Made under the banners of Zee Studios and Dharma Productions, Dhadak was produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta. Earlier, Student Of The Year, which grossed 7.52 crore nett in 2012, was the best opening for a film starring new faces. "India biz", market analyst Taran Adarsh said on Twitter. Rarely does a film starring absolute newcomers open so well... Fri Rs 8.71 cr.

"Glad to have our own record broken previously held by SOTY! Thank you to all the beating hearts for giving this beating heart so much love!" The film earned an impressive Rs 19.25 crore in its first two days of release. That obviously says it all because lately, Hollywood has been trumping Hindi films on a regular basis at the box office. She wrote, "Sairat was set in rural Maharashtra, and takes its young leads to a slummy outpost in Hyderabad". Although the storyline of both the films remains somewhat the same - of two college students falling in love who are torn apart by differences in social status - the characters only draw inspiration from those in the original film.

Directed by Shashank Khaitan of Humpty Sharma ki Dulhania and Badrinath ki Dulhania fame, Dhadak also stars Ashutosh Rana. If not for the comparisons with the classic "Sairat", "Dhadak" would have seemed to be a regular Bollywood entertainer, at least.
