'Dhadak' opened with mixed reviews among critics unlike the original 2016 Marathi-language film 'Sairat', but the box-office collection tells a different story. The film made a whopping collection of over Rs. 33 crore in merely three days
Opening with Rs 8.71 crore, it is the biggest opening at the box-office featuring debutants. With an overwhelming response and beating Dharma Productions 'Student of the Year' which collected Rs 8 crore on its first day, Shashank Khaitan said, "I was confident about the film. Till now, many people have watched the film. These two kids (Ishaan and Janhvi) have done a fantastic job. We saw such kind of iconic love story after so many days. We had faith in the kind of honesty and hard work we made this film with. We all would like to thank Karan Johar for believing in all of us."
When asked Janhvi Kapoor who gave her the best compliment so far for her performance in Dhadak, she said, "I got the best compliment from my director Shashank Khaitan when he told me that he is proud of me. But more than that, I feel the kind of overwhelming response that we are getting here is the biggest compliment for all of us."
Mallika Sherawat was clicked in Juhu, Mumbai
Mallika, who comes from Haryana, which once had the lowest female child ratio, entered the film industry much to the dismay of her family members. She says it was running away from home that gave her courage. "Stifled in a patriarchal family, I neither had freedom nor choice. I faced innumerable hardships because I dared to question and challenge the status quo. When I got a chance, I ran as fast as my legs could carry me and I survived. Today I stand on my own two feet and I decide how I live my life," said the actress, recently on Twitter
The journey hasn't been easy as Mallika Sherawat was called "enough names and treated in myriad ways." She said, "Every young girl, every woman has dreams. Every woman who is empowered can empower another... I want to free every girl from fear.... Let us fight to create a society where women live with pride and not with worry. Let us battle the odds to build a world where girls and women live unshackled."

Nora, who earlier worked with Lamjarred on his song "Ghazali", said in a statement, "I'm always very proud of Moroccan artistes doing well and achieving international recognition. I've always said Moroccan artistes are extremely talented and the world needs to take notice. Saad has really put Morocco on the scene through his music and brought the international market to take notice of our music and our language called Darija. I've always admired his music and we are in talks to work together in the near future for his music video. This collaboration will be amazing as two recognised Moroccan artistes from two different markets will be coming together. I feel both our fans will be very excited to see what's in store.
