Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor are all set to make their mainstream Bollywood debuts with their film ‘Dhadak’, a remake of Marathi hit film ‘Sairat’. However, a couple of scenes of the lead pair were leaked online. The makers Karan Johar and Shashank Khaitan have left no stone unturned to keep the film under the wraps, and have ordered a no-phone policy on sets reportedly. One of the leaked clips that went viral over the weekend saw Janhvi, dressed in a yellow salwar kameez, and Ishaan in a yellow shirt and brown trousers, on a river bank. The other scene saw the female lead in a green saree. If the reports are anything to go by, the team found out that the leaks started to surface on Instagram and had spread like wildfire. The video featured the Jaipur schedule of ‘Dhadak’ that had taken place a month ago. Reports add that the film’s director Shashank Khaitan has been quite upset about the leaks and said that the team is working hard towards the security and hoped people to be more supportive on outdoor shoots.
