Post Sridevi's demise, Shashank Khaitan revealed the atmosphere on Dhadak Sets

"Dhadak" starring Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter is all set to hit theatres on July 20th 2018. Post veteran actor Sridevi’s demise, filmmaker Shashank Khaitan talked about the atmosphere on Dhadak Sets. 

Dhadak’s leading lady Janhvi Kapoor is Sridevi’s elder daughter. After the sudden demise of legendary actress Sridevi, Janhvi continued shooting for the film within 13 days. 

In an interview with DNA, director of the film Shashank Khaitan talked about the atmosphere on the sets of “Dhadak” after the tragic incident, he said, "It was very important not just for me but for my entire team to isolate what had happened as a personal tragedy and get back to filmmaking in a professional way. Everything I felt at that point was dealt on a personal level. Credit to Janhvi and her family on how they dealt with it. When we came back on sets, it was really important that we focus on the film and not let it bog us down or do things differently because then we would be cheating the film". He further added saying, "We were behaving the way we were earlier and trying to make things normal. We had a proper 12-hour working day when she returned and we didn't make any special efforts to reduce the time or go slower". “As someone who knows her and her family, there were certain things I would do differently on a personal level which I would continue to do. But as a film director, I had a responsibility not only towards her but to everybody associated with 'Dhadak',”.
