Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter's film 'Dhadak' has earned Rs 33.67 crores within three days of its release. Helmed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar, the film is a Hindi adaptation of Marathi blockbuster film 'Sairat'. 

The film marked the debut of Janhvi Kapoor in Bollywood and while critics have appreciated her and Ishaan's performance, the film has received mostly negative reviews calling it an 'opulent, glamorised version of Sairat'. But the audience seems to have accepted late actress Sridevi's daughter's debut film. 

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted out the latest box office figures of Dhadak. He said, “And the BO numbers do the talking… #Dhadak packs an IMPRESSIVE TOTAL in its opening weekend… A consistent run on weekdays will help put up a STRONG Week 1 total… Fri 8.71 cr, Sat 11.04 cr, Sun 13.92 cr. Total: ₹ 33.67 cr. India biz.”

Dhadak released on 2791 screens out of which 2235 were in India and the rest overseas. So far the film, which has two newcomers in the lead role, has got the audience to the theatre but trade analysts feel that the real test will begin now, in the first week.
