Kangana to star in Dhakkad
The film will be a turning point for Indian cinema, says Kangana
Mumbai: Actor Kangana Ranaut is set to star in Dhaakad, which will be "one of a kind female-led action film".
The project is helmed by Razneesh 'Razy' Ghai and is jointly produced by Sohel Maklai Productions and Asylum Films and co-produced by Qyuki Digital Media. "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.
"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."
The makers are looking to rope in a leading action director from Hollywood to choreograph the elaborate sequences. Filming will take place across India, South East Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
The actor' film JudgeMentall Hai Kya will soon hit the screens.
