Mumbai: Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer revenge drama movie Haddi, directed by debutant Akshat Ajay Sharma, will soon arrive on ZEE5, the streaming platform announced Monday.
Produced by Zee Studios, Sanjay Saha and Radhika Nanda’s Anandita Studios, the direct-to-digital movie also features filmmaker-actor Anurag Kashyap in a pivotal role.
Co-written by Sharma and Adamya Bhalla, Haddi is a crime revenge drama that will see Siddiqui portraying two distinct characters – Haddi and Harika, a transgender woman demonstrating remarkable versatility.
Sharma said Haddi revolves around the “intoxicating world of vengeance, violence, and power, delving into the very essence of a criminal’s psyche.”
