Bollywood Unveils Spooky Comedy with ‘Kakuda’ Trailer Release

The bustling city of Mumbai has once again become the epicenter of the Indian cinematic world as the trailer for the upcoming film “Kakuda” made its grand debut. The film stars Sonakshi Sinha, who recently tied the knot, alongside the ever-charming Riteish Deshmukh and the versatile Saqib Saleem. The trio’s latest venture has already captured the imagination of movie lovers with its unique blend of horror and comedy, as evident from the highly anticipated trailer.

In “Kakuda,” audiences will be treated to the story of Sunny, played by Saqib Saleem, a character who is less educated but quick to love. He finds a soulmate in Indira, portrayed by the newlywed Sonakshi Sinha. The two lovebirds marry and move to the quaint and seemingly serene village of Ratodi. However, their blissful life takes a startling turn on their wedding night.

The twist in the tale comes with the curse of ‘Kakuda,’ a malevolent ghost who harbors a terrible vengeance. Sunny, in a moment of oversight, fails to open a smaller door for Kakuda at the exact time of 7:15 p.m. This mistake unleashes the ghost’s wrath, culminating in a horrifying curse that causes the man of the house to develop a humped back—a deformity that grows until it leads to his demise on the 13th day. Indira, desperate to save her beloved husband, seeks help from an unlikely savior, Victor, an eccentric ghost hunter portrayed by the talented Riteish Deshmukh.

Sonakshi Sinha, in shedding light on her role as Indira, remarked, “In ‘Kakuda’, I play the role of a girl who believes in science and not in superstitions. However, when she encounters the peculiar ritual, she decides to dig deeper and find out the truth behind it. I must admit, balancing horror with comedy is a challenging task — it’s not easy to make people laugh while simultaneously sending chills down their spines.” For Sonakshi, who has previously portrayed a wide array of characters, this role was both refreshing and demanding. She praised her co-stars, Riteish, Saqib, and Aasif, for their off-screen humor, underscoring that the camaraderie translated seamlessly into their on-screen chemistry.

Behind the camera, the film is helmed by Aditya Sarpotdar, a director known for his work in “Mauli,” “Zombivli,” and the recent hit “Munjya.

Playing the role of Victor, an unconventional ghost hunter, allowed me to tap into a side of my acting abilities that I hadn’t fully explored before.
