Dhaakad, touted to be a high-octane action drama, saw Kangana firing a machine gun in the teaser. In an earlier statement, she had said that the film will be a ‘turning point’ for Indian cinema, as it is a ‘one-of-a-kind female-led action film’ being made on a lavish scale. She added, “Dhaakad is not only a benchmark film for my career but will be a turning point for Indian cinema as well. 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.”
Talking about Dhaakad's release, producer Sohail said before the Coronavirus hit the country, the team has planned the schedule so as to meet the Diwali release. Now, there is no concrete road-map ahead of them. Sohail went on to assure that despite the delay, Dhaakad will be a treat for Kangana fans and will elevate her career to the next level. “Yes, we had announced a Diwali release. We had all the schedules worked out. But the virus has hit the entire entertainment industry. Nobody has a map for the road ahead. My director Razneesh Ghai is a high-profile name in the ad world. He has made three ads with Kangana and she shares a wonderful rapport with him. Our script for Kangana is sure to take her to the next level,” Sohail said.
