Dhakaad starring Kangana Ranaut was released on the 20th of May 2022. Although the trailer promised a thrilling and brand new concept out on the table, the film was not able to attract an audience and was clashing with the release of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 starring Kartik Aaryan, Kiara Advani and Tabu. As Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 generated a lot of excitement among the audience, Dhakaad’s opening became poor.
