“Dhaakad was to have its first major schedule in April,” Makhlai — who produced Anubhav Sinha’s Dus and the Aishwarya Rai-Sunny Deol starrer Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya — tells Subhash K Jha. More from around the web
“Obviously, that got mowed down by the virus. We had then planned for July because Kangana is shooting for her Jayalalitha biopic. 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 Makhlai, whose last film Knock-Out was released eight years ago, “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.”
Makhlai is sure 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,” the producer adds.
