Producer Karan Johar also said that Dhadak is best work of director Shashank Khaitan till date. Asked what was his reaction after watching “Dhadak”, Karan said: “When Shashank told me that he wants to remake (Marathi film) ‘Sairat’, I was bit scared because that film has its own individuality.
The kind of tone that filmmaker (Nagraj Manjule) has been able to hold is very difficult to capture but confidence of Shashank is very infectious so, when we decided to make the film, I know it had to be with new talent.
“When I saw end of ‘Dhadak’, it made me shake a little bit but when I again watched it, I felt Shashank has done an exceptional job in adapting the source material.”
Praising Khaitan further, Johar added: “He has taken lot of sequences from the original one but he made a new film and characters for pan India audience. It his third film as a director but in all three films that Shashank made, I think ‘Dhadak’ is his best film directorially.”>
