Don’t they look amazing?

During an interview with the magazine, Ishaan revealed how he landed the role in Dhadak:

My audition was my social media account, I think. Karan’s [Johar] team had seen some of my videos on Instagram—Dubsmashes and things—and then I had a series of meetings with him.

No wonder, the makers of Dhadak were impressed with his Instagram videos. It’s no secret that Ishaan is amazing in front of the camera. His acting skills impressed everyone with Majid Majidi‘s, Beyond The Clouds and he seems to be in his full element with Dhadak as well.

Ishaan and Janhvi are both very young and have already begun their careers and since the magazine’s issue also focuses on Millennials, Janvhi said:

People say our generation has a short attention span, but if there’s something I’m passionate about, I’m completely focused on it.

The duo is all set to make their debut in Bollywood soon and we can’t wait to see what they so next!
