Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor is finally going to make her Bollywood debut with the film Dhadak. Being one of the most popular star kids, fans are eagerly waiting to see the young actress on the big screen for the first time.
Official Hindi remake of the Marathi film Sairat, Dhadak is slated to be released this Friday. Janhvi will be seen romancing Shahid Kapoor's brother Ishaan Khatter in the movie. Although Ishaan is a new actor too, Dhadak is Janhvi's debut. Hence, she will be the centre of focus as people will be curious to know how she performs on celluloid.
Directed by Shashank Khaitan, Dhadak is a much-awaited film for various reasons. First, it is the debut of late iconic actress Sridevi's daughter. Secondly, it has been directed by Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania fame Shashank. Also, fans are curious to see the chemistry of Janhvi and Ishaan.
However, at the same time, there are certain factors that are likely to put additional pressure on Janhvi in the wake of Dhadak's release.
Daughter of Sridevi
First, Janhvi is the daughter of legendary actress Sridevi. She was one of the most popular actresses of her time and had continued impressing the audience even in her 50s. Being the daughter of such an iconic personality, a lot of comparisons between the duos are likely to be made in terms of her screen presence and acting skills.
Comparison with Sairat actress
Secondly, the girl named Rinku Rajguru, who played the female lead in Sairat, was highly praised for her performance in the film. Janhvi's portrayal of the character will surely be compared with her, which might create added pressure on the debutant.
Already acknowledged co-actor
Ishaan Khatter had made his acting debut with the film Beyond The Clouds. He had received immense appreciation for his acting in the film and is expected to shine in Dhadak too. Being a debutant and then being paired with an actor, who already has gained accolades in acting can be a tough thing to tackle.
Burden of nepotism
Fourthly, she will bear the burden of nepotism, and might have to face a lot of backlash if she does not rise up to the expectations.
Demise of Sridevi
Last but not the least, Janhvi lost her mother not long ago, and the thought that Sridevi could not watch her debut film may trouble her for some time.
We wish, the star kid overcomes all these issues and surprises all with her performance in Dhadak.
