Ridhi Dogra to make Bollywood debut with ‘Lakadbaggha’

Ridhi Dogra will be making her big screen debut as a leading lady with the Action Film ‘Lakadbaggha’ opposite Anshuman Jha. The film directed by Victor Mukherjee – goes on floor this month and is written by Alok Sharma.

Having seen the peak of success as a television actor and in the OTT Space (With shows like Asur & Married Woman) Dogra has hand picked this project as her debut vehicle because of the team behind it and the issue which the film is trying to magnify – the animal trade industry. She will be seen portraying a Crime Branch Officer in Kolkata & has some serious action sequences for which she has already begun training and work-shopping with Anshuman.

“When you set out to do the kind of work you wish to do, it finds you. I am not the kind of an actor who will simply jump to be a part of a film, it has to be meaningful, the process has to have some purpose. Which is why I have chosen ‘Lakadbaggha’ to be my feature film debut. I have always chosen to pick teams with depth over the superficial things which are important otherwise. The vibe, energy & passion is important. And from the first moment I saw Anshuman talk about the film, I knew I wanted to be a part of his process because there was passion, conviction & clarity. He, as an actor is so involved, that I wanted to be a part of that world he was so passionately envisaging. The icing on the cake is that the script has a Humane point of you. I am thrilled and relieved because this is the kind of work I wish to do and the kind of team I want to collaborate with. Very rarely does one come across an Action film whose story, at its core, is Universal and has heart. And this character – A Catholic-Bengali Cop, a bad ass cop, in Kolkata, very evolved & righteous, yet loving & passionate. I may have played a forensic cop before but this is very different – she takes things head on, she is incharge. She is a woman in power vis-a-vis a woman who is part of the team in power & that excites me. This character has empowered me in a way – training for the Action with Vicky & Anshuman. Also this character kicks ass (literally). I’m really enjoying the workshops & am looking forward to collaborating with Anshuman & doing Action for the first time & doing justice to it.”

Anshuman, who was last seen as a homosexual man in ‘Hum Bhi Akele, Tum Bhi Akele’ opposite Zareen Khan has been training for four months in Krav Maga and the film is expected to have raw, street-fight style action.
