Triptii Dimri and Siddhant Chaturvedi will headline Shazia Iqbal’s romance drama Dhadak 2, producer Karan Johar announced alongside a teaser on Monday.

“Presenting Dhadak 2 starring Siddhant Chaturvedi & Triptii Dimri. Directed by Shazia Iqbal.#Dhadak2 in cinemas 22nd November 2024,” Karan wrote on Instagram alongside the video.


The plot of the film centres around Vidhi (Triptii) and Nilesh (Siddhant), who are in love but belong to different castes. Society considers their love story unacceptable and is opposed to the idea of them being together.

“Jo sapna tum dekh rhi na Vidhi, usme mere liye koi jagah nahi hai (I have no place in your dream, Vidhi),” Siddhant’s voiceover is heard saying as he reflects on the class-barriers. “To phir ye bhi bata do Nilesh ki in feelings ka kya kru (Then tell me Nilesh what should I do with my feelings)?” Triptii’s voiceover responds.

The background score also emphasises their social differences and the challenges these differences pose to their union.

The storyline is based on Mari Selvaraj’s 2018 Tamil drama film Pariyerum Perumal, starring Kathir and Anandhi.

Produced by Karan Johar, Umesh Kr Bansal, Hiroo Yash Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Meenu Aroraa and Somen Mishra, Dhadak 2 also stars Saad Bilgrami in a key role.

The movie is slated to arrive in cinemas on November 22.

The original film, directed by Shashank Khaitan and jointly produced by Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta under the banner of Dharma Productions with Zee Studios as a sponsor producer, was a remake of Nagraj Manjule's 2016 Marathi film Sairat.

Dhadak featured Ishaan Khatter and debutant Janhvi Kapoor in the lead roles, with Ashutosh Rana, Ankit Bisht, Shridhar Watsar, Kshitij Kumar and Aishwarya Narkar in supporting roles. The film followed the love story of Madhu Bhagla (played by Ishaan) and Parthavi Singh Rathore (played by Janhvi).

Dhadak was released theatrically on July 20, 2018.
