New Delhi, May 3 Prime Video on Wednesday unveiled the trailer of the upcoming crime-drama series ‘Dahaad’, starring Sonakshi Sinha in the lead.
The series is created by Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar, and is directed by Kagti along with Ruchika Oberoi. Produced by Excel Media & Entertainment and Tiger Baby, with Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar, Reema Kagti, and Zoya Akhtar as executive producers,
It also features Vijay Varma, Gulshan Devaiah, and Sohum Shah in pivotal roles.
Dahaad’s riveting trailer unveils the fierce tension at the local police station where Anjali Bhaati, played by Sonakshi and her colleagues are on the lookout for an unsuspecting serial killer on the loose. What begins as a series of mysterious disappearances sets off an investigative hunt as they race against time, piecing together clues before another innocent woman loses her life.
“Dahaad has a compelling narrative and finely detailed characters. It is remarkably well written and impeccably executed,” said Aparna Purohit, head of India Originals, Prime Video.
“The exceptional performance by the cast make the tension in the show palpable and dynamic ensuring that our viewers are absorbed till the very end. We are incredibly excited as it adds yet another chapter in our extended association with the team at Excel and Tiger Baby,” added Aparna.
“Dahaad, for me, is an extremely special project. It not only marks my streaming debut, it is also the first ever Indian series to be presented at the 2023 Berlinale Film Festival,” said Sonakshi.
“Anjali Bhaati is different from any other character I’ve played before. Reema and Zoya have created a character that is not just unafraid, but has the potential to become a role model for the generation. Working with this cast and crew has been incredible and I am excited to be bringing this series to audiences across the world with Prime Video,” she added.
“Dahaad is a gritty-and-gripping shot of adrenaline in a way that is nothing short of special,” shared Vijay.
“It is also the most challenging-yet-rewarding character I have played. Anand is a simple teacher, a family man who spends his weekends teaching under privileged kids. But there is more to him than meets the eye, and that is where the mystery lies! Reema and Zoya are some of the finest filmmakers of our time, and with Dahaad, they’ve taken it a notch higher. I’m thrilled to be associated with this series and to reunite with Excel Entertainment, Tiger Baby and Prime Video. After seeing the positive response at Berlinale, I’m looking forward to how viewers react to it, both India and overseas,” added Vijay.
‘Dahaad’ is an eight-part crime drama that follows sub-inspector Anjali Bhaati and her colleagues in a small-town police station. It all starts when a series of women are mysteriously found dead in public bathrooms, and sub-inspector Bhaati is tasked with the investigation.
At first, the deaths appear to be clear-cut suicides, but as the cases unravel, Bhaati begins to suspect that a serial killer is on the loose. What follows is a riveting game of cat and mouse between a seasoned criminal and an underdog cop, as she pieces together evidence before another innocent woman loses her life.
It will stream from May 12.
