Karan Johar is the most sought-after mentor in Bollywood and there’s a reason to it. The filmmaker never goes wrong with his choice of upcoming talent and his latest protege Janhvi Kapoor is making him all the more proud.

Johar’s latest production ‘Dhadak’ opened up to some mixed reviews from the critics. However, it looks like the audience has loved this tragic romantic drama as in just two weeks after its release the film has collected Rs 100 crores worldwide. Considering the fact that ‘Dhadak’ is Janhvi Kapoor’s debut film and even her co-star Ishaan Khatter is just one-film-old, it is a huge achievement for any film with newcomers.

Sharing the news with his followers on Twitter, an elated Karan Johar wrote, “DHADAK!!!!! Wins hearts globally !! 100 crore WORLDWIDE GROSS!!! A rare feat for a film with newcomers! So proud of Janhvi and Ishan! @ShashankKhaitan

Even in its second week, the film is doing a great business at the domestic box office, as according to the Box Office India, till Monday the film has minted around 63 crore nett approximately. According to the same website, ‘Dhadak’ has even left behind Johar’s ‘Student Of The Year‘ film and has become the highest nett grosser with newcomers.

With this new achievement, Karan and his entire ‘Dhadak’ team must be on cloud nine especially Janhvi Kapoor. Helmed by Shashank Khaitan, ‘Dhadak’ is an official remake of Marathi film ‘Sairat’ which was directed by Nagraj Manjule.
