NEW DELHI: Bollywood ‘Queen’ Kangana Ranaut has been making it to headlines for her upcoming action-drama ‘Dhaakad’. The film stars Kangana in lead role with Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta and Saswata Chatterjee in supporting roles. The film is scheduled to arrive in theatres on May 20 2022. The 35-year-old actor stars in the movie as Agent Agni.
On Friday, while promoting her film, Kangana raised the recent rocket-propelled grenade attack that took place at Punjab Police Intelligence Headquarters in Mohali. The attack was allegedly carried out by a group of separatists. While speaking on the subject, Kangana urged the government to take strict action against the culprits and called such hooligans as internationally funded terrorists. She further called for the need of having an ‘Akhand Bharat’.
Notably, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s idea of ‘Akhand Bharat’ includes not only Pakistan and Bangladesh but also Afghanistan, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Tibet. It terms the combined region as a ‘Rashtra’ based on ‘Hindu cultural’ similarities.
Speaking at an event today in Chandigarh, the Bollywood actress said, “Punjab has always been India’s part. Just because people raise issues for their own country, it doesn’t mean we give them part of our country. Such hooligans are internationally funded terrorists. Common citizens do not support them. We are Bhartiya and need Akhand Bharat. Whatever criminal activities are happening here, be it by jihadis or khalistanis, all should be dealt with law and order. The Government must take strict action against it.”
On May 9, a Rocket-Propelled Grenade (RPG) was fired at the Punjab Police’s Intelligence headquarters in Mohali, triggering a blast at the site, Punjab DGP Viresh Kumar Bhawra said. After the attack, a popular separatist group claimed took the responsibility for carrying out the attack. However, the authenticity of this claim by the separatist group is yet to be verified. Further investigation into the matter is underway.
Speaking of ‘Dhaakad’, the film is presented by Soham Rockstar Entertainment Pvt Ltd in association with Kamal Mukut, Sohel Maklai Productions and Asylum Films, ‘Dhaakad’ is set to be released on May 20, 2022 when it will compete with ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ at the box office.
