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.
While the poster looked a bit inspired from Angelina Jolie’s iconic Lora Croft look, Kangana vows the film will change Indian cinema.
“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.”
Speaking about the film and Kangana, Razy said, “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 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.
Meanwhile, Kangana is currently busy working on her upcoming project, JudgeMentall Hai Kya, which is set to hit the screens soon.
