Khuda Haafiz is trending today on social media channels. The reason being it stars the Commando series hero Vidyut Jammwal who is an outsider in the industry. The undue attention is attributed to a shift in the focus of cinema-goers from the nepotism sick Bollywood industry. The movie is likely to receive a full house, all thanks to the perspective change brought in by Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. It is evident on social media where the hashtag #SupportOutsidersSupportVidyut is getting massive support from all quarters.
Starring Vidyut Jammwal, it is directed by Faruk Kabir. Jammwal is supported by Shivaleeka Oberoi, Shiv Panditt, Annu Kapoor, and Aahana Kumra. It is produced under the banner of Panorama Studios. It is an action-packed thriller with exceptional mature acting and insane fighting skills by Jammwal.
Khuda Haafiz will be premiering on Disney Plus Hotstar from today. It has been given prime slot from 14 August, evening at 7:30 pm.
Based on the true-life story, Khuda Haafiz is all about the determination of a husband to find his missing wife in a foreign land. Set in 2008, the role of the husband is played by Jammwal while Shivaleeka Oberoi plays his missing wife, Nargis. A well-knit movie promises action-packed scenes where Sameer is racing against time to rescue his wife from sex traffickers. In the process, he meets people, gets support from them in a foreign land, and uncovers shady dealings.
Khuda Haafiz is full of thrill, action, and surprises with Vidyut in a never-seen-avatar. While commenting on the title of the film, director Kabir said Khuda Haafiz stands for goodbye and also “your guardian is God”.

Recently there was some controversy around Disney+Hotstar not sending out invites to any of the cast members during its grand announcement event. Vidyut had expressed displeasure at obvious favoritism in the industry. He openly expressed his feelings and wrote, “A BIG announcement for sure!! 7 films scheduled for release but only 5 are deemed worthy of representation. 2 films, receive no invitation or intimation. It’s a long road ahead. THE CYCLE CONTINUES.”
July had seen another movie of Jammwal getting an OTT release. Tigmanshu Dhulia’s “Yaara” was released on Zee5, where Jamwal was brilliant in the role of a criminal smuggler. He received critical acclaim for acting skills. The other star cast included actors like Amit Sadh and Vijay Verma.
