Dhadak: No phone-policy on sets after Janhvi Kapoor-Ishaan Khatter’s leaked photos go viral
hadak: No phone-policy on sets after Janhvi Kapoor-Ishaan Khatter’s leaked photos go viral – Post her mother Sridevi’s sudden demise, Janhvi Kapoor showed immense courage and resumed the shooting of her debut film Dhadak a few days back. Soon after, behind-the-scenes pictures and videos went viral on the internet making the audience excited for the film.
In the photos, Janhvi was spotted wearing a yellow salwar kameez while her co-star Ishaan Khatter was seen clad in a yellow shirt, blue jacket and brown trousers. But it seems the surfacing of photos online hasn’t gone down too well with the makers and director Shashank Khaitan and producer Karan Johar are now leaving no stone unturned to keep Janhvi and Ishaan’s look under the wraps.
According to a report in Mid-Day, KJo has apparently issued a strict no-phone policy on set to curb further leaks of photos and BTS videos. A source told the daily, “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.”
Meanwhile, another source revealed that the crew has been asked to handover their phones before entering the sets and measures are being taken to keep enthusiastic fans at bay. “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,” said the source.
Moreover, director Shashank wants fans to be a little supportive. “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,” he said.
Dhadak is slated to hit the screens on July 6.
