Today, the makers of the film shared a new poster of the lead actors to announce the release date. Saakini Daakini will be releasing in theatres on September 16th.
The release date poster shows the daredevil ladies Regina and Nivetha giving serious gazes. Saakini Daakini is directed by Sudheer Varma of Swamy Ra Ra fame. It is a remake of an investigative thriller, Midnight Runners, a 2017 Korean action-comedy.
Take a look at the poster here:
The project is being bankrolled by Suresh Productions. Following the phenomenal success of Oh Baby, the Telugu remake of the Korean comedy Miss Granny, which was also produced by Suresh Productions, the popular banner is back with another Korean remake, which is being remade in Telugu.
The film tells the story of two students at a police academy and how they bust a gang of human traffickers. While the original featured two male actors in the lead, it is learnt that the Telugu remake will feature female actors Regina Cassandra and Nivetha Thomas in the lead roles. It is known that Shakini and Dakini are the names of powerful ghosts, according to Hindu mythology. Apparently, both Nivetha and Regina will be seen in powerful roles in the movie, as the title suggests. In fact, Nivetha and Regina are performing some risky stunts for the film shoot which was already wrapped up.
