Arjun Kapoor, who made his debut with Habib Faisal's Ishaqzaade, had some words of advice for his half-sister, Janhvi Kapoor, who marks her debut with Dharma's Dhadak.
The film, whose trailer is expected to drop today, is the Hindi adaptation of the Marathi blockbuster Sairat and features Janhvi, alongside Ishaan Khatter. It has been directed by Shashank Khaitan, whose last film was the blockbuster Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014).
Before the trailer officially launches, Kapoor, who like Janhvi, lost his mother months before the release of his first film, shared a string of emotional messages. He said he was putting it out there as he couldn't be there in person on her big day.
Tomorrow you will be part of the audience forever #JanhviKapoor cause your trailer comes out... Firstly, sorry I'm not there in Mumbai but I'm by your side, don't worry. (1/3) pic.twitter.com/a1Go2fhZSG— Arjun Kapoor (@arjunk26) June 10, 2018
I just wanted you to know this profession is amazing if you work hard, be honest, learn to take the accolades with the brickbats, respect opinions, yet follow your own path & instinct. It's not gonna be easy but I know you are ready for all the madness that will ensue. (2/3)— Arjun Kapoor (@arjunk26) June 10, 2018
Incidentally, Ishaqzaade, too, was loosely inspired by Romeo and Juliet and went on to become one of the biggest hits of 2012.
