Kangana’s Film Will Miss Its Diwali Release



Sohail Makhlai  whose last film Knock-out  was released  eight years  ago, finds  his new project Dhaakad stuck  because  of the  Corona virus..

Speaking exclusively to this  writer  Makhlai who  has in past produced  the  Anubhav Sinha-directed Dus  and   the  Aishwarya –Sunny Deol starrer Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya,  clarifies,  “Dhaakad  was to have  its first major schedule in  April .  Obviously that got  mowed down  by the virus.We  had  then planned for  July because Kangana’s shooting for her Jayalalitha bio-pic got postponed from July. Now, I don’t see even that happening. I seriously  doubt we can start shooting in  July.”

So what about the  Diwali 2020 release?

Says Makhali, “Yes . we had announced a Diwali release. We had all the  schedules worked out. But the virus has hit  the entire entertainment industry. Nobody  has a map for  the  road ahead.”One thing that  Makhlai is sure about is that Dhaadak will be made . and made without any  compromise.  “My director Razneesh  Ghai is  a high-profile name in  the ad world. He has  made three ads with Kangana and she shares a wonderful rapport with him. Our script for Kangana  is sure to take her to the next level.”

Incidentally Kangana had starred  in Makhlai’s last production Knock-out also.

“We all excited about Dhaakad. But there is  no clarity right now about when  it would go on  the  floors.When we put  out the poster  little  did we  know  what was in store. In Mumbai,  cinema seems  like  very low priority right now. First we  need to survive this crisis.  Then we’ll see. Once  shooting is resumed we’ll plunge into Dhaakad.”
