'Dhak Dhak' features Fatima Sana Shaikh, Ratna Pathak Shah, Dia Mirza, and Sanjana Sanghi as protagonists.

Braving through extreme weather, amidst heavy rainfall, sandstorms and temperatures ranging from 48 degrees to -2 degrees, the team wrapped the difficult Ladakh schedule with surging emotions.

Talking about the first linear Delhi to Leh 40 days schedule, Dia Mirza said, “The most memorable instance for us as artists on this film was making it to the Khardung La pass!"

"It holds such deep significance to each of our characters in the story and each one of us felt it. Immense gratitude for our producers, the crew, and most importantly the Indian Army for making the experience smoother for us,” Mirza said.

Fatima Sana Sheikh, on her experience, said, “I was the most excited about this schedule as I love going for bike rides, but this journey pushed my limits, personally and as an actor."

"We made it through all the ups and downs and reached Khardung La! It was an unbelievable and exhilarating experience to shoot there and by the end of it I know that I’ve learned so much more about myself as a performer and a person,” said Fatima.

Meanwhile, Ratna Pathak Shah said, “If someone had told me 6 months ago that I would be riding a bike all the way to Ladakh at 65, I would have laughed! This film has been special to me in many ways."

Sanjana Sanghi stated that “There are some moments in life that simply don’t feel real, that is just larger than life! Being on the road for weeks had been a transformational journey, culminating at the breathtaking Khardung La pass. It’s been challenging and physically grueling, yet tremendously satisfying.”

Helmed by Tarun Dudeja, the film features Fatima Sana Shaikh, Ratna Pathak Shah, Dia Mirza, and Sanjana Sanghi. It will hit cinema screens in 2023.
