With the changing times, Bollywood has given us several powerful narratives and some strong female characters who broke free from the shackles of society. We’ve seen a number of female-centric stories focusing on women empowerment in Bollywood’s bid to bring about a change. Viacom18 Studios has given us films like Kahaani, Queen, Mary Kom and so many more. And now the production giant is all set to team up with Taapsee Pannu’s Outsider Films and BLM Pictures for yet another female-centric film. Directed by Tarun Dudeja, Dhak Dhak stars Fatima Sana Shaikh, Ratna Pathak Shah, Dia Mirza and Sanjana Sanghi.

Dhak Dhak is co-produced by Taapsee Pannu, Pranjal Khandhdiya and Ayush Maheshwari and co-written by Parijat Joshi and Tarun Dudeja. The film is currently under production and will hit the theatres near us in 2023.
