Mobile Phones Banned On Dhadak, This Is Why..



Janhvi Kapoor recently resumed her shooting schedule after the untimely departure of mother Sridevi’s funeral ceremony. Just after few days of resuming the movie’s shoot of Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor starrer Dhadak, there’s a new policy for the sets which has been in limelight now-a-days, ‘No Mobile Phone On Sets Policy’.

Actually recently, behind-the-scenes pictures and videos from the sets surfaced online. Photos of Janhvi dressed in a yellow salwar kameez and her co-star Ishaan Khatter in a yellow shirt, blue jacket and brown trousers went viral. And this didn’t go well with the makers of the movie.

The movie is helmed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar, the duo don’t want the look of the stars to explore among the public and that is why Kjo has apparently issued a strict no-phone policy on set to curb further leaks.

One of the source said, “When the team found out about the leaked videos on Saturday night, it promptly reached out to Instagram Help Centre and managed to pull one of them down. But it was too late to block the other one, as it had been circulated widely by Janhvi and Ishaan’s fan clubs by then. The video was from the Jaipur schedule of Dhadak that took place a few months ago.”

“Since the film is a remake of Sairat, the plot is already known. So, it is crucial for Shashank to guard the film’s look to keep the mystery around the movie alive. Since many scenes are being shot outdoors, the producers are working on procuring permissions to cordon off the area where they are shooting. After all, the videos in question were leaked by the fans who had queued up on set,”  the source further added.

The unhappy director of the movie said, “It’s unfortunate that people leak footage. We can only do so much to protect our product, but with outdoor schedules, it is difficult for us. Everyone around has a camera phone. Kis kis ko roke? It would be nice if people were more supportive.”

Janhvi’s debut movie Dhadak will be on silver screen on 6th July.
