Arjun Rampal has stated that he takes up women-centric films as a way of paying tribute to his mother, who raised him as a single parent. Arjun will soon be seen in Dhaakad, Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming action film.
Arjun was speaking at the Dhaakad song launch in Jaipur. Kangana debuted the song “She’s on Fire” at the event, which took place at Jaipur’s famous cinema hall Raj Mandir. Badshah composed and wrote the song, which he and Nikita Gandhi performed.
According to a report, Arjun stated, “My mom raised me as a single parent. Whenever I get an offer for a woman-centric film, I take it up immediately. This is my way of paying homage to my mother. I know how strong she was.” Arjun’s mother, Gwen Rampal, died of cancer in 2018.
Kangana shared her experience shooting for the song at the event, saying, “I had a blast shooting for the song as I love the way Badshah composes them. They are full of life and the tempo gets you grooving. She’s On Fire showcases Agent Agni’s power, how she is on this mission and how nothing can stop her from achieving her goal.”
Badshah also discussed the creation of the number. “The brief for the song was to compose a tune that would be catchy but would also capture the essence of the film and reflect the spirit of its main characters. The title of the song is based on Agent Agni and the way she powers through her mission in the film. Rampal plays the menacing antagonist and the song pits the two of them against each other,” he said.
Dhaakad, directed by Razneesh Ghai, also stars Divya Dutta. It will be released in theatres on May 20.
