For the unversed, in a recent social media post on October 9, John Abraham took a moment to express his admiration for the team behind the upcoming film Dhak Dhak. He not only praised the film for its focus on 'celebrating life' but also commended its producers, Taapsee Pannu and Pranjal Khandhdiya, for their courage in bringing it to life. 

Speaking of the same, during an interview with News18, Pranjal Khandhdiya, expressed his joy and gratitude towards John for his support, especially for a 'non-star led film'. He asserted, "When I got the script, the first visuals in my mind were from Dhoom. We've all watched the Dhoom series and the iconic John Abraham riding a Hayabusa or a Ducati, and that's the first image that comes to our mind when we talk about bikes."

Describing John's reaction upon watching the trailer of Dhak Dhak, Pranjal shared, "The one thing we were very sure of was that we weren't making a biker chick flick. Our focus was on ordinary women taking up riding and going on an extraordinary journey. This aspect also appealed to John when he watched the trailer.”

Pranjal continued, “He couldn't resist writing an appreciation note for us and personally congratulating each actor. Referring to John as his 'idol', the producer emphasized the significance of John's appreciation. "A shout-out from the man you've idolized means a lot. He's the original bike fanatic, and the whole nation knows that."

Dhak Dhak marks the debut of Taapsee and Pranjal in big-screen production under the banner of Outsider Films. Pranjal also shed light on his equation with Taapsee, explaining that their association began in 2018 and evolved from a professional collaboration to a profound friendship, and ultimately, a business partnership. 

Coming back to the film, Dhak Dhak boasts an ensemble cast, including Ratna Pathak Shah, Dia Mirza Rekhi, Fatima Sana Shaikh, and Sanjana Sanghi. The film is set for release on October 13.
