Siddhant narrates in a voiceover, “Jo sapna tum dekh rahi ho Vidhi usme mere liye koi jagah nahi hai (The dream you have Vidhi, there’s no room for me in it).” Triptii responds, “Toh phir yeh bhi bata do Neelesh ki in feelings ka kya karun (Then tell me Neelesh, what should I do with my emotions)?”

Karan and Siddhant share posts

Sharing the update, Karan wrote in Hindi, “Yeh kahani hai thodi alag kyuki ek tha raja, ek thi raani, jaat alag thi, khatam kahani (This tale is quite different because there was a king, there was a queen – their castes were different… end of story). Presenting Dhadak 2 starring Siddhant Chaturvedi & Triptii Dimri. Directed by Shazia Iqbal. #Dhadak2 in theaters 22nd November 2024.”

Sharing the motion poster, Siddhant Chaturvedi penned, “Ek raja, ek rani, ek kahaani, do dhadkane (One king, one queen, one story–two heartbeats).” “The film delves into societal barriers of class and status, weaving a narrative of love that seems unattainable. Or is it?”

Last year Karan dismissed Dhadak 2 rumors

Last year, following speculations about Karan working on Dhadak 2 with Siddhant and Triptii, he dispelled those rumors. On Instagram Stories, he clarified, “To set the record straight, we (Dharma Productions) are NOT working on a film titled DHADAK 2, despite what various articles suggest…”

Previously, Pinkvilla reported via a source, “Dhadak was essentially a profound love story, with the protagonists challenging societal norms to stay together. The filmmaker sees potential in this theme for a franchise value. After considering multiple ideas, the filmmaker has approved a concept that qualifies as Dhadak’s sequel.”
