‘Kakuda’ Starring Sonakshi Sinha Premieres July 12


The much-awaited horror-comedy film ‘Kakuda,’ starring Sonakshi Sinha, Riteish Deshmukh, and Saqib Saleem, is set to release on July 12. The announcement was made alongside the reveal of the film’s first-look poster.

Director Aditya Sarpotdar shared the poster and release date on his Instagram handle. The poster features the lead trio, with a caption that reads, “Purushon Ke Hit Mein Jaari..- #Kakuda aa raha hai ’12 July’ ko, toh ghar pe rahein aur theek 7:15 baje, darwaza khula rakhna naa bhoolein.”

Film Synopsis

Set in the village of Ratodi in Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura district, ‘Kakuda’ tells the story of a village cursed for years. Each house in Ratodi has two doors: a normal-sized one and a smaller one. Every Tuesday at 7:15 PM, villagers must open the smaller door or face the wrath of Kakuda, who punishes the men of the house. The film explores the origins of Kakuda’s curse and the villagers’ attempts to lift it.

Director’s Insight

Director Aditya Sarpotdar expressed his excitement about the project, stating, “As a filmmaker and a fan of the horror-comedy genre, I find it incredibly fascinating to explore the delicate balance between fear and laughter. It’s a challenging task to make viewers simultaneously scared and amused, but with ‘Kakuda,’ I am confident that we have hit the right chord yet again.”

He praised the cast, saying, “I am thrilled to have worked with an exceptionally talented cast, including Riteish Deshmukh, Sonakshi Sinha, Saqib Saleem, and Aasif Khan, who have supported the narrative brilliantly by adding humor and emotions to the story. Their spotless comic timing and the way they portray genuine emotions have made my job as a director much easier. Together, we have crafted a unique and engaging story that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats, eagerly anticipating every twist and turn.”
