Bollywood has long been filled with magical pairings that have driven audiences to cinema houses. From the yesteryear jodis, it was Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini’s chemistry among others that was a fan favourite. For millennial children, it was all about the iconic match of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. While the past few years have seen diverse on-screen duos, ranging from Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone to Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan, there is one reel couple that has been making headlines ever since they made their Bollywood debut in July last year. Yes, we’re talking about none other than Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter.

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!!
While the budding actors claim to be really close friends, reports suggest that they are indeed dating. They’ve sparked speculations of their romance every now and then, from making public appearances together to heading out for dinner dates and being spotted outside each other’s houses. However, according to sources, their relationship is not hidden from the family, especially Janhvi’s. The Kapoor clan reportedly knows everything about the two of them and have given a nod to Janhvi.
Ishaan was also by Janhvi’s side after the sudden demise of her mother and late veteran actor, Sridevi. While their chemistry was striking in Dhadak, their performances led fans to love them both together, be it on-screen or in real life. A leading daily has reported that Ishaan often goes to Janhvi’s place to not only spend time with her but with her father Boney Kapoor too. The producer is supposedly extremely fond of Ishaan and his talent. Janhvi’s sister Anshula Kapoor loves to tease the two young actors about what’s brewing between them too! Needless to say, small sis Khushi Kapoor remains as elated as the rest of the family. On the work front, Janhvi will next be seen in the Gunjan Saxena biopic titled Kargil Girl and Roohi Afza opposite Rajkummar Rao.
