The makers of nail-biting thriller ‘Cuttputlli’, on Saturday released the trailer of Akshay Kumar, Rakul Preet Singh, and Sargun Mehta starrer.
Akshay joins forces with Rakul Preet, Sargun and Chandrachur Singh amongst others to take audiences on a journey of an investigative cop as he uses his passion and knowledge to unearth a series of wrongdoings in Kasauli.
Sharing the trailer on social media, Disney+Hotstar wrote, “3 Murders, 1 City, a Cop and a Serial- Killer out on the loose! #CuttputlliOnHotstar drops on 2nd September.”
Akshay plays Arjan Sethi, a dutiful sub-inspector who took an oath to keep the people of Kasauli safe. However, fate has other plans as the killer strikes from the shadows of terror, leaving behind no trace of evidence, except a body.
Produced by Vashu Bhagnani and Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh and Pooja Entertainment, Directed by Ranjit M Tewari, ‘Cuttputli’ unmasks the killer and decodes the mystery using Arjan’s skills to understand the psyche of the murderer.
