Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter have been busy off-late with promotional activites of their upcoming film Dhadak. The two actors were in Delhi recently promoting Dhadak at several of the media outlets and answering intriguing questions at press conferences. Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi Kapoor has been the centre point of these promotions as fans are excited to watch the Bollywood legend’s actress make her debut on the big screen.
In one such interview with Aaj Tak, the Dhadak actress was asked who she likes better, Ranbir Kapoor or Ranveer Singh? The actress, after some deliberation revealed that if she had to pick one, she would go with Ranveer Singh. Why? She had a mesmerising experience watching Ranveer Singh in Bajirao Mastani (2015).
Her co-star Ishaan Khatter however chose Ranbir Kapoor over Ranveer Singh. “I would pick Ranbir Kapoor and my favourite performance of him is in his film Tamasha,” he said. And almost immediately Janhvi reacted to it saying: “Oh S**t! Yeah.” Too late now Janhvi, you had your turn.
The two actors were also asked to reveal their favourite on-screen actress and both chose Deepika Padukone. The choices were between Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone and both actors unanimously picked Deepika.
Now, one would have thought that Deepika’s performance in Bajirao Mastani or Padmaavat would be their favourite instead Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter revealed that it was her performance with Ranbir Kapoor in Tamasha that made them go wow!
The two actors were also asked for their pick between Hollywood celebrities. Between Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, two Academy Award winning Hollywood legends, both actors chose Pacino over De Niro and revealed that Scent of a Woman was their favourite performance of the actor.
Similar, the interviewer also asked them to chose between Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, the other two Hollywood’s legendary actors and both Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter chose Leo over Tom but not without mentioning that it was a really tough choice because both actors are such amazing performers.
Dhadak, which is an adaptation of the Marathi film Sairat has been directed by Shashank Khaitan and produced by Karan Johar and his Dharma Production. The film will hit theatres on July 20.
