First-time stars in a Karan Johar production include Bollywood actors Siddhant Chaturvedi and Triptii Dimri. The two burgeoning stars, who have been creating waves in the business with their performances, will now co-star in the next movie Dhadak 2. In actuality, the upcoming movie will be a sequel to the 2018 hit Dhadak, which saw Janhvi Kapoor make her acting debut alongside Ishaan Khatter.
According to a report from Pinkvilla, Karan Johar plans to turn Dhadak into a franchise, which Dharma Productions is currently developing. According to a person familiar with the project, “Dhadak was fundamentally an emotional love story, with two characters defying society to live together. The director Karan Johar thinks this theme of fighting against all odds for love has the potential to become a franchise. After considering a number of ideas, the director Karan Johar has chosen one that is appropriate for a Dhadak sequel.
The insider continued, “Shazia Iqbal will make her directorial debut with this movie. Siddhant and Triptii are both eager to take part in a real-life, passionate love story. Soon, the preparation work will start. Dhadak 2 is anticipated to begin filming in the second part of this year, according to the report.
The source continued, “Before taking the film on floors, there will be script reading sessions and acting workshops for the two leads.” The insider revealed additional information about the planned production. A prominent actor will join the cast to portray the adversary as the girl’s father, and the film demands that they be in a grounded setting with a slightly raw touch to the subject that can only be improved via workshops. The same source was cited as saying, “Aside from the father, some other characters also warrant the presence of credible actors,” in the report’s concluding paragraph. In a month, a cast will be put together.
