The highly anticipated trailer of the intense dark thriller ‘Bloody Daddy’ starring Shahid Kapoor was launched with great fanfare in Mumbai on May 24. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film is set to premiere exclusively on JioCinema on June 9, marking JioCinema’s first direct-to-OTT release. With a stellar ensemble cast including Diana Penty, Sanjay Kapoor, Ronit Roy, and Rajeev Khandelwal, ‘Bloody Daddy’ is poised to be one of Bollywood’s biggest digital releases.
‘Bloody Daddy’ takes audiences on an adrenaline-fueled journey as Sumair (played by Shahid Kapoor) confronts Gurugram’s white-collar drug lords, treacherous friends, a ruthless crime boss, corrupt and honest cops, and deadly narcs, all in a single fateful night. Set against the backdrop of a post-COVID party apocalypse, this resilient man embraces a dangerous new reality and will stop at nothing to protect the one relationship that truly matters to him.
Shahid Kapoor expressed his excitement about his unconventional role in the film, stating, “I have been eager to do a full-fledged action film, and when Ali approached me with this project, I knew it was the one! It’s high-octane, action-packed, thrilling, and intense, tailored specifically for a digital-first audience. Ali is a master of this genre, and collaborating with him has been incredibly enriching. We are both thrilled about the creation and can’t wait to see how the audience reacts.”
Director Ali Abbas Zafar discussed the journey of making ‘Bloody Daddy’ and breaking stereotypes, saying, “While dark crime thrillers are common in the West, India hasn’t seen many films of this caliber and intensity. ‘Bloody Daddy’ shatters all conventions, from Shahid’s transformation into a killing machine to being one of the first direct-to-OTT films created on such a grand scale! It is a hard-hitting, dark action thriller that promises raw and authentic action.”
Produced by Jyoti Deshpande, Sunir Kheterpal, Gaurav Bose, Himanshu Kishan Mehra, and Ali Abbas Zafar, ‘Bloody Daddy’ is a collaboration between Jio Studios, AAZ Films, Offside Entertainment, and Vermilion World.
