Dhamaka also stars Super 30 actor Mrunal Thakur and Sacred Games star Amruta Subhash.
Director Ram, who is known for the hit Disney+ Hotstar series Aarya and the 2016 Sonam Kapoor-starrer Neerja, said, "Amita Madhvani and I, and our full team at Ram Madhvani Films with the team at RSVP, are thrilled that our film Dhamaka will be on Netflix. We know that this is our first step to a continuing relationship with a platform we highly respect and that will reach national and international audiences."
On working with Kartik, the director added, "Every day Kartik gave his all to the 360-degree system with which I work. His full involvement, his passion, his precise calibration as an actor is something that I hugely respect. It would be great to collaborate with him again because he made my work better."
