Jan­hvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khat­ter-star­rer Dhadak re­leases this Fri­day. As the two of them have been ex­ten­sively trav­el­ling to pro­mote their film, the young ac­tors have re­ceived a tremen­dous amount of love and en­cour­age­ment — es­pe­cially from young­sters. Talk­ing about it, Jan­hvi says, “I didn’t ex­pect this kind of out­pour­ing of love but I am so thank­ful and full of grat­i­tude for it. It has been over­whelm­ing.” Ishaan too chips in as he says, “Maybe I just didn’t think enough about the kind of love and warmth we would get. I hope that peo­ple feel that it’s all worth it once they see the film.” The film has been shot in Udaipur, Jaipur (Ra­jasthan), Kolkata and Mum­bai but Udaipur re­mains a favourite with both ac­tors. “Ev­ery mem­ory re­lated to this film will al­ways be spe­cial, but above all, it’s the 16 days we spent in Udaipur which were the most mem­o­rable,” says Ishaan. For Jan­hvi how­ever, her ex­pe­ri­ence of vis­it­ing Kolkata was spe­cial too. “When we went to Bhawa­nipur, we saw every­one cheer­ing for us. They gave us so much love and pos­i­tive en­ergy. That mem­ory that will stay with me for­ever,” she says. The two have be­come so­cial me­dia stars overnight but ask them if it’s pres­suris­ing to be known as a youth icon and Jan­hvi says that it’s more mo­ti­vat­ing then nerve-wrack­ing and pushes her to do bet­ter. Ishaan how­ever, says, “It doesn’t make me ner­vous. Love is al­ways wel­come but I do feel a sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity and that makes me want to do bet­ter.”
