Daddy’s little girl Jahnvi is making waves with her debut film Dhadak and its success has put papa Boney Kapoor on cloud nine.
“I was somewhere sure it would do very well,” said Kapoor in a statement.
Dhadak, directed by Nagraj Manjule and produced by Zee Studios and Dharma Productions, has already grossed Rs 60.48 crore worldwide.
“I told Janhvi to remain simple, honest, focused and hard working as she has been so far,” Kapoor said.
Also starring Ishaan Khatter and Ashutosh Rana, the film was released on July 20 in 2,235 screens in India and 556 overseas.
“We are overwhelmed and grateful for the fabulous response and the tremendous love the audiences have showered on Dhadak. We are thankful to director Nagraj Manjule for giving us ‘Sairat’, which makes for a great source to draw from,” Shariq Patel, CEO, Zee Studios, said.
“The movie, in just its 3-day-run at the box office, has set new benchmarks for newcomers,” Apoorva Mehta, CEO, Dharma Productions, said.
“What is more heartening is the love these newcomers, Janhvi and Ishaan are getting from heartland India,” Mehta added.
Dhadak has done exceptionally well in all key metros and north markets, Patel said.
