Kangana Ranaut to star in action thriller Dhaakad

The film will be shot across India, South East Asia, the Middle East and Europe


Published: 06th July 2019

Kangana Ranaut has announced her next project, an action thriller titled Dhaakad. The film is helmed by ad filmmaker Razneesh Ghai. It is jointly produced by Sohel Maklai Productions and Asylum Films and co-produced by Qyuki Digital Media. Razneesh has written the script, along with writers Chintan Gandhi and Rinish Ravindra. Screenwriter Ritesh Shah is also associated with the project. 

Speaking about the film, Kangana stated, “Dhaakad is not only a benchmark film for my career but will be a turning point for Indian cinema as well. The film is mounted on a large scale, is a one-of-a-kind female-led action film, and is apt for a Diwali release. If it is received well, there will be no looking back for women in Indian cinema.”

The makers are planning to rope in a leading action director from Hollywood to choreograph the action sequences. Filming will take place across India, South East Asia, the Middle East and Europe. 

On making his feature debut with an action thriller, Razneesh said, “Being an army kid myself, I’ve always wanted to start off with an action film. This is a great time for a film of this genre and I’m looking to push the boundaries on this project with my visual style. I respect Kangana as an actor and we're excited to make a memorable film.”

The filmmaker added, “Dhaakad will be beautifully crafted and a sincere piece of action cinema, with a number of thrilling action sequences, and a female hero who’s as elegant as she is deadly.” 

Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming release is Judgementall Hai Kya. Co-starring Rajkummar Rao, the black comedy is set to hit screens on July 26.
