Here’s why Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Dhaakad’ has been postponed until May 2022, despite the release of ‘KGF 2’ and ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ in April.
Kangana Ranaut is working on a number of projects in Bollywood. The actress has had a string of hits since the success of ‘Thalaivi,’ including ‘Tejas’ and ‘Dhaakad.’ ‘Dhaakad,’ which was supposed to be released on April 8, 2022, has been pushed back to May 2022, according to Pinkvilla.
The makers of ‘Dhaakad,’ according to a source close to the project, are avoiding box office competition because big projects are set to release that month. While ‘Dhaakad’ did not clash with any major releases, Kannada superstar Yash’s ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ and Bollywood actor Aamir Khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ will be released the following week.
The producers have decided to give ‘Dhaakad’ a longer run at the box office due to the strong competition from both of these films. The new release date for the film is set for May 20, 2022.
Ranaut has also shared behind-the-scenes photos from the ‘Dhaakad’ shoot on several occasions. In the film, which was billed as India’s first female-led action thriller, the actress will play a fierce fighter.
For her role as agent Agni, the actress underwent extensive training.
Arjun Rampal, a Bollywood actor, also has a significant role in the film.
The film, directed by Razneesh Ghai, was originally set to hit theatres in October of 2021. However, due to the pandemic-related delays and theatre closures, the producers have set a release date of 2022.
Meanwhile, in theatres, ‘KGF: Chapter 2’ and ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ will compete. The box office is likely to be dominated by big-budget films. Yash’s film is an action thriller and a follow-up to the hugely successful ‘KGF,’ whereas Khan’s film is the official Hindi adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film ‘Forrest Gump.’
