New Delhi: Upcoming actor Janhvi Kapoor, who turned 21 two days ago, has returned to the sets of her debut film ‘Dhadak’. Janhvi lost her mother Sridevi just 10 days ahead of her birthday, but was brave enough to step out of her house to spend her day at an old age home.
According to a report published in Mumbai Mirror, the young girl resumed shooting on Thursday morning, with co-star Ishaan Khatter at Bandra’s Carter Road. Although the reports suggested that Janhvi might take a break following her mother’s untimely death, the debutante agreed to resume shooting to complete the film before the release date.

“Janhvi and Ishaan will be shooting in Bandra for the next couple of days where they will film some romantic scenes. In the coming week, the duo will head to Kolkata to begin work on the story post-interval, when the lovers elope. They have completed the shoot of the first half which kicked off last December and was shot across Rajasthan and on a set in Mumbai where parts of the state were recreated,” a source was quoted as saying by Mumbai Mirror.
Director Shashank Khaitan, too confirmed the news to the tabloid, “Yes, we have resumed the shoot, rumours of the team taking a break are untrue. We have started off in Mumbai and are looking forward to the Kolkata schedule.”
‘Dhadak’ is the official Hindi adaptation of the critically acclaimed Marathi runaway film, Sairat. The original film featured Akash Thosar and Rinku Rajguru as the leads. Janhvi’s parents, Sridevi and filmmaker Boney Kapoor, had accompanied her to Udaipur for her first day of the shoot last December. In fact, Sridevi was also slated to do a film titled ‘Shiddat’ produced under the banner of Dharma Productions.
On Thursday, a part of Sridevi’s ashes were immersed in the holy Ganges in Haridwar by her husband Boney Kapoor. He was accompanied by brother Anil Kapoor, Sridevi’s close friend Manish Malhotra and politician Amar Singh.
