Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who is all set to wow the audience in Judgementall Hai Kya alongside Queen co-star Rajkummar Rao will now star in Dhaakad, which will be "one of a kind female-led action film". The project is helmed by Razneesh "Razy" Ghai and is jointly produced by Sohel Maklai Productions and Asylum Films and co-produced by Qyuki Digital Media.

"Kangana Ranaut in action entertainer #Dhaakad... Filming to commence early next year in #India and international locales... Action director from #Hollywood to choreograph elaborate sequences... Directed by Razneesh ‘Razy’ Ghai... Produced by Sohel Maklai... #Diwali 2020 release", writes trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

"After the success of 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi', it has been proven that audiences across the globe are loving larger than life films with a female hero. 'Dhaakad' is not only a benchmark film for my career but will be a turning point for Indian cinema as well," Kangana said in a statement.

"The film is mounted on a large scale, is one of a kind female-led action film, and is apt for a Diwali release. If it is received well, there will be no looking back for women in Indian cinema."

Speaking about the film and Kangana, Razy said: "Being an army kid myself, I've always wanted to start off with an action film. This is a great time for a film of this genre and I'm looking to push the boundaries on this project with my visual style. I respect Kangana as an actor and we're excited to make a memorable film."

The makers are looking to rope in a leading action director from Hollywood to choreograph the elaborate sequences.

Filming will take place across India, South East Asia, the Middle East and Europe.

Producer Sohel Maklai said: "This film is an ambitious venture and the biggest one for me. I believe in Razy's vision and I'm sure this will be a thrilling entertainer. Audiences are definitely going to love Kangana's new avatar."

Meanwhile, the actress' film "JudgeMentall Hai Kya" will soon hit the screens.
