his year, Karan Johar, the guardian angel of Bandra star kids and buyer of regional film rights has set his eyes on ruining… err remaking Nagraj Manjule’s Sairat. Clearly, the copy-paste disaster that was Ok Jaanu seems to have had zero effect on his life goal of appropriating every culture.

His latest edition of #MakeBollywoodMediocreAgain titled Dhadak features Sridevi’s elder daughter Janhvi Kapoor reprising the role of Archi, and Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishaan Khattar essaying Parshya. The film, which he calls an adaptation of the Marathi Sairat, and not essentially a remake, is helmed by Badrinath Ki Dulhania maker Shashank Khaitan, produced by Dharma Productions, and releases on July 20.
