Dhadak BO collection: Janhvi & Ishaan create history in the history of Bollywood debuts!

by Unik Dhandhi, Monday, July 23, 2018

Shashank Khaitan’s Dhadak is the official remake of the 2016 Marathi hit movie Sairat. The film created such trend that the theaters had to introduce additional shows at midnight and 3 am in order to deal with the demands. With the gigantic success of Nagraj Manjule’s Sairat (2016), it was known that parallels will be drawn between Dhadak and the Marathi blockbuster.

Ishaan Khatter: Dhadak is unique in its own way

Produced by Dharma Production and Zee Studios, ‘Dhadak’ is the story of two lovers; Parthavi Singh (Janhvi Kapoor) and Madhukar Bagla (Ishaan Khatter). The dreamy love story breaks loose when Parthavi's family discovers their relationship, and the couple is forced to run off. But as the movie moves forward, the audience discovers that theirs is no fairy-tale romance.

As it is the debut of Sridevi and Boney Kapoor's elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor, fans were on their peak of excitement to see if Dhadak could recreate the magic of Sairat.

The film began its over-the-top run on Friday and managed to earn Rs 8.71 crore. According to the reports, the movie crossed the first-day collection of Karan Johar’s ‘Student Of The Year’ by becoming the highest opening Bollywood film featuring newcomers.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh reviewed the movie’s box office collection as ‘rare’ and ‘heroic’. Moreover, in a media interaction, Taran stated, “The comparisons were inevitable because Sairat is a blockbuster. However, Dhadak is different in terms of the setting, texture and it’s modified for a pan Indian and international audience. It has its moments and has been received with a lot of love by the moviegoers.”

He adds, “The film has overcome comparisons and not only started on a good note, but the second day also saw a substantial growth in numbers over the first. Going by the reviews and word-of-mouth, it will have excellent opening weekend numbers.”

The Shashank Khaitan’s directorial has not only broken the previously-held records by Nikhil Advani’s Hero (2015) but also has overtaken Habib Faisal’s Ishaqzaade (2012) starring Arjun Kapoor’s and co-starring Parineeti Chopra.

The movie took a massive turn on its second day as it bagged a collection of Rs 11.04 crore. After a record-breaking opening, it’s third day is expected to make around Rs 9 crore, which will bring its total collection to around Rs 28 crore approx.

During an earlier interview with Shashank Khaitan was asked about how different Dhadak is from its Marathi counterpart, to which he answered, "Our film is quite similar to Sairat, yet there are a few different elements that the audience will find out once they watch the film."

On a related note, Janhvi Kapoor may also be seen opposite Varun Dhawan in Shiddat.
