National, 9th November 2023: ZEE5, India’s largest home-grown video streaming platform and a multilingual storyteller, announced its next direct-to-digital film, Kadak Singh today. This will mark the second collaboration between national award-winning director, Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury and ZEE5 after the success of Yami Gautam starrer ‘Lost’ and the third direct-to-digital collaboration between national award-winning actor, Pankaj Tripathi and ZEE5 after the success of ‘Yours Truly’ and ‘Kaagaz’. Produced by Wiz Films (Andre Timmins, Viraf Sarkari & Sabbas Joseph), HT Content Studio (Mahesh Ramanathan), KVN and co-produced by Shyam Sunder and Indrani Mukherjee, Kadak Singh also stars Sanjana Sanghi, Jaya Ahsan, Parvathy Thiruvothu, Dilip Shankar, Paresh Pahuja and Varun Buddhadev in prominent roles and is set to premiere on ZEE5 later this year.
Kadak Singh is an engaging thriller filled with mystery and suspense. The movie follows the perplexing journey of AK Shrivastav (Pankaj Tripathi) as he battles retrograde amnesia, uncovering a web of conflicting narratives from his past. Amidst the process of piecing together his life, the film delves into his quest to expose the truth behind a significant financial crime.
Pankaj Tripathi going live on Instagram two days ago and seeming a little lost and confused and ending the live abruptly, leaving people perplexed now makes sense as he seems to be playing out his character suffering from retrograde amnesia live for his virtual audience, giving them a sneak-peek into his character. Kadak Singh is set to mark its World Premiere at IFFI, Goa later this month under ‘World Gala Premiere category and the high-profile event will be attended by the entire cast and crew amidst much excitement and anticipation. As for others, the movie is set to premiere on ZEE5 later this year.
Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India said, “From ‘Sirf Ek Bandaa Kaafi Hai’ and ‘Haddi’ to ‘Jaanbaaz: Hindustan Ke’ and ‘Taj’, this has been a good year for us at ZEE5 on the original movies and series front. We have stayed true to our commitment of customer first and brought forth India’s cultural essence through extraordinary and unique stories. Now we bring another exciting direct-to-digital release, Kadak Singh featuring the national award-winning director-actor duo Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury and Pankaj Tripathi. This is our second collaboration with Aniruddha (Tony da) after our last film, Lost and our third collaboration with Pankaj Tripathi. We are looking forward to Kadak Singh’s World Premiere at IFFI followed by its release on ZEE5 later this year".
Viraf Sarkari, Director Wiz Films and Producer of Kadak Singh said, “It’s been 12 years since I first thought of this story & started developing this film. I am so happy to finally realise this dream. We have done our best to put the best team of actors, director & crew to be a part of this film. On behalf of Wiz Films & my partners Andre Timmins& Sabbas Joseph I’d like to thank our Director Annirudha Roy Chowdhury, our producers KVN & Suprith, HT Content Studio’s Mahesh Ramanathan, & our co producers Shyam Sunder & Indrani Mukherjee, our writer Ritesh Shah and Music Director Shantanu Moitra for their love & support. Hope the audiences enjoy watching this film as much as we all did while making it”.
Director, Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury said, “Kadak Singh is a special film and talks about the responsibility of one government official towards the common people. Pankaj Tripathi and Sanjana Sanghi have done a fabulous job at portraying this complex father daughter story. Infact, I was in a paradise full of great actors including Parvathy and Jaya Ahsan and collaborators where each one of them has really pushed the boundary to deliver a terrific thriller. The highlight of this film is that it has relationships in different forms and how these relationships provide different perspectives and help the story move forward. It is also about a dysfunctional family coming on their own and becoming functional after a series of events leading to a rollercoaster of emotions. I hope that the film enriches people as it is a commentary on the society, and I am looking forward to another successful collaboration with ZEE5”.
