Sometime back Zoya Akhtar announced his new project, Jee Le Zaara, featuring Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif and Alia Bhatt, which was based on women’s trip. And, now Taapsee Pannu has announced another movie – Dhak Dhak, which is again based on all girls trip!
As we all know Taapsee Pannu launched her own production house called Outsiders Films last year.
And, now her production house has collaborated with Viacom18 Studios in association with BLM Pictures and have announced their new project Dhak Dhak.
In the past, Viacom has given us many inspiring female-led films. Kahaani, Queen, Mary Kom, Padmaavat are some of them. Now, the studio has joined hands with Outsiders Films to bring a fascinating story of four women and their life-changing journey to the highest motorable pass in the world.
Featuring, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Ratna Pathak Shah, Dia Mirza and Sanjana Sanghi as protagonists, Dhak Dhak is co-produced by Taapsee Pannu, Pranjal Khandhdiya and Ayush Maheshwari. The film is co-written by Parijat Joshi and Tarun Dudeja & directed by Tarun Dudeja.
While sharing the details of the new project, Pannu says, “At Outsiders Films we aim to produce films that are meaningful and entertaining. We have attempted to give audiences a visual experience that they have rarely seen on screen. Dhak Dhak narrates the story of four women who realise that freedom has to be owned and never given. Viacom18 Studios has been a crucial part of my journey in the film industry, from Chashme Baddoor, Shabaash Mithu and now to Dhak Dhak. In Viacom18 Studios and Ajit, we have a partner who has a great foresight towards differentiated cinema. I am sure that this ride will be an enriching one.”
Talking about the collaboration, Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Studios says, “Dhak Dhak is a heart-warming story of four women undertaking a trip breaking out of their cocoons & discovering themselves through this journey of introspection & adventure. This was the perfect script and resonates well with the DNA of our storytelling.”
Producer Pranjal Khandhdiya adds, “The partnership with Viacom18 Studios is a significant step for Outsiders Films as we embark on a new journey and bring back the best of experiences on big screen for the audiences. Dhak Dhak is a first of its kind story about four strong characters and a memorable bike ride in the picturesque locations. The film is sure to captivate our audiences.”
At IFORHER, we are excited about the movie. Are you?
