Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter‘s debut film Dhadak opened to positive reviews yesterday. The internet is buzzing with appreciation posts and reviews of both debutants who are being touted as the best things about the movie. We can only imagine what pressure the duo must’ve felt before the release of their first film, but also because there would be a natural comparison to their talented family members who are an integral part of the film fraternity. But B-Town celebrities have heaped Janhvi and Ishaan with praises for their performance in the flick.
Arjun Kapoor has been a constant source of support for Janhvi and Khushi Kapoor, so of course, her big brother had caught the film between his busy schedule.

Even legends like Javed Akhtar, Shabana Azmi and Rekha couldn’t help but say words of appreciation for the young stars. Both Javed Sahab and Shabana mam were reminded of Sridevi while watching the film.

While Rekha ji chose to show her delight in person when she attended the special screening of the movie.
It’s praises galore for these two and why wouldn’t it be? After months of hard work and promotions, they’ve finally got a sweet result.
Congratulations on the success, Janhvi and Ishaan!
