Kangana Ranaut goes all guns blazing with her action entertainer Dhaakad

Published

When it comes to setting milestones in our entertainment industry, there’s no actress we can think of other than Kangana Ranaut, who has done as much female-centric and diverse roles in the past decade. Be it starring in grandeur films like Manikarnika where she picked up ‘Talwars’ to fight for the freedom of our nation or playing a simple homebred girl like Rani in ‘Queen’ who dares to go on a solo-trip to Europe just because it was her dream; Kangana has never shied away from playing off-beat characters.
Just recently, the teaser poster of her upcoming film, Dhaakad, was released where her silhouette is seen holding guns and looking like a complete warrior. Now, the makers of the film have released the first poster of the film, where Kangana is seen in a combat mode. When asked about making a female led action film, Director Razy Ghai said, “There is a big void when it comes to female-oriented action films. I haven’t heard of a lead heroine in an out-and-out action entertainer in a contemporary space. That’s why we wanted to explore this genre.”
Apart from the fact that this is the first time Kangana Ranaut is doing such a character; choosing this role in a high-budget action film also makes her the first female actor, who will be seen holding machine guns and fighting for a cause, with all guns blazing. Speaking on working with Kangana in one of a kind project and shooting action sequences, Ghai said, “She is an intelligent actor who understood that there is an opportunity to attempt something completely different. We are constantly having brainstorming sessions with her, and her ideas have further elevated the film. I’m not a fan of gravity-defying action sequences, so we will show realistic action. Since the film has many action set-pieces, we are looking at stunt coordinators with different skill sets. We have already met action directors from Hong Kong and Thailand for the Gun Fu [a mix of guns and martial arts] sequence.”
Slated to release on Diwali, 2020; ‘Dhaakad’ is mounted  to be the biggest action entertainer of the year by the looks of this new poster. The Director revealed that there are plans in place to shoot the film  in Thailand, pockets of Europe, mainly Budapest and Prague, and in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. One schedule of the film will be shot in North India and the details will be worked out once Kangana finishes work on Panga.
Produced by Sohail Maklai productions and Asylum films; the film is set to go on floors by early 2020.

Suparna Marwah fondly remembers her ‘No jaggery No shoot’ incident on the sets of San’84 Justice ?

Kabir Singh, Patiala House actress Suparna Marwah who plays an important role in the upcoming film San 84 Justice ? is very fond of jaggery and her fondness for jaggery became quite an eventful incident on the sets of the film. Her assistant would always keep a nice little piece of a special fine quality jaggery wrapped in a foil for her to use anytime during the shoot. She also used this as her special formulae to clear throat and maintain good voice texture as jaggery is known to serve as a natural energy booster and stimulant also very good for throat.

However one late night shoot schedule followed by an early morning next day lineup led her assistant to forget the jaggery at home and she ended up without it at the shoot. All was well until Suparna asked for her favourite savoury and there was none, the nervous girl shivered and explained her limitation in getting it, she was very sure there was a storm coming her way and Suparnaji being the actor of class that she is made it look and sound exactly like that through her convincing expressions. The nervous girl threw all the apologies through a bouquet of words that she possibly could while Suparna ji was clear that No Jaggery no shoot till the drama continued for few minutes till Suparna ji bursted into laughed and gave it away that she was simply pulling a fast one

Suparna continued to laughs her heart out while we spoke to her about this. She described how the shoot ended successfully even with with no jaggery. This did become one of the popular lines on the sets No Jaggery No shoot and as a result of this next day there were boxes of Jaggery brought in by various people including a special one that was gifted fondly by Ashish Sahdev who had important scenes lined up with her and Ashish told us, I told Suparna ji, well I have made sure my scenes with you are going perfectly smooth, both had good laughs all through as they shot further. Suparna was actually overwhelmed with the love poured in from everyone on the sets with this lovely gesture. Director Sandeep Rana too had his take in this incident, he said It was a moment of pride for me to see my San 84 Justice team bond like a family and as a director there is nothing better to achieve, I knew from this moment we will have a good film in hand
