Ajit Andhare, COO, Viacom18 Studios stated, “Dhak Dhak is a heart-warming story of four women undertaking a trip and breaking out of their cocoons to discover themselves, through this journey of introspection and adventure. This was aperfect script that resonated well with the core of our storytelling.”
