The Kangana Ranaut starrer Dhaakad was supposed to have a Diwali release this year but it seems that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has spelt trouble for the film. The producer of the movie Sohail Makhlai recently revealed to a leading online portal that Dhaakad release date has been postponed due to the pandemic. He revealed that the Kangana Ranaut starrer was to have its first major schedule in the month of April.
He added how that had to be cancelled due to the coronavirus. He went on to say that the team of the film had decided to keep the schedule in July as Kangana Ranaut's filming for her Jayalalithaa biopic had also got postponed from July. However, the producer revealed that he is now sceptical if the film will go on floors even in July. He said that he is now doubtful if he can start shooting the Kangana Ranaut starrer in July.
Sohail Makhlai was also quipped on the Dhaakad release date which was supposed to be during the festival of Diwali. He added that it is true that the team of the film announced the Kangana Ranaut starrer to have a Diwali release. He went on to say that even the schedule for the Dhaakad release date had been laid out but the coronavirus pandemic has hit the film industry hard. The producer hinted that the release date of the Kangana Ranaut starrer has also hit a roadblock due to this present situation.
