The Hindi remake of Marathi film ‘Sairat’ which is being produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions is all set to go on floors in December. The Hindi adaptation which marks the debut of Sri Devi and Boney Kapoor’s daughter, Jhanvi Kapoor along with Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishaan Khattar, however, will be made at a grander level than the original.
We have learnt that the Hindi remake of this Marathi smash hit will be relocated to Haryana unlike the original which was set in Maharashtra. If a source is to be believed, the remake which has been titled ‘Dhadak’ has been resettled to Haryana considering the fact that the film’s themes of caste politics and honour killings are as relevant there as they were to the interiors of Maharashtra where the plot of the original unfolded.
The script for the Hindi remake has reportedly been attuned to modern-day sensibilities and will be made in Dharma Productions’ usual larger-than-life scale. Shashank Khaitan who has directed ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya’ for Dharma Productions has been given the responsibility to direct it. Ajay-Atul who composed the music for the original has been roped in for this film, too to score as audacious music as its plot.
