Shashank Khaitan is the director of the film who had earlier helmed Alia Bhatt in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhani and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. He had earlier exclaimed Ishaan and Janhvi as are very hardworking. “Janhvi and Ishaan are great people and are very hardworking. These are the two things that I always look for in actors,” PTI reported. Sairat, the Marathi film on which the upcoming flick is based had won a National Award. The basic premise of caste difference and honour killing is the same just like its inspiration but he has definitely made some variations to the Hindi version. Karan Johar has acquired the remake rights of Nagraj Manjule-directed “Sairat”, which created history in the Marathi cinema by entering the elite Rs 100-crore club and became a phenomenon as it ran in cinema houses for over 100 days, especially in Maharashtra.
