Dhaakad, Kangana Ranaut’s high-octane action film, has finally been given a release date. On April 8, 2022, the spy thriller starring the actress in the character of Agent Agni will be released in theatres. According to Bollywood Hungama, the filmmakers are currently in the post-production process, finalising the film’s cut at breakneck speed. As a result, they are confident in presenting the film as soon as possible.
Speaking the release date, Ranaut said, “Dhaakad is the kind of film that’s best relished on the big screens. It’s a deeply stirring subject and we have made it on a scale that only theatres could do justice to. The layered story at the heart of it needs to reach out to the masses and I am certain, the film will speak to women across the board. I can’t wait for the audience to meet Agent Agni on April 8.”
Director Razy Ghai added, “Dhaakad is a special movie that will always have my heart. As a team, we wanted to put our best foot forward. My intent was to ensure that Dhaakad stood at par with international action films. Our producers were a strong pillar of strength for us throughout. It was an incredibly challenging film to make. I am so thrilled for the audience to experience the rage and fury of Agni.”
Producer Sohel Maklai said, “We had a grand vision of a film and we couldn’t have asked for a better team to make this extravagant film. Kangana has done a masterful job. It’s the kind of cool, slick action film that will change the face of women-led action movies in Bollywood. It’s entertainment galore and I hope people enjoy watching the film as much as we enjoyed making it.”
The film also includes Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta in prominent parts, and it tackles problems including child trafficking and female exploitation. Tetsuo Nagata, an award-winning Japanese cinematographer, was brought in to work on this film, and an international stunt crew planned the stunts. Dhaakad was shot in Bhopal, Budapest, and Mumbai, and it looks like it will be a gritty and gruesome visual treat based on the trailer.
