ZEE5 Global, the world’s largest platform for South Asian content, has announced the World Digital Premiere of Dhaakad on 1st July. In addition to a strong line-up of original shows and movies, ZEE5 Global has been consistently bolstering its portfolio by acquiring World Digital Premiere rights of many theatrical releases including RRR, The Kashmir Files, Valimai, Antim, Jhund, Attack, and others. Dhaakad is yet another strong addition to the binge-worthy list as it will help appeal to distinct viewers with varied choices.
Directed by Razneesh Ghai, Dhaakad is a spy thriller with Kangana Ranaut in lead and Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta and Saswata Chatterjee in supporting roles. Shot by Japanese cinematographer Tetsuo Nagata (La Vie en rose), Dhaakad is truly international in scale and style as the action sequences are designed by an international crew. With blood, action, gunshots and characters with their own set of eccentricities, Dhaakad is a bold movie with a fierce, feisty and fearless Kangana in lead.
Dhaakad revolves around Agni (Kangana), a special agent with the International Task Force, who is assigned the mission to eliminate an international human and arms trafficker Rudraveer (Arjun Rampal), who is also running a coal mafia. During this battle, her tragic childhood past comes to the forefront more often than she would want and she unearths rather shocking truths about her tragedy, one of which is even linked to Rudraveer.
Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global said, “ZEE5 Global has constantly brought rich stories across diverse genres and languages that feature the best talent. Adding another action-packed film to our rich content library, we are glad to announce the premiere of Kangana Ranaut starrer Dhaakad for our global viewers. The film showcases Kangana in an all-new fierce avatar with an intriguing story plot and exceptional action sequences and we look forward to it being an enthralling watch.”
Producer Deepak Mukut said, “Dhaakad is a film that’s very close to all of our hearts. Usually, action films are associated with the male actors in our industry, but here we made a film that redefines the action genre for actresses in Indian films and we are really proud of it. We wanted the vibe and feel to be at par with the well-known international action movies and we were successful in achieving that. The action pieces were appreciated on the big screen and now that the film is released digitally, we are surely more people will laud our attempt. Kangana delivered a superlative performance in Dhaakad, paving a new path for female-led action films. I am so glad that the film is now reaching out to wider audiences through ZEE5. Dhaakad is a fruit of our labour, and we are extremely proud to present it to the audiences worldwide through this platform.”
Kangana Ranaut said, “Dhaakad was an intense film which required a lot of physical and emotional transformation. Indian films can be of international standards and can have female action heroes in the lead. Get ready to watch me as a killing machine only on ZEE5 from 1st July”.
