Fans eager to watch the Hindi remake of Nagraj Manjule’s Marathi blockbuster Sairat (2016) will have to wait two more weeks to see Ishaan Khattar and Janhvi Kapoor in the film. Produced by Dharma Productions, Dhadak's release date has been postponed to 20 July from 6 July 2018.

A new poster with the lead pair revealed the new release date.

Directed by Shashank Khaitan, the remake will explore the subjects of casteism and honour killings in India, as in the original. However, Dhadak will be set in the state of Rajasthan while Sairat was based in Maharashtra.

Dhadak is one of the keenly anticipated films of the year, and will launch Khattar, brother of actor Shahid Kapoor, and Janhvi, daughter of actress Sridevi and producer Boney Kapoor.
