“After the success of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, it has been proven that audiences across the globe are loving larger than life films with a female hero. Dhaakad is not only a benchmark film for my career but will be a turning point for Indian cinema as well,” Kangana said in a statement, quoted IANS.
“The film is mounted on a large scale, is 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.”
Razy also spoke about the film and Kangana. “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 filming will begin early next year and will take place across India, South East Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
The makers are looking to rope in a leading action director from Hollywood to choreograph the elaborate action sequences.
Producer Sohel Maklai is convinced that audiences will love Kangana’s new avatar. He further added, “This film is an ambitious venture and the biggest one for me. I believe in Razy’s vision and I’m sure this will be a thrilling entertainer,”quoted IANS.
