The trailer for Haddi, the eagerly anticipated direct-to-digital film, was recently released by ZEE5 Global, the largest streaming platform for South Asian content globally. Viewers and reviewers nationwide have been enthralled and enthralled with Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s transgender character in the movie ever since the teaser debuted on the site. In addition to Nawazuddin Siddiqui, notable actors Anurag Kashyap, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Saurabh Sachdeva, Shridhar Dubey, Bigg Boss 17 Rajesh Kumar, Vipin Sharma, and Saharsh Shukla co-star in the gritty noir vengeance drama. Premiering now on ZEE5 Global, Haddi is a crime vengeance drama produced by Zed Studios and Anandita Studios.
The film, which is set against the backdrop of contemporary ruins in Gurgaon, Noida, and the National Capital Region (NCR), takes viewers on a vindictive journey through the life of Haddi, a transgender person played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Haddi comes to Delhi from Allahabad to join a gang of transgender people and rises to the top of the criminal food chain to exact revenge on his family for being wronged by a powerful gangster who is now a politician, Anurag Kashyap. “Haddi,” a dark and twisty revenge drama co-written by Akshat Ajay Sharma and Adamya Bhalla, deftly reveals the complex web of criminal underworld activity that permeates the nation’s capital.
“In my head, I never thought that I was playing the role of a transgender,” stated Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Being a whole woman is what every transgender woman desires to be, so I always treated it as portraying a feminine role. I stayed with transgender groups before filming, so I was aware of their desire to embrace femininity. I learned a lot from this experience, and I should portray a female character instead of acting out the part. I prepared carefully since I knew it would be difficult because I would have to change into a different character on the same day after two to three hours of makeup application.
“I am proud of Akshat and the hard work he has put in to make Haddi what it is,” Anurag Kashyap remarked. I’ve worked with Akshat for many years as an AD (assistant director), and I had the good fortune to be an actor in his first feature picture as a filmmaker. Haddi is seductive, fervent, dramatic, full of drama and retaliation, and unlike anything you have ever seen. Fans will also like Nawaz in this unrecognizable yet poignant scene since he has once again exceeded expectations. I’m looking forward to Haddi’s premiere on ZEE5 Global and hope audiences will find this drama about crime and revenge to be an incredible experience.
“Haddi circles around the intoxicating world of vengeance, violence, and power, delving into the very essence of a criminal’s psyche,” said director Akshat Ajay Sharma. It draws attention to how brutal society is. I took a long time developing this politician-mobster-transgender drama, giving each character a lot of depth. I am sincerely hoping that “Haddi” surpasses all expectations and makes a lasting impression on the viewers of ZEE5 Global.
Ila Arun stated, “Haddi is a unique and special kind of revenge drama film portraying the community of transgender people. It has an intriguing storyline, a detailed script, and an engaging plot.” Since Revati Maa plays a significant role in the movie, playing her in the role was extremely special. Coincidentally, I am the sole female performer in the movie. Haddi portrays gang warfare, feelings, the realities of life, the establishment of power structures, and the ways in which a corrupt society exploits the vulnerabilities of transgender people and their struggle for equality. I’m hoping that Haddi’s admirers would watch and adore him differently.
