was too keen to see her daughters become actresses.The proud protective mother always said she wanted her daughters to get a proper education.

The film comes with a heavy baggage. The Marathi version Sairat became an instant classic. I doubt Dhadak would get the same ovation. Remakes inevitably suffer in comparison. Nobody in his right mind would look for Sairat in Dhadak. It would be as sacrilegious as looking for Sholay in Ram Gopal Varma’s Aag.
