Janhvi Kapoor And Ishaan Khatter Are Dating And The Kapoors' Have Given A Nod To Their Relationship?

Pehli Baar Hai Ji, Pehli Baar Hai Ji… Iss Qadar Kisi Ki Dhun Sawaar Hai Ji… Jiski Aas Mein Hui Subah Se Dopehar… Sham Ko Usi Ka Intezaar Hai Ji- every time we hear the song, we are reminisced about Madhu’s (played by Ishaan Khatter) huge leap from the top of the tower to the pond where his Parvati (played by Janhvi Kapoor) was taking a dip. And ever since, we have been rooting for some probable ‘off-screen chemistry’ of these two! Admit it or not?

Time and again in interviews have we seen these two fun co-stars, Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter pull each other’s leg and at the same, be all-praises for each other. In fact, their off-screen chemistry has made people speculate that something ‘more than friends’ surely brims between Janhvi and Ishaan. Sadly every time, this duo has brushed aside all rumours and still continues to chill with each other every now and then. But if rumours are to be believed, there has been some major ‘work in progress’ in Janhvi and Ishaan’s life!

Janhvi and Ishaan

Well, as reported by the Mumbai Mirror, Ishaan Khatter is spotted frequently at Janhvi Kapoor’s house, the reason being that the Kapoors are very fond of the rising star. Apparently, Janhvi’s father, Boney Kapoor too, is extremely fond of Ishaan and he is really made to feel welcome there. Janhvi’s half-sister, Anshula Kapoor, who is extremely protective about her, takes utmost pleasure in teasing the two ‘reel-life’ turned apparent ‘real-life’ lovers, Ishaan and Janhvi! If one is to make a statement about the entire Janhvi-Ishaan ‘lovey-dovey’ scenario, what looks like it, the Kapoor fam-jam’s heart does ‘dhadak’ for these two!

It was on July 20, 2018, when Janhvi Kapoor made her debut in the film industry with her co-star, Ishaan Khatter in Dhadak. On the completion of one year of the film, Jahnvi had penned a heartfelt note. The same could be read as, “1 year of Dhadak. 1 year of Madhu and Parthavi. 1 year of this family, of your love, of all these memories and people that I will cherish my whole life and never let go of. Eternally grateful @karanjohar. With this film you’ve given me a family, an opportunity and set me on a path I’ve always only dreamed of. Thank you for being my guiding light and @shashankkhaitan every step of this journey I looked up to you more and more. Thank you for everything you’ve taught me, for being there for me and for giving us more love than we could have ever hoped for. @ishaankhatter Mr Madhukar Bagla, Nothing I say will be enough to sum up how happy I am that we went on this journey together and had each other to lean on, to argue with, and to find comfort in. Love you team Dhadak I miss you’ll everyday!!” To this, Ishaan's mom, Neliima Azeem had replied, "Bless you both so much love always."

Dhadak was Janhvi Kapoor’s first film in Bollywood, along with her co-star, Ishaan Khatter and their fantabulous chemistry had been widely discussed in media. So much so, that for once people even thought that there are high chances of Janhvi and Ishaan dating each other (which kind of holds true now!). Although the Takht actress has always outwardly denied any sort of love-thingy going on between the duo, Karan Johar and Arjun Kapoor didn’t cease to pull Janhvi’s leg at Koffee With Karan season 6. Speaking about Ishaan, Arjun had stated, “Well, he is always around her” and had further added about Ishaan, “No, no, because he jumps off buildings”, to which Janhvi had retorted, “(he was) just trying some stunts”, to which her half-brother stated, “To woo you!", Post which, an irritated Janhvi had replied, “Whose team are you on?"

Ishaan Khatter had turned 23 on November 01, 2018 and had chosen to celebrate his ‘big day’ with his star family, half-brother and sister-in-law, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor and close friend-cum-co-star, Janhvi Kapoor. A glimpse of the birthday boy captured by Mira, going gaga over his birthday cake had surely wanted us to walk up to him and pull his cheeks! Checkout the video here:



When two co-stars work in a film, you get to spend a lot of time with each other and in the process, become aware of each other’s habits. Same was the case for Janhvi and Ishaan. Ishaan Khatter had recently appeared on the second season of Anaita Shroff Adjania’s chat show, Feet Up With The Stars. When the host of the show, Anaita had asked Ishaan about one of the most annoying habits of Janhvi and this is what the Beyond The Stars actor had shared, "She is a mastikhor. She knows which buttons to press. It's irritating because sometimes, she will go on a tangent when it's not required and she will stay on it," further adding that she "fights when she doesn't want to fight.”

Recalling the first time Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor had met and how they had broken the ice, the former had shared, "The first time we met, we saw La La Land. Because she had not seen it and I had seen it five times. It's such a great film and she hadn't seen it, and I was like ugh. We started our exchange with films. By the time we got on set, we were bum chums.” (Also Read: Raj Kundra Once Again Gives Major 'Hubby Goals' As He Pens Love-Note For Wife, Shilpa Shetty Kundra)

Speaking about her first co-star, Ishaan Khatter in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Janhvi Kapoor had shared, “Till now, he is the only person I have worked with, and it was easy to team up with him because I think we get along really well. Also, as an actor, I am in awe of him and the way he approaches his scenes. Plus, he has great energy [as an actor], and it is probably because he is new too. But what helped me a lot was the fact that he is {a} more experienced {actor} than me.”
