In Bollywood, stories of young love struggling to find happiness despite harsh social customs are still box office gold.

Enter Dhadak, starring Shahid Kapoor’s step-brother, Ishaan Khatter and Sridevi’s daughter, Janhvi Kapoor who will be making her debut with the flick in lead roles. It is a remake of the the Marathi sleeper hit, Sairat.

Directed by Shashank Khaitan (Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya, Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya) and produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions, Dhadak brings to us a college romance set in small-town India that doesn't seem to have a happy ending.

That being said, it's refreshing to finally see some young and new faces onscreen, plus the two have great chemistry onscreen as is evident from the trailer. You'll find yourself laughing, tearing up and rooting for these two lovebirds and hating on Ashutosh Rana (wait for it) while watching the three-minute trailer.

The film is set to release on July 20, 2018.
