Akshay Kumar's Cuttputlli is all set to start streaming on Disney+ Hotstar from September 2 onwards. The film is the remake of the 2018 psychological crime thriller Ratsasan which starred Vishnu Vishal and Amala Paul in lead roles. The scene in the upcoming Hindi remake of the film has shifted from Chennai to Kasauli. 

The trailer is out and we can see Akshay Kumar as a cop in Kasauli.  It looks like Akshay Kumar's character is a married man unlike the original. The film is gorgeously shot and the panoramic views of the mountains build the tension. It will be interesting to see how this narrative plays out when set in a different setting. 

During an interview, Akshay Kumar said, “Set once upon a time in Kasauli amidst the backdrop of nature’s beauty, the film unveils incidents of ugly killings. It’s filled with enthralling twists and turns. I play an underdog investigation officer, Arjan Sethi who is on a trail to catch the psychopath killer whose motives are unpredictable and unclear. Here, revenge is an illusion and the last act of the movie is unthinkable and will take you by total surprise – and that’s what makes it unique!”

The film's director Ranjit M Tewari said, “Being given an opportunity to collaborate with Akshay sir for the second time was extremely humbling & exciting. I was attracted to Cuttputlli because the work of our police forces always intrigued me. I wanted our audiences to visually experience the mental acumen and perseverance along with the physical handwork that goes into solving a case.”

Cuttputli stars Akshay Kumar, Sargun Mehta, Rakul Preet Singh, and Chandrachur Singh and revolves around 3 Murders that takes place in the city of Kasauli where a cop is after a ruthless serial killer out on the loose.
