Dhadak is a romantic flick helmed by Shashank Khaitan and produced under the banner of Dharma Productions. Sairat managed to achieve success not only at the box office but it also garnered the best kind of responsesÂ from the critics. Dhadak, despite commercial success, failed to get good responses from the critics.
From Bollywood celebs to the public, everyone is all in praise for the young actors. But there was a section of audiences who felt that Dhadak couldn’t recreate the magic of Sairat. Well, looking at the box office collection, it is raking in the moolah. Let’s see how it works in the coming days.
