Directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, Dhanak is all set to regale the audience on 17th of June with its heartwarming story. The two child artists, Chotu and Pari, played by Krrish Chhabria and Hetal Gada, take us through a wonderful journey of self exploration while celebrating the love between siblings as they set out to meet their idols.
When asked about his inspiration behind the film, Nagesh said, “When I started writing it, I wanted to remind myself and the audience that there is still goodness left in the world. I wanted to go back to the India I grew up in, where people trusted each other. Dhanak reinforces the belief that in a world full of cynicism, life can have a happy ending”.
The director also spoke about the challenges he faced while filming in Rajasthan. “Whenever you shoot in Rajasthan, you realise the landscape is as lethal as it is beautiful. It’s dry, hot and sandy — your skin literally sizzles when temperatures soar over 50 degrees. And I had two kids as my lead actors. But, they were beyond adorable and a million times better than any adults”, says Nagesh.
Filled with Nagesh Kukunoor’s signature dessert locales and the themes of love and friendship, the film boasts of love and hope.
Dhanak is written and directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, and stars Krrish Chhabria and Hetal Gada as the loveable siblings. The rest of the cast includes Vipin Sharma, Rajiv Laxman and Gulfam Khan amongst others. The film is scheduled to release on June 17, 2016.
