Kangana Ranaut is currently busy gearing up for her upcoming action film, the much awaited Dhaakad
Actor Kangana Ranaut looked fierce in the first look of ‘Dhaakad’ and many compared her look from the first teaser to that of Angelina Jolie’s Lara Croft from the 2001 film, Tomb Raider.
Kangana Ranaut said that the film is closer to Hollywood horror franchise, Resident Evil
The actress is now gearing up for some of the most awaited films of 2019 and 2020, which include Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s sports film ‘Panga‘ in which she will play the role of a kabaddi player, Razneesh Ghai’s directorial Dhaakad and politician Jayalalithaa’s biopic.
In an interview, “Dhaakad is in the same space as Resident Evil. The movie has several chase sequences and sword fights. I will use all kinds of sophisticated weapons, including some of the latest machine guns. I believe one must pick up new skills for every movie. I don’t like to rush into any project as it makes me anxious.”
The first look of ‘Dhaakad’ was shared a while ago and her fans were left awestruck
Talking about the film, director Razneesh Razy Ghai told the tabloid, “Manikarnika was a period film that had Kangana training with swords. But since Dhaakad is a contemporary movie, the style of action is different. She will have to undergo a six-week programme — besides learning hand-to-hand combat and Krav Maga for two weeks each, she will dedicate a fortnight to learn how to use guns. A team of stunt directors from Thailand will train her.”
Dhaakad will be shot in Thailand, Budapest and Prague and is set to hit theatres on Diwali 2020. A portion of the film will also be shot in North India and the details will be worked out after Kangana completes her work on Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s ‘Panga’.
