Karan Johar unveiled the first trailer for his much-anticipated film, Dhadak, on Monday and Twitter exploded with memes and jokes.
Dhadak, which introduces late actor Sridevi and producer Boney Kapoor’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter, is a Hindi remake of Marathi blockbuster Sairat which was directed by Nagraj Manjule.
Agreed, many have applauded the refreshing chemistry between lead actors Janhvi and Ishaan and how the trailer has heightened the anticipation for the movie, which will be officially released on July 20. However, it has also given Twitter the much-needed opportunity to come up with jokes.
While many were delighted with the couple’s performance, others felt Dhadak paled in comparison to the original film Sairat.
We have compiled the best reactions to the trailer of Shashank Khaitan's directorial Dhadak. Take a look:
Regional cinema is soulful, it captures the dialect & earthen humor so well. A Bollywood remake is almost a parody by ham actors and a khichdi of local dialect and Hindi. #Sairat vs #Dhadak is #Reebok vs #Reebook— Rofl Gandhi (@RoflGandhi_) June 11, 2018

#IshaanKhattar is the new definition of ugliness in #DhadakTrailer wish they had casted #AkashThosar instead. he looks more handsome than #Ishaan by any means nd I dun even know marathi but i saw #Sairat with eng subtitles n loved it. this seems like a bad copy #Dhadak pic.twitter.com/YqAKcp2vtC— Ishu Chaudhary (@natmmoviefc) June 11, 2018
Shree Rajput Karni Sena should protest against the fake marwadi accent used in this film. #Dhadak— naankhatai (@clamcuckoo) June 11, 2018
