Dhadak was a remake of Marathi blockbuster film Sairat. Earlier, during the trailer launch of Dhadak, Janhvi said, “I saw Sairat with mom at home and I remember telling her ‘I wish that this was my first film and I could do something like it’. Me and mom had this big discussion on how she wanted a role like this for me and then you (Karan Johar) called and it happened.
