According to early estimates, the film raked in around Rs 10 crore on its second day.
Bollywood actor Ishaan Khattar and actress Jhanvi Kapoor's debut film Dhadak is going strong at the box office following favourable word of mouth and curiosity surrounding the daughter of Sridevi. Taran Adarsh said "rarely does a film starring absolute newcomers open so well.Day 1 is higher than Student of the Year".
The film saw a significant growth of 26.75% on Saturday and earned Rs 11.04 crore. On its opening day at the box office, Dhadak made Rs 8.71 crore in box office collections. Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter's performance in the film, which released in the theatres this Friday, received thumbs up from the critics as well as the audience. On Sunday, the buzz is that the film will do even better than Saturday. Fans were also excited to see if Shashank Khaitan and Karan Johar could recreate the magic of "Sairat".
Though, "Dhadak" opened to mixed reviews and comparisons with "Sairat" were obviously drawn, the movie is performing well at the box office. The film has done exceptionally well in all key metros and Northern markets. Among them, Janhvi's closest one said that he was left speechless and was super proud of her! He further complimented Ishaan saying that he nailed the simplicity & energy of a young kid who just sees purity in love. Dhadak is an adaptation of the Marathi blockbuster Sairat, which had featured newcomers Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar in the lead.
