First look: Janhvi Kapoor & Ishan Khatter in ‘Sairat’ remake.
While a lot of people inside and outside of the Indian movie industry, on several occasions, have argued the existence and need of remakes over the years, but still, w great number is being produced by Bollywood movie makers each year. Earlier this year, Judwaa 2 came out with Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles, which was an ode to the first part fearing Salman Khan and Karisma Kapoor. And today, we woke up to the news of yet another remake.
Superhit Marathi movie Sairat is the next movie, that is all set to be remade for Bollywood, in Hindi of course, starring Sridevi Kapoor and Boney Kapoor’s elder daughter Janvhi Kapoor, alongside Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother, Ishaan Khatter.
It’s true that a lot of people were waiting anxiously for these two to make their big screen debut, Janhvi especially, let’s see if it works out. This year began with the release of another remake, Ok Jaanu! starring the Aashiqui-2 duo, Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor. The film was based on a hit Tamil movie, O Kadhal Kanmani, but ended up failing at the box office. We mention Ok! Jaanu, mainly because it was also produced by Dharma Productions, the production house behind Janhvi–Ishaan starrer, Dhadak.
Yesterday, Karan Johar took to his Instagram and twitter handles to share the first look posters of the movie, which were received with mix reviews. While some expressed their excitement over finally finding out as to which movie will Janhvi Kapoor be making her debut, others were calling it another example of nepotism in Bollywood.
