Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter’s Dhadak got a dream start at the box office and the film’s bullish promotional strategy was perhaps the catalyst. The film earned an impressive Rs 19.25 crore in its first two days of release.
According to a BoxOfficeIndia report, the film made Rs 10.5 crore on Saturday. Dhadak’s two fresh-faced leads -- Janhvi and Ishaan -- have been promoting Dhadak across cities and the film has been in the news for launching Sridevi’s daughter, Janhvi. But from now on Dhadak’s box office performance will depend on the word-of-mouth.
