Sensational actor Kangana Ranaut is going to appear as Bollywood’s first female-led actioner in a mega action entertaining movie ‘Dhaakad’ directed by Razneesh Ghai, reports Times of India.

‘Dhaakad’ is scheduled to release on Diwali 2020.

Few weeks ago, a teaser was released where Kangana appears on screen firing bullets from machine guns, which gives a glimpse into the scale and the vibe of the movie. She looked fierce in the first look.

According to Times of India, Kangana Ranaut has considered ‘Dhaakad’ in the same genre of Hollywood sci-fi action film series, ‘Resident Evil’.

Kangana shares, ‘Dhaakad is in the same space as Resident Evil. It 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.’

‘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.’ director Razneesh Ghai told Mid Day.
