Aditya Sarpotdar, the guy behind highly praised Marathi films like ‘Classmates,’ ‘Mauli,’ and ‘Faster Fene,’ makes his Hindi directorial debut with ‘Kakuda.’
With equal parts comedy and horror, ‘Kakuda’ investigates the mythology of a bizarre curse in a time-traveling community. A perplexing ghost confronts the diverse trio, forcing them to challenge superstition and tradition.
In a rollercoaster trip filled with dread and excitement, the diverse three is met with a tough ghost that forces them to rethink superstition, tradition, and even love.
The film was written by the outstanding combo Avinash Dwivedi and Chirag Garg and developed by Salona Bains Joshi, the film’s Associate Producer, from a fledgling stage.
Talking about the film, director Aditya Sarpotdar says, “I’m very excited to collaborate with Ronnie Screwvala. We are treating the film like nothing short of a big-scale commercial movie. The casting was just perfect and the story will have you both at the edge of your seat and in splits.”
Says Sonakshi Sinha, “Considering the current situation, a fun comedy film is truly the need of the hour. I loved the script of ‘Kakuda’ from the moment I read it. It’s the kind of movie I would enjoy watching as an audience.”
Riteish Deshmukh adds, “I can’t wait to jump right in and work on the film with Sonakshi and Saqib. I personally love the horror-comedy genre and ‘Kakuda’ is a great opportunity for me to explore the part of a ghostbuster.”
Saqib Saleem says, “A great script, a gifted director, a supportive producer and supremely talented co-stars what more can one ask for in a film? ‘Kakuda’ is going to be a fun ride.”
Ronnie Screwvala says, “With a clear focus on homegrown ideas and development, I am excited to announce our horror-comedy ‘Kakuda’.. With a solid script, an extremely talented cast and driven director, we hope to push the boundary within the genre.”
Kakuda is presented by RSVP. The direct to digital horror-comedy goes on floors in various parts of Gujarat and is slated to release in early 2022.
