Hopes are high that due to Baisakhi and Vishu holidays there will be an increase in the footfalls and positive word of mouth will take the Shoojit Sircar directorial to a new high.
Let us wait and watch if October manages to break the 100 crore barrier within the next few days.
Janhvi-Ishaan's 'Dhadak' has an impressive run over the first weekend
Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter’s debut film ‘Dhadak’ is soaring high at the box office. The opening day collection of Rs 8.71 crore, itself turned out to be a record breaker for the newcomers.

Produced under Karan Johar‘s Dharma Productions, the movie released on July 20. ‘Dhadak’ is an official adaption of the 2016 Marathi film ‘Sairat’ by Nagaraj Manjule. Just like Manjule, Karan Johar introduced us with two new faces in the industry, Shahid Kapoor‘s brother, Ishaan Khatter and Sridevi‘s daughter Janhvi Kapoor.
Janhvi and Ishaan's 'Dhadak' registers good numbers on Day 2 at the box office!
‘Dhadak’, which marks the much-awaited Bollywood foray of Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter, registered an opening day collection of Rs 8.71 crore, making a record for a Hindi movie with newcomers in India, according to its makers.
On its second day, the film has minted Rs 11.04 crores, taking the grand total to Rs 19.75 crores. With this trend, the makers are aiming at Rs 30 crores first weekend which will be a great milestone for the lead actors.
The film is a Hindi remake of hit Marathi film ‘Sairat’. Directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar, the film had hit the theaters on 20th July 2018.
Coming back to Janhvi Kapoor, the actress was recently asked whether she believes she has become a star with the success of ‘Dhadak’, she said, “I don’t think I am a star as of now, I am just trying to be an actor.”
When asked who gave her the best compliment so far for her performance, she said, “I got the best compliment from my director Shashank Khaitan when he told me that he is proud of me. But more than that, I feel the kind of overwhelming response that we are getting here is the biggest compliment for all of us”.
With an overwhelming response and beating Dharma Productions ‘Student Of The Year‘ which collected Rs 8 crore on its first day, Khaitan said, “I was confident about the film.”
“Till now, many people have watched the film. These two kids (Ishaan and Janhvi) have done a fantastic job. We saw such kind of iconic love story after so many days.”
“We had faith in the kind of honesty and hard work we made this film with. We all would like to thank Karan Johar for believing in all of us,” Khaitan expressed.
