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 Ghai. Kangana and the entire cast talked about their roles and the actress emphasised on the challenges in portraying her fierce and daring personality.
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.”
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.”
