Thalaivi’ is written by ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Manikarnika’ writer KV Vijayendra Prasad and ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai’ writer Rajat Arora. The release date of the film has not yet been decided after it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In an interview earlier, Kangana Ranaut shared, “Dhaakad is in the same space as Resident Evil. The movie has several chase sequences and sword fights. I will use all kinds of sophisticated weapons, including some of the latest machine guns. I believe one must pick up new skills for every movie. I don’t like to rush into any project as it makes me anxious.”
Dhaakad will be shot across various locations in India and abroad and will feature several high-octane action sequences. Sharing her experience as she shot for the teaser, she shared, “The guns that were used for the teaser were real and were very heavy. It took all my strength to lift one. My director Razy had a great time seeing me struggle with the machines having a good laugh. Hopefully, he will have me to use dummy guns for the shoot of the film.”olicy. OK
