'Dhadak' is an official remake of the Marathi Blockbuster film 'Sairat'. The movie 'Sairat' starred newcomers Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar. 'Sairat', helmed by Nagraj Manjule went on to become the biggest hit in the history of Marathi cinema by garnering over Rs 100 crores at the Box Office.
'Dhadak' is directed by Shashank Khaitan and released on July 20. It has been produced by Dharma Productions and Zee Studios and stars Janhvi, Ishaan and Ashutosh Rana in lead roles. The story is based on caste differences prevalent in Indian society.
