Kangana Ranaut is one actress who has rewritten the rules of the Industry and has taken up challenging roles in each film. Her upcoming film, Dhaakad, is a pathbreaking action entertainer, where for the first time ever, an actress will be headlining the film and will be engaged in heavy-duty combat.
Her first look has been revealed in the latest teaser where we see her all filled with anger as she goes on a combat mode with guns in her hand as she rains bullets into her target. The most breathtaking part is her fiery look as it gives us all the chills needed
Scheduled to release on Diwali 2020, Dhaakad will be mounted on a large scale, shot across multiple locations India and overseas and will feature many high-octane sequences. The film will be made on a lavish budget which will rival any mega entertainer made in Indian cinema. Not only that, but the makers have also met action directors from Hong Kong and Thailand for training Kangana for Gun Fu; which is a mix of martial arts and gun sequence.
Talking on the same Kangana said, “ The guns that were used for the teaser were real and were very heavy. It took all my strength to lift one. My director Razy had a great time seeing me struggle with the machines having a good laugh. Hopefully, he will have me to use dummy guns for the shoot of the film. "
Speaking on why it was important to use real guns, Director Razy Ghai said, “Being an army kid, I have a lot of knowledge about weapons. I thought it was necessary to use a real gun as you can easily make out (a fake one) on screen.” The shooting of teaser was preceded by Kangana’s training on combat, and Ghai revealed how he was a part of it too, “I am aware of how it functions, so along with a stunt coordinator, I helped Kangana understand what needs to be done. We plan to roll in February 2020 and Kangana has given us two months for preparation.”
Dhaakad is being Directed by Razneesh “Razy” Ghai, written by Razy Ghai, Chintan Gandhi, and Rinish Ravindra and has a screenplay by Ritesh Shah. The film has been produced by Sohail Maklai productions and Asylum films, co-produced by Qyuki Digital Media.
