While SAIRAT was set in the interiors of Maharashtra, DHADAK starring Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor is based in Rajasthan. This is one the major differences in both the film. With DHADAK being an adaptation of SAIRAT, director Shashank Khaitan and his team have ensured to change things up accordingly.
Ishaan and Janhvi struck up conversations with the locals of Udaipur when they first visited the place, to pick up the nuances and accents of the local language. Mewari has been a rarity in Hindi cinema, and Shashank Khaitan thought it was best if the two leads of the film got well-versed with it before shooting began.
Infact, Ishaan went the extra mile to make his Rajasthani character (Madhu) look authentic and got his ear pierced for the same.
DHADAK produced by Karan Johar, Zee Studios, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta, releases on July 20.
