Dhadak is directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced under Karan Johar's home banner Dharma Productions.

Dhadak's box office collection on day one was Rs 8.71 crore in India and the film earned Rs 3.34 crore internationally. Rarely does a film starring absolute newcomers open so well... "He said, "#Dhadak takes a HEROIC START... Day 1 is higher than Student Of The Year [Rs 8 cr]. "Fri Rs 8.71 cr", Mr Adarsh shared.

Meanwhile, Johar took to Twitter to express his happiness over the Dhadak overtaking Student of the Year in terming of opening day earnings. On Twitter, the filmmaker wrote: "Glad to have our own record broken previously held by SOTY!" According to early estimates, the film raked in around Rs 10 crore on its second day. But from now on Dhadak's box office performance will depend on the word-of-mouth. Helmed by Shashank Khaitan, Dhadak stars Ankit Bisht, Shridhar Watsar, Aditya Kumar, Aishwarya Narkar, Govind Pandey, Ashutosh Rana and Kharaj Mukherjee. However, Janhvi Kapoor has stated that her character, who is named Parthavi, will be quite different. "Comparisons with Marathi blockbuster #Sairat are inevitable". In fact, it saw more traction than the high octane Hollywood action film. But if you've already watched Sairat and are expecting Dhadak to be a copy of it, that's not going to be the case.
