Rekha was animated as she conveyed her excitement on the way to the screening held at Yash Raj Studios.
Sara Ali Khan, who will also make her debut this year, can surely feel a bit of what the newcomers Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor might be going through.
Ashutosh Gowariker, who is making ‘Panipat’ next, arrived with wife Sunita Gowariker for the screening.
Kunal Kemmu and Soha Ali Khan arrived together, though the latter’s brother Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan were not spotted.
Neha Dhupia, who had worked in Karan Johar’s recent short film of the anthology film ‘Lust Stories’, arrived with husband Angad Bedi.
‘Kaala’ actress Huma Qureshi was busy on her mobile phone as she came decked up for the evening.
Her brother Saqib Saleem had recently starred in ‘Race 3’ which went on to do a business of more than Rs 150 crores at the box office.
David Dhawan acknowledges the cameras on arrival. Can Janhvi and Ishaan become big stars like his son Varun, who also started with same banner?
Kartik Aaryan signed two films recently, ‘Luka Chuppi’ opposite Kriti Sanon and the remake of ‘Kirik Party.’
After being snapped earlier in the day hanging out together for lunch, Malaika Arora Khan and Karisma Kapoor caught this film too.
Malavika Mohanan had starred opposite Ishaan in Majid Majidi’s ‘Beyond the Clouds’, which was his debut.
Vishal Dadlani, along with his partner Shekhar Ravjiani, have composed music for several Karan Johar productions.
Sonakshi Sinha had starred in Karan Johar’s ‘Ittefaq’ and is also a part of the multistarrer ‘Kalank’ being shot currently.
Madhuri Dixit-Nene agreed to do ‘Kalank’, a film Janhvi’s mother Sridevi was to do before her death. Janhvi had later thanked Madhuri.
Shahid Kapoor, who is half-brother of Ishaan, seems to be pleading with paparazzi as he drove wife Mira to the screening.
Arjun Kapoor, who is Janhvi’s half-brother, has been expressing his excitement for the film for long now.
Janhvi’s father Boney Kapoor is also a producer, but she decided to make her debut with Karan Johar’s banner.
Janhvi’s sister Khushi was also seen arriving at the screening. She had broken down at the trailer launch, and it’s likely she did again when she watched the film.
Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions has produced the film along with Zee Studios, who had made the original.
Shashank Khaitan is the director of the film and arrived with wife Nalini. After two hits of ‘Dulhania’ franchise, can he achieve a hat-trick?
The debutante Janhvi Kapoor seems to be confident if we go by her smile on the way to the screening.
She was accompanied by half-sister Anshula, who has become very close to her since the death of Sridevi.
Ishaan acknowledges the cameras on the way to watch his second film, which is based on the Marathi film ‘Sairat.’
Ishaan arrived with his mother, Neelima Azeem, who is also Shahid Kapoor’s mother and an actor as well.
Ishaan’s father Rajesh Khattar is also an actor and would surely be excited about his entry into films with a big banner venture.
