"We Rarely Have Heroines Performing Action Scenes In Our Films," Kangana Ranaut says.
The teaser of Kangana Ranaut starrer Dhaakad was unveiled on Tuesday. It depicts the Bollywood actress in an intense spy avatar, acing her action skills. She says that in cinema, we rarely have heroines performing action scenes in the real sense.
Kangana Ranaut has learned a number of martial art forms and combat techniques, including hand-to-hand combat to play Agent Agni with panache and elan. The actioner led by Kangana, stars Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta and Saswata Chatterjee. Kangana Ranaut has won plaudits for her performance in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Dhaakad. She says she is happy that someone has dared to visualise a woman in a commercial film as an action heroine.
Arjun Rampal plays the antagonist and his villainous turn is unlike any other. The actor trained hard for the action sequences for months to make them look authentic. Dutta will be seen in an avatar which will unveil an untapped side to her acting ability.
The film has been shot across Budapest, Mumbai and Bhopal. The action choreography has been designed by an out-an-out international crew. The film has a sensitive subject at its core and I laud at how it's been rendered on screen. Director Razneesh Razy Ghai on Kangana Ranaut: "We've seen no one as fiesty and bold as her". Dhaakad is slated to release on May 20. Presented by Soham Rockstar Entertainment Pvt Ltd in association with Kamal Mukut and Sohel Maklai.
