Janhvi Kapoor is all set to make her big Bollywood debut with Dhadak which is the Hindi remake of Sairat. Not just her family but even fans are eagerly waiting to see the darling daughter of Sridevi onscreen.
The trailer of the movie is out. Though there were several comparisons and it received mixed reviews, Dhadak is surely one of the most-awaited movies of 2018.
As we all know, Janhvi is a star kid hailing from a family full of talented actors and actresses. She has probably never faced financial issues, so it doesn’t even matter what remuneration she is getting for her debut film.
However, we are really excited to know what the newbie got as her first paycheck for her debut film. Are you guys eager to know?
So let’s dig into some inside details about Janhvi and also the other cast of the film and their salary.
Janhvi is a brand new talent introduced by Karan Johar for his home production Dharma Production. The actress’ talent will only be judged after the movie releases, however, being the child of superstar actress Sridevi, Janhvi would definitely have some perks. So, a part of her remuneration for her debut Bollywood films, Janhvi got a big paycheck of 60 lakhs. Whoa! Now that’s quite a huge amount!
Talking about other star cast who are also a pivotal part of the films and those also include film’s director, music-directors and Dhadak’s male lead Ishaan Khatter.
Ishaan Khatter wo’t be facing the camera for the first time in Dhadak as he already made his Bollywood debut with Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds which also got him good reviews. The newbie actor and brother of Shahid Kapoor got a whopping paycheck of 60 lakhs for his role in Dhadak.
Dhadak’s director Shashank Khaitan who has previously directed films like Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Badrinath Ki Dulhania has proudly taken the responsibility to direct these two new stars in the film. The director got a big amount of 4 crores for helming this film.
Sairat’s director Nagraj Manjule charged a huge amount of 2 crores to give away the story of his movie. The ace director had written the beautiful story by himself.
Lastly, without some good music especially from the original film won’t do justice to Dhadak. The makers of the film handed over the responsibility to Ajay-Atul who composed music for Sairat. Ajay-Atul recreated the Marathi track Zingaat and got a huge remuneration of 1.5 crores.
Also, Karan has left no stone unturned to make Dhadak a big and grand one and the movie is said to be made for a whopping budget of 30 crores.
Let’s hope the movie makes good revenue at the box-office and takes off the career of these two newbies.
Dhadak is slated for 20th July release.
