The teaser of Dhamaka, the upcoming Hindi film starring Kartik Aaryan in the lead, was released by Netflix on Tuesday.
According to a press release issued by the streaming giant, the film’s plot unfolds as a news anchor gets stuck in a situation with a mysterious bomb blast. With the series of ups and downs and events that follow, he must make a choice between his career or the humanist in him.
Aaryan will be making his debut on Netflix as a “frustrated ex-news anchor” named Arjun Pathak in Dhamaka, which is directed by Ram Madhvani. The film also marks the first collaboration for the actor-director duo.
While Madhvani mentioned that he wanted to work with Aaryan for a few years, Aaryan said: “Working with a maverick like Ram Madhvani has allowed me to explore and showcase a new facet of my personality.”
Dhamaka also features Mrunal Thakur, Amruta Subhash, Vikas Kumar and Vishwajeet Pradhan in pivotal roles.
Speaking about Thakur’s character, Madhvani said, “I feel blessed that Mrunal agreed to act in our film as a special appearance . She is the films moral centre and she brings an honesty and a believability to her performance that I have had the privilege of being at the receiving end of as a director. Mrunal is a very rare talent.”
According to Madhvani, Subhash is one of those actors whose performances “you remember and note down and say ‘I want to work with this actress‘. I feel generations to come will remark on her acting prowess.”
While director and producer Madhvani directed the Sushmita Sen-starrer Aarya, which is streaming on Disney+ Hotstar, Dhamaka is his first collaboration with Netflix.
Kumar and Pradhan, who had previously featured in Aarya, are once again joining hands with Madhvani in Dhamaka.
The film’s motion poster was shared by Aaryan on his birthday in November 2020.
Produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP Movies and Ram Madhvani Films in association with Lotte Cultureworks, Globalgate Entertainment & Lionsgate, Dhamaka will premiere on Netflix across 190 countries this summer.
