Bollywood actress, Zareen Khan is all set to mark her comeback in the Punjabi film industry after a long haul of about five years in DAAKA. She will be seen playing the role of Lalli, a young Punjabi girl who falls in love with Shinda, a young boy from her own village that is being played by Gippy Grewal.
Daaka promises to be the first-of-its-kind action thriller in the Punjabi film industry with the perfect blend of drama, romance, and thrill.
“It has always been a great experience working with Gippy Grewal. He is a very humble and talented actor to work with,” shared Khan who marked her debut in the Punjabi film industry with Jatt James Bond about five years ago. Her leading role in this romantic thriller was critically acclaimed and appreciated by the audiences.
Zareen Khan also remembers having eaten ‘Ghee Shakkar’ for the first time in life which was brought to her by Gippy while shooting in Punjab.
Khan has been seen in the Punjabi film industry working only with Grewal, to which she shared, “Gippy not only makes me feel comfortable in my skin but also writes good quality content which motivates me to sign-up for his movies. It was a lot of fun shooting with him and the entire team of Daaka and needless to say, the final product has come to be beautiful. I am hopeful that the audience will enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it!”
Khan made her screen debut with a leading role in Anil Sharma’s period film Veer (2010) co-starring with Salman Khan for which she was nominated for the Zee Cine Award for Best Female Debut and ever since then, there has been no turning back.
Ahead of just a few days of its release, Khan has left no stone unturned to promote Daaka on her social media portals. “I am super excited about Daaka’s release and I would like to request all my fans to support me like they always do,” she stated in an interview.
Co-produced by Bhushan Kumar and Krishan Kumar under banner of T-Series with Grewal and Ravneet Kaur Grewal under Humble Motion Pictures, Daaka has been directed by Baljit Singh Deo. The storyline has been written Naresh Kathooria and Gippy Grewal. Daaka is scheduled to release worldwide on November 1, 2019.
