Kangana Ranaut: ‘Dhaakad’ has longest fight sequence in Hindi cinema

Evoking the image of an Indian Black Widow, the fiery and enigmatic Agent Agni aka Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is set to enthrall the audiences in her movie ‘Dhaakad‘.
She recently visited the Capital along with co-actors Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta, producer Deepak Mukut and director Razneesh GhaiKangana and the entire cast talked about their roles and the actress emphasised on the challenges in portraying her fierce and daring personality.

She spoke about how the movie will compete with Kartik Aaryan’s ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ at the box office.
Speaking about her look and how she prepared for her role, Kangana shared: “I would like to thank our director for taking up this project and doing a movie with me while everyone suggested to him, ‘how you can do your first movie with Kangana’. I tried to give my best.”

She added while pointing towards the director: “He was most apprehensive about my weight gain due to ‘Thalaivii’ and always asked me, ‘You will lose this weight right? you will lose? and I used to respond, ‘Yes I will,” she laughs and adds: “Even I used to think whether I will be able to be in shape again for this role after looking at his face.”

Razneesh added what was on his mind when he took up this project and Agent Agni’s character: “I wrote the stories for two other guys to portray physically strong woman characters and I wanted to physically push Kangana as she had done ‘Thalaivii’ and so it was a gradual process to lose weight. I wanted to inspire children and today’s generation with this movie.”

Kangana shared: “I wanted to use fake guns for this movie as I got hurt while shooting for ‘Manikarnika’ but my director was keen that I should use real weapons. As far as my training is concerned, since childhood I have been learning from my action master Surya Narayan ji, from whom I am learning from the age of 16 or 17, but never got such a role except a few like ‘Krish’ or ‘Manikarnika’. Moreover, for the movie, a crew came from Hollywood and also from Korea for the training. So, it’s a team effort and no single person can be given the credit.”

She claimed: “This movie has the longest fight sequence in Hindi cinema, approximately 14 minutes.”

Continuing the conversation, Arjun who will be seen as Rudraveer, an international human and arms trafficker in the movie, throws light on his character.

He defined his personality as ‘stylish, brutal, lean, evil-someone without feelings’. “I don’t think anybody has presented me like this. I am returning to the big screen after a long hiatus, and I don’t think I could have had a better opportunity and a better director to come onboard and do this wonderful film.”
