While there have been many celebrities, who have recreated the scenes of the iconic film, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, especially the train sequence, the rumoured lovebirds, Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter had decided to pick a different scene. Dhadak debutants, Janhvi and Ishaan’s on-screen chemistry had made their fans root for some probable ‘off-screen’ romance of these two too! Janhvi and Ishaan praising and pulling each other’s legs in interviews and social media have made people speculate that something ‘more than friends’ surely brims between them.
On Movie Masti With Maniesh Paul, Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter had made an appearance and sharing a snippet from the same, she had written, “Watch me travel back to time with @ishaankhatter only on Movie Masti with Maniesh Paul #ThrowbackTo90s #LOLWithManieshPaul #MovieMasti @manieshpaul @ishaankhatter.” Janhvi and Ishaan could be seen recreating Raj Kapoor and Nargis' evergreen song, Pyaar Hua Iqraar Hua Hai and Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s Ghar Aaja Pardesi (Karwa Chauth scene) from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.
On October 13, 2019, Janhvi Kapoor had attended a family lunch with the Kapoors and for the potluck, she had cooked red rice veg biryani.

On September 5, 2019, Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput Kapoor had hosted the first birthday bash of their son, Zain Kapoor with only close ones in attendance. And speaking of close ones, Shahid’s half-brother, Ishaan Khatter doesn’t even need any mention! But what specifically needs to be called out is Ishaan’s rumoured ladylove, Janhvi Kapoor’s presence in the party of Shahid-Mira’s ‘close ones’! Shutterbugs had captured Janhvi making an entry at the party in a comfy-looking kurta-palazzo as she headed inside the Kapoor residence. Here’s a picture:
When two co-stars work in a film, they 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 Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter. Ishaan had 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, this is what the 23-year-old 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.”
It was on July 20, 2018, when Janhvi Kapoor had 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."
