Ridhi Dogra, who has made her mark on television and OTT platforms with the shows Asur (2020) and Married Woman (2021), is now set to make her foray into Hindi cinema with the action-thriller Lakadbaggha, where she will be seen alongside Anshuman Jha.

The film will see her portraying a crime branch officer in Kolkata. The actress will need to perform some major acrobatic action sequences in the film, and Dogra has already begun training with Jha. 

Speaking about what drew her to this character, Dogra said, "Very rarely does one come across an action film whose story, at its core, is universal and has heart. And this Catholic-Bengali cop character is very evolved and righteous, yet loving and passionate. I may have played a forensic cop before but this is very different — she takes things head-on, she is in charge. She is a woman in power vis-a-vis a woman who is part of the team in power, and that excites me."

Explaining why she had signed up for this project, Dogra said, "I am not the kind of actor who will simply jump to be a part of a film; it has to be meaningful, the process has to have some purpose. Which is why I have chosen Lakadbaggha to be my feature film debut. I have always chosen to pick teams with depth over superficial things which are important otherwise. The vibe, energy and passion arevimportant. And from the first moment I saw Anshuman talk about the film, I knew I wanted to be a part of his process because there was passion, conviction and clarity."
